Johns Hopkins Residency question

  1. Hi,

    I recently moved here and have applied for several jobs with JHH, however I was rejected for all of them. It seems that one I applied for required a bachelor's degree and the other two required experience.

    Does anyone know what the position is listed as for the residency? For example the jobs I applied for were "Nurse Clinician" and "Nurse IM Pace".

    Any light anyone could shed would be great, thanks.

    Nurse clinician positions are the entry level jobs, often times it sepcifies "entry level."

    Yes it is. Surgical ICU.

    That's so amazing. I was wishing for a unit like that. How did your interview go today?? wishing the best for you!

    Aww, thanks! Well, I wish I could say it went better, but I don't think I got the job. It seems that the entire focus was my lack of real experience in an ICU. Apparently, the NM feels that her ICU is much more critical than the one I had in school. I really tried to interject and talk about my willingness to learn, but I don't know if that helped. To be honest, I left the interview confused. She gave me her business card and asked me to email her if I thought I wanted to "proceed". I don't know what that was about. Of course, when I got home I emailed her and told her I was still very much interested. I haven't heard back yet.

    Question for you ucfRN, is the Wilmer OR for eye surgery? If so, what kinds of surgeries did you observe?

    I'm wishing the very best for you also!!! I was told if I start, it won't be until Nov. that the same for you? I hope so, I'd love to meet you!

    Well, that sounds confusing to me as well. The NM put the ball in your court? I hope she emails you by Monday with good news. Are you staying in Baltimore or commuting to the interviews? Who was the recruiter that set you up with CSICU?

    The Wilmer OR is for ophthalmic (eye) surgeries and procedures. I saw a corneal transplant and a cataract removal. The experience was nice but the position requires working 5 days a week (8 hours a day). Would you be interested in that?
    They don't pay nearly as much as the CSICU would though.
    And yes, I would begin Nov 28 if offered.

    Btw, JHH has not posted any new positions on their site lately.. Have you noticed that?

    Yes, she did...never thought that would happen! I actually live close to Baltimore already. It's about a 25 minute commute for me. Actually, I would be interested in 5 days a week, 8 hours a day. So, RN's don't make the same there as they would somewhere else? Hmmm....that kinda wonky isn't it, lol?
