    Hi! How long ago did you apply? I just started looking at new grad programs. I went to undergrad in Bristol, RI and I am on my 2nd undergrad for nursing in NY but would like to move back to RI. Are you from RI?
    Can you tell me anything you know about the RIH CC's internship as well?
    Who did you call or email? I cannot find anything on their website! Can you message me their phone number or email if possible?! Thank you so much.

    I am also wondering about that program. I emailed today to find out if they would need any other information (transcripts, LOR, cover letter) and the recruiter said that they only needed applicants to complete the online application at this time. Wondering if out of staters have a shot at getting a spot...

    I wonder how many applicants they are interviewing, and how many they are taking....I emailed and they said they are choosing "shortly"....Joella are you located around Newport? Interested in studying for NCLEX at all?

    I wonder what she means by shortly and if they have already interviewed anyone...Did she tell you this yesterday? Perhaps they are choosing internally..ugh! I have not even moved to RI yet. I am still in VA and taking the NCLEX the second week in Jan...I am holding out on moving bc I am not sure if I am going to be working in CT or RI...Still just waiting to see what if anything at all happens with employment up that way.

    Yes it was 12/28 that she emailed back. The job now says not taking any more applicants, so they must be looking over applications now. Does your lifespan account say anything about your application being under review? or does it just say application received? She did tell me the program started at the end of January. Bummer, I really need someone to study with. Good luck!

    Congrats RInursey!
    What do you think helped you stand out from the crowd? Did they say they had a lot of applicants?

    Thank You! I am beyond excited, and actually in shock! I started getting in touch with HR about a month ago and kept in contact with them, really expressing how interested I was. Finally, I was called for an interview, and prepared a lot for it. I practiced questions, wore a professional "suit", had questions ready etc.. I also made sure they knew I would be in this area long-term, because I went to college in PA (the interview was actually a lot more laid back then I anticipated)...HR said they had around 60 or so applications, interviewed 15, and accepted 7...So, I am truly honored, and really think this will be a great learning oppurtunity! Here is more info: If you have anymore questions I will know more after the 31st so hopefully I can help you out! Good luck with your last semester!
