    I'm just saying it doesn't hurt to apply. I'm pretty confident I have a shot, graduating with a BSN from the University of Michigan. But I am also keeping my options open. All I know is I want to get out of Michigan and see what else is out there. Sending my app in tomorrow! Good luck everyone.
    I hear ya. Just an FYI, I've heard that certain areas of Texas have been readily accepting new grads. Not sure if that's somewhere you would want to be, but it's an option. I've lived in RI most of my life and am terrified to graduate next May and not find a job, with our current 13% unemployment rate.

    Unfortunately I think what you're saying is true. I have had ADN nurses at my clinical sites telling me that I made the right choice, because the job market is so competitive right now. It has taken some extra time, but I know that the BSN will be worth it when I'm graduating next year. Is it too late for you to switch?

    Hey everyone! For those of you who HAVE applied for the RIH Critical Care Internship Program, I have a very silly question to ask....

    Where is this darn application!!?? I see that they require
    1) A letter of interest
    2) Resume
    3) Official Transcript
    4) Two references from clinical instructors

    But where the heck are they hiding the actual application to download and fill out. I have been having the toughest time searching all over...but then maybe I thought, there is no formal application to fill out. I find this hard to believe, but maybe this is the case.

    It figured it would be less embarrasing asking you all, my fellow RN's, instead of calling up the HR department....

    Would anyone care to help?
    =)

    I know this is a competative program, and if there is an application many of you probably don't want to give it to me, but what's life without a little friendly competition!!?

    Quick question to anyone who has applied, or is applying to this program,

    The application asks to include a "list of references" then goes on to say, "Two references from clinical instructors". Does anyone know if they want just a list of reference contact info, or actual letters of recommendation? With a program this competitive, I feel like any mistake I make on the application process will get me automatically tossed into the "no" pile, which I would definitely like to avoid.

    I called HR to ask, and left a message, but nobody has gotten back to me yet.

    Good luck everyone! And thanks in advance for any information.

    13% unemployment rate won't scare the U of M BSN student. I just moved from Michigan to Connecticut. Michigan peaked at over 15%. At least we lead the nation in something!

    I am almost 100% sure that all you need is 2 written references from clinical instructors. Almost certain...

    Good luck.

    You need two letters of recommendation from professors/clinical instructors and a letter of recommendation from your clinical/department manager. It would be nice if you could get the two letters from clinical areas that are really relevant to the unit your trying to work on if that is possible or from clinical professors who are in the same area of specialty of interest. In my case I am trying to apply for the Pediatric ER where I work now so I am getting clinical letters of recommendation from my Maternity Professor (a NICU Nurse Practitioner) and from my Psych. Professor (a Peds. Psych. Clinical Nurse Specialist) both of which are positions that I am really interested in and might ultimately want to pursue.

    Yikes that is awful. Not trying to scare anyone.... I am actually the one who is terrified of not getting a job, after all of this work.
