    i have not gotten a call. i am not expecting one though. i did all the paperwork from the email and send in the background check on the 6th. if there was some kind of red flag, i assume that they would have contacted me by now. There is supposed to be a bunch of people to ask questions to at the meet and greet.

    relax. i don't think they are going to contact everyone to let them know their background check went through. i think a clean background check is assumed and they will only contact you otherwise. there was no mention of a UA in any of the documentation they sent me to my recollection. Did yours say there was going to be a UA? just bring a full bladder just in case to the first day. i am sure we can ask questions at the meet and greet. relax. you got the job. if you followed the instructions on the emails they sent you, then you are good to go.

    got the offer letter yesterday as well. finally... just a few more hoops and we will be Swedish nurses!
    Don't wait until the last minute to do all the paperwork they sent. It took me way longer than expected.

    Look forward to meeting you all at the meet and greet in January!

    oh, perfect! we are in the same boat as far as the offer letter. I am glad to see that though. I was convincing myself that they changed their mind and decided not to hire me. But since you are waiting to, i figure that is not likely that they forgot me. i dont know what experience you had with them, but I am not surprised that it is taking this long. I can be patient...

    JollyHolley1986, I will be right above you on 11E!
    I think i will be starting a little after you guys because I am in the New to Acute Care position, rather than the regular residency, but i am still doing a lot of the same trainings, so I hope to meet you guys then! Please let us know when you all get the offer letters. I cannot wait!

    Congrats on all the job offers, everyone!
    I also got the call last week that i am going to be a Swedish RN in February on the nephrology floor on First Hill!
    I got the call last wednesday, but i have not gotten the official offer letter yet. looking forward to seeing it written down so it will feel real.

    uptotheskies,
    Thank you for your quick response and advice! They are trying to fill so many positions that it is not surprising that they have not gotten back to me yet. i will relax a bit now. Good luck everyone on your interviews! I look forward to hearing good news from you all.

    Hi everyone. I have been lurking on this thread for a bit and it has been incredibly helpful. I applied to the New to Acute Care Residency. I received an email to schedule an HR interview requesting my availability. I replied last wednesday but have not heard back yet. How long did everyone wait for responses from Swedish HR? I am just trying to figure out of this is normal to wait almost a week or if i should be calling. I don't want to seem pushy.
    Thanks!

    Hi!
    I just graduated from nursing school, ASN, on friday. The RN residencies in my area are so competative and I have not even gotten a call back from any of them. The light at the end of the tunnel is that I was offered a float RN position at the clinic where I work. I would be floating from DI, derm, endoscopy, urology, surgury center, infusion therapy and also a few phone triage positions. I have been told that once you go out patient, you can never get back into the hospital. I am wondering if having such a wide variety of experiences would allow me to break that mold. My office is so flexible that I can go Per-Diem next year to finish my BSN. I ultimately want to end up in a hospital. I am afraid that I am shooting myself in the foot by considering out-patient for two years. Can anyone advise me? Were you able to move from out-pt to acute care?

    Thank you so much!

    I seem to recall during the meet-and-greet them saying something about not being eligible to apply if you had an ADN-- You needed either a BSN or an MSN-- But I really dont think the MSN vs BSN matters-- it's unit time they want.
    That may depend on the preference of the hiring manager of your destination unit. My classmates went to the meet and greet and were told that ADNs were welcome to apply and many of their residents every year are ADNs. One of my ADN classmates just had her phone interview with them. Obviously, I am aware that BSN/MSN will have some preference, but it is not impossible for an ADN to get in. Just wanted to clear that up!

    Thanks for sharing your background. Good luck with the next interview!

    When you spoke to them, did they say they might hire external aplicants? Their website was pretty clear that non employees need not apply. I was going to apply anyway, but it would be good to know if you heard otherwise!

    Those of you that got a call, could you share your background? MSN/BSN/ADN?

    Nobody that I saw mentioned this but....Male homosexuals are more at risk because of the type of sex they have. The anal and rectal tissue itself is more delicate and has nore of a tendency to tear and bleed even at the microscopic level therefore increasing the risk if transmission immensely.
    gay men are not the only demographic that has anal sex.
