    How do you think you did? anyway I wish you best of luck. Do you know if they are still calling applicants for interview?

    Honestly, I couldn't really tell. It wasn't great but wasn't terrible. I wasn't nervous until I got there, lol There were 4 people & they all asked a couple questions but they spent the majority of the time writing & would occasionally look up, smile, & nod as I was talking. I made it this far so I am praying I will get offered a position. Since the job posting is still open I'm sure they are still seeking candidates. There were a few people that interviewed before me & there were 3 more listed after me when I glanced at the list when I checked in to HR. I am pretty sure applicants are still being called for interviews.

    Start dates are March 11th & 25th also April 8th & 22nd. I was asked about any areas of interest & shift preference & was told they try to match up preferences if positions are available there. Needs are still being assessed everywhere so they could not give me specific details as to the number of people going to be hired & which units are available.

    I had an interesting experience with this a couple years ago when I was in all of your shoes (except for the summer cohort, not spring). I applied there, but they were dragging their feet with that summer's cohort. By the time they called me for my first interview in April, I was within 2 weeks of having to reply to an offer 1500 miles away. I went through with the interviews, but accepted the other job a couple days later. I got a call from MDA in July (2.5 months after my interview and a couple weeks into my new job) saying that they were interested in hiring me.

    It all worked out in the end for me, but MDA really dragged their feet that year. I don't blame them though, there is A LOT to coordinate for all of those units and a bunch of newbie nurses. My head would explode from trying to organize all of it. Maybe I'll come back to TX and work at MDA some day and see that each and every one of you got the jobs you were hoping and praying for.

    I have heard similar stories from previous applicants. From what a few current employees have said, the application process is slowly improving. From application submission to receiving an interview appears to be happening in a few days to a few weeks. It's the waiting game after the interviews that seems to take the most time. Everyone keep your fingers crossed & have faith

    On the website it says BSN preferred. Is anyone applying with just an ADN?

    ug, still waiting... I called the recruiter twice last week and left messages but no call back. I guess I'll call again. My application still says "under consideration" so I guess that's a good thing.
    Out of state applicants: Do you know how the interview process works for us? Can they do a skype kind of thing or do we need to come in person?
    The girl I spoke with (Ann) said interviews last about a week so I thought they would have called me back already. Or maybe I bombed the phone screening haha

    I have a BSN..not sure about any of the other applicants for this cohort but I know someone that currently works there that went thru the residency program 2 yrs ago who was hired with only an ADN. She did the RN-BSN program at my school & we graduated in Dec '12. I think now they are requiring those with an ADN to get a BSN within 3yrs of hire.
