- Sep 28, '11 by sbrownRNHi everyone I was contacted for an interview with the cardiac sicu. I provided the dates that I could interview two weeks ago. I was contacted back yesterday by the recruiter, who said the dates I gave her wouldn't work. She asked for additional dates. Hoping to still be considered, I responded by telling her I was available tomorrow or anytime thereafter that was convenient for them. Now, I'm totally freaking out that they're going to want to interview tomorrow! I know that I requested that, but I just didn't want to lose out on the job :\ I really feel like I need to prepare more for the interview. Do you think they will actually want to interview me tomorrow? So nervous about this this morning, as I try to cram interview info into my head. Any response is greatly appreciated! I'm hoping that those of you who have experience wiht JHH and interviewing can shed some light for me.
- Sep 29, '11 by aNYTrini-n-FLRNQuote from PokytrokytI read these post almost everyday and they give me inspiration.. Pokytrokyt what unit do you work on? I am scheduled for an interview tuesday for Hasted 6 hospitaist and Meyer 9 Neuro... any insight to wither units?I guess I forgot in all the excitement to get back here and let everyone know how my interview turned out. I was interviewed by HR and the nurse manager on June 29th. I was asked about my nursing school clinicals in critical care, and social questions about why I want to be a nurse, my previous non-nursing work experience, etc. The interviews plus the time spent shadowing a nurse on the unit was about 4 hours. A couple hours after I got home, the nurse manager called and offered me a job.
Once I jump through a few more hurdles with health screenings and background checks, I'll be starting in critical care at Hopkins on July 25th. Many thanks to all who offered insight on what kinds of questions to expect during my interview... It made me much more relaxed and prepared for the interview.
- Sep 30, '11 by LAtoMDThe psychiatric department is outstanding at Hopkins. Meyer 9 is part of the psychiatric building. I just got a job at Meyer 3-General Psych unit (my first unit of choice) so I can eventually move up and work in the Intensive Treatment Unit and the Psych/ED.
Treat your shadow experience as an interview. Ask questions. Show them you're interested. Get to know everyone on the unit!!!
- I've been biting my nails lately, so maybe someone can calm my nerves over this.
I got the "primary interest" e-mail from JHH on Friday in response to my application for a peds position (which I couldn't remember if it was med-surg or PICU :\ ). Anyways. I said my primary interest was in pediatrics, with sub-interests in med-surg and critical care. With secondary interest in periop.
The reason I'm stressing is because retrospectively I realize "critical care" is broad in the sense that it really covers PICU, NICU, ED, and so on... Not to say that I'm not interested in any of those, because I am, but I'm stressing thinking that I should have been more specific.
Did anyone else put "critical care" rather than ICU as one of their primary interests? Where did you get an interview?
I'm on my second business day of waiting for a reply...any insight as to how long I should expect to wait?
- Oct 18, '11 by aNYTrini-n-FLRNI know what you are going through.. I know telling you it will be ok is not going to calm your nerves until you get that email. What I have been told from the recruiter about applying for ICU is unless you have had an ICU practicum or (I believe/not 100% sure) 120 clinical hours of ICU you will NOT be considered for an entry level ICU position.
- understandable. I only had a couple 1-day rotations to the ICU and ED. But my classmate had that or less and got offered a job in the PICU.
- Oct 18, '11 by JdjmjThe 120 hours does not apply to the PICU. I just got hired on that unit without any ICU clinical experience. It took about a week to hear back from the recruiter. I listed the PICU as my first choice in my email.
- Quote from JdjmjCongrats!!! And thanks for the time-frame, I feel better nowThe 120 hours does not apply to the PICU. I just got hired on that unit without any ICU clinical experience. It took about a week to hear back from the recruiter. I listed the PICU as my first choice in my email.
- Oct 31, '11 by ScarlettanagerI JUST got a primary interest from JHH. The problem I am having is that I forgot which unit I applied for, but I think its peds Does it matter? And what do I say for the area I am interested in. My real interest is ED but I do not know if I can say that or if I can only say peds subspecialties (if I had applied to peds that is). I am confused...

I had a similar issue when I got my primary interest e-mail. I couldn't remember what type of pediatric unit I applied for. I told them my main interest was in ped's med-surg, followed by critical care. Turns out I had applied for a PICU job, but they offered me a ped's med-surg interview.
so my advice is: be honest
