    Alymoore87, I have worked with children for six years (4.5 years at Boston Children's). I wouldn't stand a chance applying to anything other than peds with my background. Peds is the only population I want to work with but it's actually been impossible to apply to anything but peds which limits my options. I have volunteer experience with children's relief for 3 years also!

    alymoore87 I did not have volunteer experience in a hospital setting, but have worked as a Nursing Assistant for 5 years, and had an externship with adult Hem/Onc/BMT. I did have extensive volunteer experience in other areas, just not in a hospital setting.

    Hey all!

    It's nice to see all the action on the thread! I have an interview for Adult Critical Care. Are all of you planning on flying down for your interview?

    Hi everyone, this is my first post on All Nurses, but I read a lot of their threads. I applied to the VUMC nurse residency program and received an email today to set up an interview. I applied for the Peds track. I live in Massachusetts. I understand where you are all coming from- the job market is awful, and the competition is fierce. I have (luckily) been on 4 interviews since graduation in May, but was not chosen for two of the positions, and am still waiting to hear back from the other two. One of the opportunities I interviewed for, they were interviewing 50 candidates for 5 spots. Its tough out there! Good luck!

    Hi everyone, I got an email today about scheduling an interview for the ED track. I live in Colorado and really would like to do the skype interview; however, in the email it says there preference is on-site interview. So I sort of feel like by doing the skype thing, it already puts you at a disadvantage. So I am planning I think on flying. What are the rest of you doing that have been offered an interview?

    I heard that they make there decisions beginning of December, but like I said I HEARD that. Not sure if it is legit or not

    I am planning on flying down for my interview. I'm hoping to have something scheduled for the second week of October, but we'll see how that works out.

    Well, I don't know what to think about being on the wait list for peds. I thought for sure that I would at least get an interview.
    I graduated in April, with my BSN from MI, and recently moved to TN. My dream job is to work with children with cystic fibrosis and other pulmonary issues. I guess that I will start sending my resume to specific contacts at Vanderbilt and be optimistic that I will land a career.
