    Are you doing the GN program. I have an interview there in January for the med surg floor. How is the group interview?

    It's not bad. Come prepared with questions. They ask you the typically questions an give a detail information about the GN program. You will get called back for an interview if they like you. At the 2nd interview you meet with the manager. Yes I will be doing the GN program

    Did you have clinical there or work at the hospital prior? I'm just trying to see what my chances are because I didn't work there or have clinical.

    At Lehigh Valley, are you still considered a GN if you have your license but never worked?

    Hi everyone! I am going for a group interview for the summer 2013 cohort. I was wondering, for those that have already been accepted, what were your resumes like? Did you have a high GPA, an externship, work experience? I just want an idea of what they are looking for and how I compare, if it isn't too personal. Also, is it hard to get the ICU?

    k1569, Have you had your group interview yet? It sounds like you are ahead of the ball, which is good since they fill internship spots on a first-come, first-served basis. At your group interview, they will tell you what positions are available, and ask each candidate where they would like to interview, based on who submitted their application first.

    If you are accepted into the critical care internship, you may get displaced to a different ICU or into the critical care float pool at the end of the internship, based on staffing needs.

    Hello! Just wondering if leHigh hires out of state new grad nurses for their residencies? Also, what is the pay rate?

    Thanks!
