Hello Everyone! I have recently interviewed for the ED/NICU/PICU Fellowship at NSLIJ and I wanted to get some feedback about the program from past or recent nurses in the same program. Also, it... Read More

    Nessa0387, I hate to be the one to tell you but i wouldn't expect any phone call with a associates. I was at a job fair and overheard a recruiter from mount sinai tell a ad nurse that she may as well flush her degree down the toilet BC its useless. I don't mean to be mean but I think you need to stop deluding yourself that you will even get a interview for this fellowship or for any hospital located in the metro NY or long island area. Unless your parents own a hospital you aren't get a job in a hospital. Whatever sugar coated lies people told you about getting a Job In NY with a associates is a lie. BSN new grads can barely get a job. Do yourself a big favor and smell reality. Enroll in a very good RN to BSN program and not some crappy online one and get your bachelors. I honestly am not saying it to be mean or rude but I feel like someone needs to tell you the truth.

    Lvu201 the program is very hard and she told me even after almost a year there she still feels quite useless and unknowledgable. Once she was finished orientation and got switched to nights the other nurses were great and really wanted to help her BC they too were once in the fellowship. And don't think that just because you got a spot in the fellowship means you can relax..... In January they fired some of her cohorts! And be prepared for lots of studying.

    NycRN92, No one has sugar coated anything about getting a job, I know it will be extremely difficult to get calls/interviews with an associates degree but I refuse to have a negative attitude about the situation. Who knows what will happen with this fellowship or any other position I've applied to. They said they do consider associate degree nurses when I called HR so I applied. My application can be in the garbage or at the bottom of their list but all I care is that I tried. Two of my friends got interviews with nyc hospitals with them being new grad AD nurses and one got offered a position. I will continue to apply to fellowships and every other position that doesn't say bsn required and see where it takes me. In the meanwhile I am enrolled in a rn-bsn program and will be done next year.

    Education is never a waste... Keep at it. I work F/T and I know many of my friends that have graduated with an ADN also work.. not everyone needs to work in a hospital either. Don't give up! You made it through nursing school, you can make it through this!

    I had my initial HR interview for the LIJ PICU fellowship... The questions weren't complicated, just background and some behavioral ones: most complicated patient, customer service experience, and a time when you had to speak up to someone superior (or something like that). I didn't get a really good vibe from the place, and I usually have pretty good intuition. (Plus I live super far from the place so I'm thinking of considering more options closer to home.) But I always remain optimistic.

    For those who are asking about the background of interview candidates, I graduated with a BSN (accelerated program), was licensed last year, and have been volunteering for several months at NYP/Columbia. It was actually the chief of the division I'm volunteering on who recommended me for the fellowship, which is how my hat got thrown in the ring. Good luck everyone!

    I'm really interested in this program. I applied but never heard back from anybody? I got a bsn, graduated with a 4.0, was the secretary of my SNA chapter, graduated on april 16, passed my boards on may 16 in 75 questions, was a winner of a scholarship, already have bls, ascles, and pals, but they still have not contacted me. Do I need to go volunteer or something. I thought my resume looked really attractive, am i missing something?

    So I had responded to this by saying that I refuse to be negative about being an associate degree new grad nurse and I knew it would be difficult to find a job but I was not going to give up. Well after two months of applying and no calls, I got an interview and was hired in NYC hospital in their NICU! It is my dream job!! I just want to let other AD new grads know that your degree is not a waste. It may be difficult to find a job and it may take some time to hear back from positions you applied to but don't get discouraged and definitely don't let other people bring you down. To all those who applied to this fellowship try to stay positive but if it doesn't work out keep applying to other openings. Someone will call you!

    I applied on the North Shore LIJ website. I was watching it like a hawk and as soon as it went up I applied. It's down now, but they will have other ones coming in the fall I think. So keep an eye on the website! Search for any new grad positions and opportunity because sometimes it is posted as fellowship or new grad opportunity. Good luck!
    Congratulations!!! Do you like the fellowship?
