- 1Oct 18, '12 by missy32Has anyone heard from Temple, the waiting is killing me. I think if things work out and I get a job at Temple I just might actually run up and down the street yelling, because I'm so happy. For the people that got hired in the last new to practice round, how are things going and what units are you working on.
- 0Oct 25, '12 by ea.arnoldI am so happy to have found this discussion about the n2p program. I applied oct 6 and am in the same boat that you are in. I called HR today and they said I just have to wait for a reply! From the other posts of earlier applicants, it seems as though they waited 2-3 weeks. It will be soon now I think.

- 0Oct 25, '12 by missy32It's great to hear from someone currently in the ntp program, What unit are you on? Temple is my dream place to work for, for sure. Did you have prior experience in the medical field jek456? I hope to at least have a shot at a job there. How do you like working there so far? Sorry for all the questions.
- 0Oct 27, '12 by TUNikyRNHello new to practice prospects. My advice is to be patient but assertive! I know they are somewhat opposite but Temple can take a while to do things that are usually not as much of a wait!
I am one of the new to practice nurses that was given the amazing opportunity in this new program and I love it!! So my advice be persistent but understanding and hang in there! I love Temple so far!! Good luck to everyone!!
- 0Oct 30, '12 by Isitpossiblei applied as well. dying to hear but will be patient, as the deadline was 10/26... so i assume they have to wade thru the applicants before even contacting applicants... which im sure is alot of applicants!! im hoping by Nov 10th or so to hear... if anyone hears please let us know...
