I just graduated this May with my BSN and just recieved my Illinois nursing license but have been having trouble finding a job and since I am able to easily move I thought I could apply to other states like Iowa and Wisconsin and get my endorsement for either state.
I appied for the fall cohort nurse residency program at the Univeristy of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in June and also interviewed there about 2 weeks ago but haven't heard anything yet.
It seems like a very big hospital to me and I don't know much about it so if anyone has any information they would like to share would be good?
I was wondering if anyone else on this site has applied to the fall nurse residency program this year or in past years? Does anyone know when the program actually starts if hired there? or have an idea when or if they call how long that will be after you interview?
I have the information/packet to apply for endorcement to Iowa but don't know if I should wait until I actually find out if I get hired in somewhere in Iowa first but also don't want to finally get hired somewhere and then run the risk of not having my license for the state.
Thanks to anyone who can share any information about the new grad residency at UIHC.
