I didn't find another topic relating to the new grad RN program for Children's Hospital Colorado, so I decided to start a thread. Anyone else apply for the August cohort? I live in San Diego... Read More

    The fmgirl, I dont think we are getting a skills survey, are we? The recruiter told me that the skills survey was for our references. So basically we submit their email addresses, & they send them a link to the on-line skills survey-- that they take in lieu of a Letter of Rec.

    We basically have 2 interviews, and a scenarios exam (that we take after our interviews). Is there more? Thx.

    Sassy29, that was my impression as well, 2 interviews, one w/ the educators, the other one w/ the managers, and one written exam.
    I'm excited and scared.

    Thanks roborn. You actually have more info that I do... I knew it was 2 interviews but they never told me with who?? I knew one would probably be with the nurse managers, but who are the educators?? Are they nurse educators, or HR folks??

    Ya-- I feel the same way... So excited but kinda freaking out too! Haha.

    Sassy, you are correct. If I would read before I type, I might figure it out for myself

    For those interviewing for either CCBD or NICU, I have been informed they are hiring 4 in each unit and interviewing 9 for each unit. Given that 2 people (that I know of so far) are double interviews, this makes it 50/50 chances for everyone, since they're only interviewing 16 different people! Best of luck. I look forward to hearing from those who get jobs so that we can celebrate with you!

    Wow, thefmgirl, how did you find out that information? Did you ask the recruiter?
    I would like to find out the ration for the Oncology unit....

    Thanks for all the great info thefmgirl! I am interviewing for ED so no idea how many folks are in the "mix" for that dept. Does anyone know anything about the scenarios exam?? I am trying to figure out where to focus my review time.

    Roborn, I emailed the recruiter for the numbers. I just happened to know that at least 2 of us were being interviewed for the same two units.

    They told me during my interview, they are hiring 38 people-- That's a lot-- WooHoo! (I do not know the unit breakdowns.)

    When was everyone told they would hear back by? What unit did you interview for? I interviewed for the 6th floor.
  10. by   Sassy29RN
    They said they would be going through all the candidates (exams, interviews, etc) today-- Fri. But said it might take a couple weeks to let people know. I interviewed for ED. Good luck to everyone!

    I interviewed for the medical unit. They told me they were hoping to choose by the end of today; so it could be as early as next week they start making calls for offers, but it could be as long as a couple weeks depending on references. Fingers crossed for all of us!
