    Yes, that is really good to know. This way, If I dont hear by Friday, I will know I #failed! I also agree that getting in should be the hard part...moving around not as much. As long as they dont make you commit like 3 yrs on a unit, that would be tough to swallow. I can dig one or two though

    Thanks again for sharing ALL of this info. Im definitely less anxious knowing a lot of what to expect and what to prepare!

    Im so excited that I have an interview at Hopkins next week for a UAP/RN position. Im scheduled to meet with recruiter, and interview with two nurse managers and have share time on two floors. From 9-5! Longest. Interview. Ever. Im hopeful it will be a great experience, but Im definitely nervous! Im wondering... what to expect? The email says to "BRING" scrubs/comfortable shoes...does that mean I should show up in a interview clothes and change? That seems tacky. Does anyone have experience with share time? Are there any tests or clinical type questions the first day? Also, getting ahead...anyone accept this position and move to an RN position-how long? WHEW...so many questions....anyone have any input? Thanks!
    I sooo feel your pain! I too have an interview on Friday and I am so nervous! I am nit-picking every little detail. I thought I had an outfit picked out, but now I'm not sure... Really don't want to blow this opportunity.

    oh y'all have got this! RELAX and be yourself. The nurse managers purposely do the interview in as relaxed as an environment as possible!

    Thanks LAtoMD. I'm feeling a little better now that I'm starting to get everything straight in my head that I want to convey to them. Did you have a really difficult time finding the hospital? I'm just wondering if I should do a test drive on Thursday. Also, did you have to spend an hour with the recruiter doing "paperwork"? Just curious if I will be interviewing with her also. Thank you for guiding us through this

    No it's really easy once you get on Orleans St. (But I live in DT Baltimore so it's like less than 2miles away). Once you get in the parking tower it's very easy to find nurse recruitment and there are several HELP/receptionist counters throughout the outpatient facility which will guide you to the nurse recruitment office.

    No it really wasn't an hour with recruitment. When you first get there they ask if you brought anything that they might have requested, like letters of recommendation, transcript, copy of RN license, etc. Then they'll bring you to a little wait room where I met several other applicants (it helps you relax once you start talking to other people who are in the same position you are). And the nurse recruiter basically goes over a little bit of what position you are interviewing for, your unit etc. and they'll also really quickly cover some of the benefits (my recruiter talked so quickly I barely understood everything but they give you a folder with all of the information to read up on at a later time). It's really good to communicate with the recruiter about any other positions available. Like I was set up for two UAP/RN interviews that day initially and one had to cancel so my recruiter asked if there was any other interests I had. I told her psych and she immediately set me up for an interview for the following Tuesday (where I got the RN NC I position). So keep an open communication with your recruiter. I don't know about y'all but I made an effort to show her how genuinely interested and thankful I was in this opportunity so she really responded to that.

    Any other questions?

    I'm flying back home to New Orleans to get the rest of my stuff before orientation starts. I still feel like I'm floating on a bubble because I finally have a job. haha. Y'all will do fine the recruitment staff at Johns Hopkins is superb.

    You have no idea how much your tips have helped ease my mind! Thank you, so much! I could probably ask you a million more questions, lol but I will spare you.

    I bet you do feel like you're in a whirlwind still moving and everything. Trust me, I understand. I moved to Maryland in August, from Texas, and I still can't believe I actually have 3 interviews with Johns Hopkins! I keep telling my husband, surely they'll hire me for one of the positions, lol!

    I have indeed expressed a lot of interest to the recruiter. I spoke with her on the phone and she was very, very nice. I would have to agree that they are awesome!

    Good luck on your trip back to New Orleans!

    Hey all!

    I had my first interview with JHH yesterday! Here's some info of what I experienced so you know what to expect.

    I met with the nurse recruiter at 9am. We went over benefits, compensation and then she walked me over, across the street to the Wilmer OR. At 10am, I met with the nurse manager and we talked about the position, what to expect etc. At 11, she gave me a pair of scrubs for the OR and I changed to see two surgeries. I met with circulators and scrubs. Nicest staff
    There are two more applicants and then she will call me, so one is sbrownRN good luck to all of you. I really enjoyed the hospital and think I did really well.

    Best wishes! And please let me know how your interviews went!

    Wow, more great info! I dont think Ive ever been so prepped for an interview! Thanks again all; hopefully you will all me be new co-workers, and we must meet and do lunch I've been jittery all day, making everything is perfect, so hopefully I will be at ease tomorrow! @sbrownRN....check out this site with specific directions to nurse recruitment....http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/nursi...cruitment.html hope this helps. Im expected in at 9, but I think I will leave my house shortly after 7 (its a half hour commute, and I have to be prepared to get lost/hit traffic downtown!). Best of luck!!

    Hi everyone !

    I am in the process of applying to JHH as a new grad and I was just wondering what your GPA's were like and if had any previouse experience. Im curious as to what they are looking for and if I have a chance at getting an interview. Also, if you have any tips on how to get an interview that would be great!

    Thanks a lot !

    Hi! My GPA was a 3.5 and I had made the Dean's List several times. However, I have no experience...nada. I do have an extensive 10 year work history, however and 2 years spent as a business owner. I'm not sure if that helped me or not.

    My best advice would be to tell you to call the Recruitment number. They are very nice and will help you with the process. I actually kept applying (unknowingly) for positions that were for experienced nurses only. They finally emailed me and said look, you can apply for this but not that, lol. Maybe it was my persistence that got me an interview???

    Best of luck to you!!!
