    Sorry for your bad news ): How did they notify you? And was it the NICU loop you interviewed for? I interviewed for L&D almost 3 weeks ago and haven't heard anything yet...long wait!

    Nothing yet! It's been almost 3 weeks since my interview...hoping they let us know soon!

    Yes, she wrote back and confirmed that the rejection email was only referring to the NICU loop (the position I did not interview for)...so still waiting to hear back from L&D. This wait is awful!

    I would pay it by the 17th to avoid being dropped...just in case. I haven't paid it yet, only because I'm waiting to hear if I got a job and should hear any day now. But if I haven't heard by Monday, I will pay the T2P tuition then.

    I just got an email that was a little confusing. It was a rejection letter for the NICU loop saying thank you for interviewing but we've chosen another candidate. However, I only interviewed for the L&D loop- never even met the NICU manager. So I'm really hoping the letter only pertained to the NICU loop and that I still have a chance for the L&D loop (haven't heard from them). I emailed them back asking for clarification.

    Has anyone else heard anything yet? For those who interviewed for the L&D loop, when were you told you would hear back? They told me around 2 weeks, maybe a little longer and my interview was on May 31.

    I think they got the statuses a little mixed up. I applied for both loops, but have only interviewed for L&D loop (my first choice). The other day when I checked my status, the L&D loop one still said "referred to hiring manager" and the NICU loop one said "consideration for interview" although I've heard nothing from NICU since responding to their initial questions. Today I checked again and NICU status says "interviewed- pending decision" and L&D says "consideration for interview". So I'm pretty sure they just got a little mixed up.

    Congrats on your first interview (: Which loop was it for?

    Hi SDRN03- how did your interview go today? Good I hope! (:

    My interview was for the L&D loop. It ended up being 3 people (2 managers of L&D, 1 of FMCC) and they were very nice. I felt like it went really well, but then again you never know what exactly they are looking for and who else they are interviewing. There were some behavioral questions, but not as many as in past interviews I've had. They wanted to know more specifics about my preceptorship, and there was one prioritization question. I was told they will not be letting people know for 2 weeks, possibly a little longer. That wait is going to be so hard! Good luck on your interview next week! Which loop are you interviewing for?

    Yes, unfortunately I did not get in. I got an email about a week ago. I did get into 3 other programs and also have an interview for an RN job next week, so at least there are some good options (:

    How about you?

    I graduated from SMU in May 2012. I have applied to over 300 jobs, have had 3 interviews and only one job offer (in NC) which I turned down to to the hardship it would have caused to go there. I also mentioned in my app that I had applied to grad school to get my MSN but that I really would like to work over going back to school at this point. I have been volunteering in a hospital for around 6 months, have taken a Maternity course where I'm living, have networked, and gotten certifications. I also mentioned that I am taking a medical spanish class as well as working toward another certification specific to my field of interest.

    I got into the program and was planning on attending, but just found out the other day I got an interview at a wonderful hospital in my preferred unit. So if I get that job, I will definitely take it. If not, I'll see you guys in the T2P program!

    Good luck to those who haven't heard yet!

    I applied for the recent new grad program in the Perinatal loop (there were actually 2 different ones this time) and am unable to find a thread for this particular app cycle. I have an interview next Friday and am VERY excited. This is really my ideal job and I'd be so happy to get a chance to work there.

    Anyway, I was hoping I might be able to get some pointers from those who interviewed last time around- what types of questions did they ask? In the interviews I've had so far, it's been mostly behavioral- i.e. tell me about a time you used the nursing process with a patient or what would you do if you had a conflict with a coworker. I have not been asked any clinical questions yet, but does UCSD ask those types of questions?

    Any advice/ input is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    I logged into my account and the tuition due is the amount for the T2P program, plus at some point I was able to see those words as something I was registered for. After clicking some stuff, I can't see that anymore. I'll probably call the school tomorrow to confirm, but yes, please let me know if you hear back.

    I'm assuming they tell you what clinicals you're doing during the orientation that is listed for July 1?

    I got an email from SMU Admissions office this afternoon saying congratulations on your acceptance to take course(s) at SMU for the summer 2013 and then a lot of instructions on requirements to get done (i.e. health insurance, payment, etc). I'm of course assuming this means I got accepted, but I wish the email had specifically said something specific about Transition to Practice program. I guess I'm just a little weary of good news until it is totally clear.

    Has anyone else heard anything?
