Cook Children's Pediatric Nurse Residency 2013

  1. 0
    Hiya all!

    First time poster, long time lurker.



    So, I will soon be graduating in May of this year (2013) with my BSN and have an opportunity to interview for the CCMC Pediatric Nurse Residency.


    Does anyone who has interviewed for this program have any helpful hints/tips/suggestions for an interviewee? Expectations/preparation/comments/anything and everything?

    I'm all ears for any general tips for an interview as well.



    Thanks in advance!

    I do not know anything about cooks. But have you looked into children's in Dallas. Their program is great and you will get a lot of experience.

    have you heard anything from Cook Children's after interview or know of anybody who has?

    We're officially supposed to know today whether we got the job or not (getting called= job, getting email=better luck next time). But I know of some people who got called this past Tuesday (March 18). So my automatic, worst-case-scenario conclusion is that they called everyone who got the job on Tuesday and let everyone else suffer and wait until sometime today.

    Hi guys! I'm graduating with my BSN in August and I'm hoping to apply for the September Residency. Can any of you tell me anything about the application process and interview? I just recently finished my pedi clinical rotation at school and have absolutely fallen in love with it and I've been furiously researching potential jobs since then. I read in the CCMC newsletter from 2009 that they have 15 spots for each cohort and 80 applicants. I'm guessing it's gotten more competitive since then, so if anyone has any advice as to what could give me an edge, I'd be more than grateful!

    Hi! Did you ever apply for the September cohort? Any luck? Are you sure about the 15 spots? I'd heard it's grown since then.

    Hi guys! Has anyone who applied for the September cohort heard anything yet? I know that with previous cohorts, they made calls the Friday of interview week (ie. a week before the notification deadline) but maybe this year they are waiting? Just curious! Thank you

    I haven't heard anything yet either. Please let me know if you hear anything else.
    @Jooliaghoulia, I know for sure that there's only 15 spots, one of the current nurse residents mentioned it to me during the tour. However, this is the first year that their doing a September cohort, so its smaller than the June cohort, which had about 25 spots.

    @cass1320, I will absolutely let you know if I hear anything - please do the same! Also, I didn't realize there were only 15 spots. Thank you for the information and good luck! Fingers crossed for both of us!
