    This is the second cohort I have applied for since I am under 6 mo. experience. This time I'm a little bit closer than the first. Just got an e-mail that I am on the interview wait list. Better than no chance at all but not getting my hopes up.
    Congratulations! That's still good!

    I got an e-mail today for an interview for either October or November. AScottRN11, I hope you get moved from wait list to actual interview. Don't lose hope!

    I just got an email about scheduling an interview for adult critical care. Good luck to everyone!!!

    For those that got an email saying how many people applied....what did it say?

Our applicant received pool produced 364 candidates representing 44 states and DC. Our candidates represented 171 nursing programs, 120 RN’s, with 75% BSN candidates."--What the email said!!

    That's all it said? How bizarre

    Haha, no that is not all it said. However, it was VERY vague. I am guessing from the "Best regards" at the bottom of the email, I did not receive an interview. I am kind of upset about it but know that there probably are better candidates out there. Congrats to those of you who received interviews!!

    That is very vague! Don't give up hope... I know it's tough out there. I myself have been applying for months now and I'm finally getting interviews. Have you looked into TX and NC? I've found some jobs there off and on every few weeks or so. Good luck!

    I'm confused? So they had 643 or 364 applicants? What a strange email!
  10. by   Britt7
    I would guess they had 643 inquiries...perhaps initial online applications and 364 fully completed packet applications?
  11. by   nervouswreck11
    That is what I am thinking as well Britt77!! I know I applied online last cohort but never really turned in an application.

    Thanks Zippy7!! I actually accepted a position on a medical/surgical floor last week at Baptist Hospital here in Nashville. I loved working at Vanderbilt Children's as an extern during for 15 months which is why I was hoping to get an interview for the peds track. But hey, I start at Baptist next week so I am okay with how things turned out! Good luck to you!!

    Thanks for the support...trying to look optimistic but not get my hopes up. Especially since this is my second time around but I've never wanted anything more in my life!

    To those who got that vague e-mail, that is very strange to me because when I wasn't selected for an interview last time, it was very forward in saying they have chose to interview other people. It doesn't hurt to e-mail Tracy and ask.
