Johns Hopkins PICU-NEW GRAD.

  1. 1 Hello EVERYONE!

    I just recently interviewed for a position in the PICU at JHH, and was hoping to hear from others who have recently done the same! I'd love to hear about the experiences had throughout the NEW GRAD. Orientation Program, or talk with those who are just beginning or planning to begin this program! : )

    Hey,

    I just applied for the peds unit a week or so ago and just received a primary interest email. I requested picu, peds hem/onc and peds med/surg. I graduate in May so I'll be a new grad. How long did it take for them to respond after the primary interest email? I'm so anxious as you could imagine.

    hey guys, any updates?

    @zvcampbell how was the interview? what types of questions did they ask you?

    i also applied to jhh's peds program mid-march, and received a primary interest email about a week or so later. i told the recruiter my areas of interest, and a few days later she said she forwarded my application to the picu. i hope they contact me for an interview! i'm so anxious!

    For all of you who have gotten a primary interest letter or were hired, were you told by HR what made your applications stand out to them? I am currently filling out my application now and am debating on whether or not I should attach a cover letter. Thanks for the help!

    Hey! So... I was offered an opportunity to interview about a week or two after I responded to the primary interest request! : ) And the interview was fairly basic. I was asked: What inspired you to be a nurse? Why pediatrics? Why critical care? How would a close friend describe you in three words? How would a superior describe you in three words? Where do you see yourself in 3-5 years? Etc... It felt very casual, and comfortable! And I was hired! @Focus&Determined, we're you contacted for an interview? @sac06019, I wasn't told what had made my application stand out, but I did provide a cover letter, and a handful of references from my nursing instructors!

    hey,
    I work at Hopkins now, and they're "staffing-up" because they are opening a new children's hospital, and adult tower. It would be realy good to get your app in now and have a great CL and references.

    @tootie88, I do not see any current openings for new graduates on their career website. Do you know if there is anything else that I can possibly do to apply as a new graduate?

    @sac06019 I'm unsure if the req will be listed as a "New Grad Nurse", it may be nurse clinician 1. I'll ask around at work today and let you know.

    Sac06019 I asked and was told to tell you to look for an NCI posting, and where the experience field is it should say 0-6 or something.

    @Tootie88, Thanks! I don't see any NCI postings right now on their website, I guess I'll just have to keep checking back

    I received a primary interest letter on the 12th and no response back yet...I didn't put down any references other then their contact information. I attached my resume and cover letter. Hopefully they have something available or tell if they don't!

    Also I called the nurse recruiters earlier this semester and they sent me this email with the details for new grad applications. Here it is

    Please note that our new graduate RN positions are titled “Nurse Clinician” (no Roman Numerals following). Please verify that the position is an entry level position by reading through job description, click on “Apply Now” then “Application Process” to search our available positions. The postings on our site represent a comprehensive list of positions the hospital currently has available for applicants at this time. Unfortunately, applying online is the only way to be considered for available positions with The Johns Hopkins Hospital. We do apologize should there be no current opportunities listed for Nurse Clinicians (New graduates). We encourage our new graduates to check the website daily for new postings.

    Approximately 7 business days after submitting your application, you will receive a response from a Nurse Recruiter regarding your eligibility status, requesting dates of availability and instructions on what you will need to bring to your interview. Please see the “Interview Preparation” section on our website for all pertinent information.

    Also, new graduates have the benefit of an orientation program called “SPRING” or “PEDS” to aide you in your transition from a student to a practicing RN. You may also want to read up on these programs on our website listed under the “Students and New Grad” heading. Enrollment into these programs is automatic upon being offered a position with The Johns Hopkins Hospital.

    I hope this information was helpful to you. Should you have any additional questions or concerns, please call our office at 410-502-3161.

    We wish you much continued success as you pursue your career.

    Does anyone have any tips on getting in at JHH as a new grad? Are positions starting to open up. I check every day for NC positions and have recently applied for 2, one surgery and one surgery ICU. Any info would be helpful.

    Thanks
