How can I know when a New Grad Program opens?

  1. 0 I heard that you have to be in the list as soon as you can, otherwise, if you apply after... the chance of rejection is pretty high!!!

    whatever program you're looking at should list the dates they accept applications on their website. most programs i know of are already in the interview process for the january starts, applications were accepted in september.

    Keep checking the websites.

    I think Sharp and Kaiser have just opened up for new grad applications. The problem is that the application windows are usually pretty narrow, usually just a couple of weeks.

    Check the hospital websites you're interested in EVERY DAY. I applied for new grad programs and my top hospital only had the applications up for one week online, so I had to be persistent in my checking or else I would have missed it.

    I check all hospital websites in my area q. day and I check on and for hospitals that I could possibly relocate to. Unfortunately many of us are either having to relocate or drive a long commute to get in a new grad program-at least that is my experience in DFW texas! Good Luck and be persistant!

    Yep, you have to check each one individually every single day. Good luck.

    I don't know: I'm not a new grad so I wasn't specifically looking for programs--I just happened to come across their new grad posting a few days ago. I'd check with the Kaiser website for the latest info.
