I just mailed off my packet to Vanderbilt today! I'm so nervous and really hoping to get an interview for this program. Adult Critical Care is my first choice. I graduated in May 2012 with my BSN from Washington State... Read More

    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 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.

    I got an interview for the ED track and will be flying out there mid October. I'm super excited; however, at the same time I know I will be sad to leave CO if I get it and the hospital I work at now, but I know it would be worth it. Anyways, to answer a former post I graduated from Colorado State University- Pueblo in the accelerated nursing program.
