    jnak: I am a senior in my BSN program currently doing pediatrics. I will graduate May 7, 2011!

    army: I applied to the main JHH in Baltimore for a nurse clinician I position. I wanted to work in pediatrics and when I looked there was a pediatric position open at the hopkinsnursing.com website. The nurse recruiter then contacted me to further specify which floor I was interested in. Hope that helps.

    sweetie85, thanks for the info! That's great that they are already interviewing for people graduating in the summer.

    I'll be graduating in July and I am primarily interested in adult critical care, so I'll have to keep my fingers crossed for new job postings.

    Just wanted to share with all of you. I graduated back in 5/88 from FL CC,and on spring break I went to JHH for interview.. It was the first year they were hiring new grads into High Risk L&D.. and back then the med-surg for one yr was really a unwritten rule, so Dean of my CC was amazed I even got interview.. I had worked as a intern while in final yr of nursing (ADN.) in newborn nursery (paid position). I also had 3.85 GPA and letters of recomendation from every teacher. But my CC instructors and Dean thought they would be consoling me after spring break..

    But I was offered the position on the spot! I was only one of 4 offered a position and only one with ADN. I was the poster child for CC for a long time.

    I was originally from MD so moving back was not difficult, (husband and 3 kids). Program consisted of intensive orientation that was awesome. I even got relocation $$... of course now this was yrs ago...
    It was the smartest decision I ever made. JHH on my resume has gotten me interviews and jobs for 20 years. I only stayed a yr and moved back to FL as my extended family was there.
    My only mistake was in going to work for community hospital in FL.. JHH was 20 yrs ahead of them and it ended up after 18 months I decided I was so uncomfortable and there were no teaching hospitals any where near me.. so I got a job in home health.. missed L&D alot and still do.. but HH was a great choice for me.

    Yes JHH was awesome, and yes it was priceless on my resume.. So if you get an offer there I would recommend taking it.. By the way, the year after I was hired they decided it worked so well they hired 17 new grads!

    I am sure things have changed alot and not all units are the same but I just wanted to share my "Old-timers" story with all of you.. Thank you for letting me share.

    Guys , i have applied to 3 positions at JHH.
    I just got a message from a recruiter : have reviewed your application for a nursing position at The Johns Hopkins Hospital and am interested in learning more about your primary interest prior to proceeding further with the interview process.
    How do I answer that?
    I just want a job!
    I have applied to peds and a position on hospital floor. I do not know what to say.
    Can someone help me tonight?

    army, just be honest! I applied for an Oncology position but listed my top 3 as Medicine, Critical Care and Surgical. The application online is more of a gateway to get your application in there. Just make sure you're OK with working at any of your top 3 choices because you might not get your top choice if it's a popular floor.

    mdgradRN, from what I've been told, medicine and surgery are sort of separated at JHH. I interviewed for a general medical unit and while they probably have some post-op patients, the majority of patients had medical issues.

    Thank you for the story! I'm from Florida and I have some family up in Maryland, but it will be big change for me if I get the position. I'm from a really small relatively new program too so this would be huge for my university. I'm still in awe that I even got an interview esp since some other hospitals won't even look at you if you are not from their home state. Still crossing my fingers and praying! As much as a I love Florida, I am ready for a change!

    Sorry for the late reply. Worked back to backs for preceptorship and then went off to Utah for the NSNA Convention. If anyone reading this still has a chance to attend one during their nursing education, I strongly recommend it! Its so worth it in every way!

    Army - I applied for pediatrics and when I got that email from the nurse recruiter I looked at all the available floors from the hospital's website, read about them and then choose my top three. Luckily my interview was for my top 2 choices. Like SBoston said, be honest, but be flexible.

    SBoston - Any news yet regarding your interview? I have nothing official, but I gave in and called my nurse manger last week tuesday. She called back friday and its sounding pretty positive. I am waiting for an actual letter or something to start getting excited. The start dates are still sketch though because of the whole wait list thing. Hope you got some positive feedback!

    I never hear back from theJHH recruiter guys. I selected the top 3 areas I wanted to work at but nothing ever since. I even called her yesterday but her assistant told me that she would forward the message. I am so stressed out. I have applied at Harbor and I was told that they need the position filled by May 1st. I am graduating may 22nd and taking the board June 1st. I applied at Suburban, Bayview, Howard, Sibley,Southern maryland, St Joseph, United Medical Center,Providence, Prince George, Franklin square, Baltimore Washington medical center,Virginia Hospital center, Union Memorial . Suburban and United medical center informed me that they have selected other candidates. What else can i do? Do nursing homes in Maryland are accepting new graduates?
