  1. Unethical hiring practices
    They implied that we could work in another unit. However, there are no positions open in the other units and they can't just move us over there. So until something opens up, we're S.O.L. And once...

  2. Unethical hiring practices
    Thanks for the good luck. I'm just wondering why they hire new grads into these positions if they're just going to turn around and dismiss us in high proportions. I know you don't know the answer, I...

  3. Unethical hiring practices
    Unfortunately for me, there are no other positions in other units. And if they'd told me that this was on a trial basis, I wouldn't have moved. When I write "sea legs" I don't mean that I was...

  4. Unethical hiring practices
    Has anyone ever heard of anything like this? I am a new grad, and was recently hired in the CVICU, which claims to have a training program for new grads as well as floor nurses making the switch...

  6. Legacy Versant RN Residency - who's applying for this round?
    Thanks Av03. I don't expect it to go anywhere. It was a mediocre interview. Good luck to you as well, I know you really want it and went the extra mile (or hundreds of miles) for the interview.

  7. Legacy Versant RN Residency - who's applying for this round?
    I think it'll probably be at least another week. I just had a phone screening interview yesterday, and it sounded as if they still have a number of phone interviews to go.

  8. Scripps New Grad Nurse Residency 2013
    Thirty more hours, peppered. We'll know for sure by then. I've already decided I did not get it, but that's mostly so I don't make myself crazy in the next day. Nice meeting you, by the way,...

  9. Scripps New Grad Nurse Residency 2013
    Ayayayay, I just realized that both of the thank-you notes I sent the managers (I only interviewed with two) bounced back. I resent them just now, trying to guess what their email addresses are....

    I'm guessing there's no real system. They're probably doing it as the unit managers make their decisions and pass the word along. For those who have gotten calls: are the calls coming from the...

    I think you went in at 12:30. I was a few minutes after you. I finished at 1:11. Only two people on my panel, which bums me out slightly since I think that may decrease my chances.

    Thanks Av03. Are you in process for both Scripps and Versant Legacy as well? I applied for my license in CA about a month ago, and for OR last week (but only just sent in the fingerprint card...

    So it sounds like the people on the panel will be the ones making the decision. Hmmm.... Good to know, though I don't know quite exactly what to do with that information. Try to make them fall in...

    Thanks again. Did they say anything about the process? What I mean is, do they score your answers then put everything in one big pool, and decide from there? ...OR are the managers at your table...

    Hey peppered, I'm interviewing on the same day/time. Do you think this means group interviews? Or simultaneous interviews? Group interviews is kind of a weird idea, but I've been in them before so...

  22. New entry-level Masters program at U of A!!
    I really can't speak to that, and don't know much about that program. From what I understand, since it's basically a first-degree bachelor's program you'd have to transfer your undergrad credits, and...
