Nurse Residencies in Dallas February 2018 - page 4

    Wow! Literally, about 5 minutes after I made that post I got an interview invite for Harris Methodist for the Neuro ICU which is my dream job! It's like they heard me or something. I thought about just taking the Denton job, but I would feel bad if they sent out rejection letters to those other candidates and then I didn't end up taking the position. Shelby, if you look in your email from the THR applications, there is a link to a site where you can check the status of your application. I watched mine change from "reviewing" to "selected for interview" and then about a minute later I got the preference form and the interview invite in 2 separate emails. Sometimes that link to check your status can be kinda wonky and you have to fill out this little form first to get to the page that will allow you to login. I bookmarked it so now I'm constantly looking on there for changes, lol.

    When you get rejected from a position or it is "filled, it automatically sends an email to you saying so and if you go online to your submissions section the positin will say filled.

    I have interview for Medical City next week. Waiting on another response from THR. With THR, they said once they get enough applicants for the each job posting they take the position down so other people can no longer apply. They said in their info sessions on Facebook to apply early for that reason, they operate on a "first come, first serve basis" in a way when it comes to applying. All the ED positions came down after a couple days of the applications opening on Sep 30. I applied for ED for Dallas, Arlington, Plano, and Ft Worth. The ED position for Arlington is still up on their site though looks like.

    I applied for Methodist too, no response yet. Also, Parkland recruiter told me that their positions for Jan/Feb start have not been opened yet. They said they won't open until end October/Beginning of November. I asked about the nurse resident positions they have posted right now on their site and she said that those are for Fall Start coming up.

    Good luck on your interview tomorrow!

    Congrats Amemtrn17! A tough decision for sure, but as tough decisions go I think this is a great dilemma to be faced with!

    Oh, and THR reposted the Arlington ED position if anyone is still interested! They had taken them all down, but I noticed that that location was back up today

    Congrats to everyone on the job offers so far! And, it might be tough deciding what you want to do but make the right decision for you and follow what you really want to do!

    Yeah the arlington one is back up, maybe some candidates withdrew their applications or more positions become open in that unit that needed to be filled. Most all of my positions for the Dallas and Ft worth locations of THR have moved to application in review. I'm really going for womens, ED is my second choice. So since you got a interview invite today, hopefully, fingers crossed, I'll get one this week too!

    @keunnamonae that makes sense because I started the ED Plano THR app on Oct 2nd and when I went back to complete it the next day, it was gone. I wish I had known it was first come first serve earlier but that's okay, I guess it wasn't meant for me.

    Does anyone have interview advice for JPS or know what their ER pay rate is? Baylor starts GNs out at $25/hour which I think is the lowest in the system.
  7. by   keunnamonae
    That what medical city is also, $25.05/hour but that only after you have been there 3 months. During the 3 months, you get a stipend of $1,000 every two weeks. So it good maybe not the best but it good. Idk about THR, but parkland I think pays $27.

    But, how did interview go? And did you make a decision about Baylor?

    @sleepynurseZZZ When is your THR interview going to be? And did you decide on your medical city offer?

    I applied to THR about 17 of them that involved some kind of ICU, CC, and PCU. I currently have 2 that are "under review" 1 that has been rejected but the rest still read "considering". Does anyone know exactly how they decide who to interview is there something that they are "looking" for in particular. I also had applied to JPS but was rejected the next day come to find out it was because i have LVN experience and but not enough hospital experience. I do have 3 applications in a Methodist does anyone know when they actually start interviews because its been about 3 weeks and still is in the active review state. I also have 1 under review at Parkand for MICU.

    For THR- They look at everything, the essay you wrote, work and clinical experience, GPA, well rounded candidate (in organizations, volunteer work, etc). It just not one particular thing, they also use the preference form as a guide to place you in the right position for you or for your intended career path. They should start sending invites this week, I think Ft. Worth is the first location they are doing interviews for from what I have seen. They send invites to interview like a week or more in advance and they interview by location not specialty. For each open position on a unit they interview about 5-7 candidates. They interview from Oct 24- Nov 17.

    I don't know when methodist or parkland starts, I don't even think either one of them have put up all their open positions yet either. parkland told me they put the positions up as they become available, whatever that means. And methodist said it should be middle of october. So if they haven't even got all the positions up, then who knows when they will start interviewing. But I know Parkland is usually pretty slow.

    I was told the same thing from Parkland, guess thats why one of mine has been sitting there looking at me since last month lol, I did apply for a few with Methodist but it is a very slow progression like one is in the active part has been for about 3 weeks. Really do hope that out of all the ones applied for THR that I can match up with something, I have a few in at Fort Worth, Arlington, Dallas, Plano, Cleburne. Did you apply to any of the specialities offered?
  12. by   keunnamonae
    Yeah I wouldn't start worrying about hearing from methodist and parkland until end of the month or early november honestly. And I am sure will match up with something! I have some at all those locations too. And I applied mostly for women's positions, which is what my first preference is. I have a couple ED (my second choice), and med surg (which is my last resort).
