Parkland Critical Care Nurse Residency Sept 2012

  1. Hi all,

    I'm somewhat new to this forum. I applied to Parkland's MICU and SICU residency. I've already received the email saying my apps were forwarded to the hiring manager. I'm looking for any info on what the hiring process is like, far as, how long after receiving the email did you get an interview and also any info on how the residency works. My dream is either to get into the ED or one of the critical care areas. I know this would be a great opportunity to be employed at a Level I trauma center. Any advice, tips, connections and info would be greatly appreciated.

    I hope we do. I've been reading previous threads and it seems like it's a long process.

    I think it will be a pretty long process...I have read all the other threads and it seems like the waiting game is how everyone played it out. Waiting is the hardest part.

    I tried sending you a PM. I'm new to this site and I don't think I can reply. But I am very curious about the residency

    It'll probably pick up when one of us say "Guess what I got called in for an interview" but I wish someone would offer some insight.

    LOL Me too because the posting for MICU has been down for like a week now and I want to know if they start sending out emails etc

    I'm guessing maybe the first or second week of August hopefully they'll start sending out emails.

    Yep, it will pick up once people start hearing from the recruiters. I know I will post if I do!

    Hello my fellow Eager-Ladies-in-Waiting!

    I applied in early July and I have received the "your application is under review" e-mail about 8 times. In fact, I have one sitting in my inbox sent about an hour ago; plus I just received one yesterday that said it is "still under review." According to current friends in SICU, NICU, L&D, and OR- this is a good sign. They all received multiple e-mails stating the same or similar things.

    I will update when I hear anything new! Please do the same!

    While I want a residency position, I hope the best for all of you and I hope to hear of good news for any of you!
