Hi. I applied for Temple's New to Practice Program a few weeks ago and just received word that my initial application was accepted. In the FAQ's, it says that applicants will have to take competency exams after they are selected.... Read More

    Congratulations morningdew!!!!!! This is a big accomplishment.
    I have my interview on the 30th, I guess because I completed my tests at the last minute!!
    Anyway, I am preparing hard for this interview. I already pick my units, but most of them are terrific, so I do not care if I do not have the ones i selected. The most important for me now is to pass the interview.
    According to what you said, we have only one interview and you just wait to be or not to be hired?? I thought we had two interviews, one was the panel and the second with the nurse manager. I guess that it's only one interview?
    How many people is in the panel? Do you interview alone or with other applicants at the same time?

    If you can share this info, i'll be more than happy!!!

    Again, Congratulations!

    MorningDew I was hired as well and also unaware of the unit. I did give my preference on units and said I would accept outside these (though not maternity its just not me!) I look forward to meeting yoU!

    One interview with a panel.

    I had three two of which were nurse managers and the third for me was the director of the program. (Friends of mine had a different panel) You interview alone. When you come in to the HR office there are several applicants and they bring you back one at a time (I went to the 7th floor immediately but a friend of mine waited an hour-ish)

    The questions while I don't remember specifics were not difficult. Straight forward. They did a wonderful job at keeping my stress level down.

    Congratulations BrianaN! And good luck on your interview Monday dbassi, the panel that I interviewed with was very nice and engaging, they relaxed my nerves. The Nurse recruiter is also very nice.

    Can't wait to find out when we start and what unit...I'm nervous/scared but really happy. I think this program is probably one of the best ways to make the transition from nursing student to RN.
