i applied to the ttp during the last application period and was interviewed for er and icu. they prefer people who have tech or aide experience. also, they hired only 1 per unit and each unit interviewed around 15 applicants. the interview itself was pretty easy. good luck.
As of February 2012, new grads get paid $21 at St. Vincent in Indy. I left after four months and I'm now getting paid $32 in Vegas as a new grad. I understand the cost of living is lower but that pay is ridiculous and the benefits weren't very good. Older nurses told me that they received a 2% raise last year. Umm, what am I gonna do with $0.42?
i just got a call to schedule a phone interview with the assistant manager of the sulpizio cvicu =)
didn’t go to my interview this morning because i was offered a job somewhere else. just wanted to say good luck to everyone and hope your interview went well
got a rejection email for thornton ICU. it said i didn't have enough experience which i don't understand considering i completed a critical care RN residency, a critical care clinical rotation, and a preceptorship in the PICU. this is so frustrating. still holding out for the CVICU and CCU though.
has anyone heard from any of the other ICUs?
- PICU training program
- PICU preceptorship
- May 2011
- 5 week critical care residency. at the end of the residency, there weren’t enough critical care positions available so i was offered a position in a head & neck progressive care unit instead. been working on the unit for almost 2 months.
oh, and thanks for the advice. i don’t have internet explorer so i guess i’ll be finishing my app tomorrow instead.
good luck everyone =)
is anyone else having problems with their application? the system keeps signing me off!
i moved to las vegas after graduating with my bsn and it’s horrible out there for a new grad nurse who isn’t a local. i ended up getting hired in indianapolis. there are more jobs here and many different hospitals in the area who are willing to hire new grads.
i'll send it be the end of today.
i’ll send it be the end of today.
I have a previous degree from Purdue so I thought relocating back to Indiana wouldn’t be too bad.
I have no idea what certifications you need in med/surg but I would just get them now anyway just to set yourself apart.
Also, what’s your email? I can send my stuff today if you need it. Let me know.
Thanks! I actually found a great apartment in Carmel.
In all honesty, I’m not really sure how I got the job but I will tell you about myself. I got hired into the critical care residency. During my last semester of school, I was selected for a highly competitive 90-hour PICU preceptorship and also completed a critical care clinical rotation. I have a 3.84 nursing GPA and a cumulative GPA of 3.71. I have 5 great letters of recommendation from previous clinical instructors as well as PALS, ACLS, and EKG certifications. I got my resume professionally done and have a pretty good cover letter. Since I am from the west coast, I emphasized that I do have friends within the area and want to continue my nursing education at IUPUI. I also gave my interviewer a copy of my portfolio and sent a handwritten thank you card. I have no hospital experience and actually spelt the nursing manager’s name wrong on my thank you card but I was still hired so I guess it didn’t matter. LOL. I’ve gone on 7 interviews and this is the only place that offered me a position. I’m very excited because this is my dream job
If you want, I can send you my resume and cover letter. Also, if you have any other questions, just let me know. It took me 8 months to find a job and I’m considered one of the top students in my class. Eventually you will find something as well. Good luck!
Thanks for the information
i recently accepted a new grad position at st. vincent and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on where i should live. any information would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance
