Anyone out there get a call for an interview for UNC's New Grad program for the Fall. I interview on Tuesday and am both excited and nervous!

Hey there! I applied for the program but I haven't heard anything back. Hopefully I will. What units did you apply for/going in to interview for? Good luck with the interview!!

I have an interview in both the PICU and the 6 Womens (GYN/ONC). I graduated from a BSN program in March in Phoenix. We relocated out here in January and I had to go back and forth for two months to finish up Capstone.
Haven't had much luck with any of the hospitals thus far, but hoping that one of these will work out for me!

If you don't mind me asking did you have prior experience in the units you applied for? Such as senior preceptor-ship? Good luck on the interviews I hope everything works out!

Thank you! My preceptorship was on a Med/Oncology floor. I was mainly on the Onc floor during pediatrics also... So no real experience in the actual units interviewing for.

How did the interviews go?

I think they went well...but it's really hard to say. It was a long day and by the last one I had a hard time thinking of situations to answer the questions. Now I wait...hopefully not too long though!

What school did you graduate from? I just graduated from ASU on the 5th and I am moving to Greensboro for a job I was offered out there. Did you apply for your license immediately in NC? If so how long did it take from when you sent your transcripts until they showed online as received and until you got your authorization to take the NCLEX?

I don't know if your talking to me but I graduated from University of Toledo in Ohio and applied for endorsement for NC license in July before I even moved to NC. Received my temporary license pretty fast within a week or two of turning in all my paperwork. Then received my licenses later on in the month. I wouldn't know how long it takes to directly apply to take the NCLEX in the state. I know that my instructors also said that it's quicker to apply to take the NCLEX in your home state and then just endorse but I'm not sure.

my advice....what i did, which is kinda bold, but when i knew all my friends were getting interviews i called up there and asked when my interviews were. with new grads everyone basically looks the same on paper, if you call them you might stand out some, and there are definitely some units at unc that are real short handed. i say give them a call, the old fashion way. or if you know the unit you want to work on, find out who the nurse manager is and call thatindividual directly, then you will really stand out. good luck y'all

@Ready2Help....have you heard back with results for your interviews? I just had my interview today with the 7 Children's Pediatric Surgery Unit. I really enjoyed myself and I hope it went well but I know they only have one position open and are still finishing up interviews. So hopefully they like me enough and I stood out enough to be selected. But overall I thought the interviews with the nurse recruiter, nurse manager and assistant manger was pretty much similar. I was give the opportunity to tour the unit and speak to one of the staff nurse which I thought was absolutely wonderful. Anyways if I get this position the start date is in October. I was just wondering if you received an offer and if you started already.
