    yes, they do keep you very much in the dark! but did you call the recruiter? that seemed to help. i didn't hear anything for 3 weeks so I just kept calling and leaving messages and finally got a call back.

    Congrats to those who have panel interviews this week. Sometimes it only takes days to get a call back & sometimes it takes weeks. If you haven't heard anything yet don't give up. Until you have actually been told you didn't get the job keep calling & being persistent. Good luck to all!!

    Would you know the likelyhood of someone getting an offer after the second interview?

    not sure if my info is correct but one of the HR people I spoke with said they're interviewing maybe 80 people for hiring 40. sounds like a lot of new hires to me

    Honestly, your chances are pretty good especially if you had a good interview. My panel interview was not great but it wasn't terrible. I had a brain freeze when the last panelist asked questions. I was so focused on all the writing he was doing I lost my train of thought, lol I felt those few moments killed me & I barely completed my response. After that it ended on a better note with their responses to my questions but I wasn't sure if it was enough to overcome my temporary memory lapse.

    For those waiting for a call back for the panel interview or if its already scheduled, just be sharp & practice answering questions. All questions I was asked were similar to the HR interview. At this point you can't afford any slip ups like I had. Yes, they are hiring a good # of new grads but just think how many applicants they have. Good luck to you all & update us if you do or don't get offered a position.

    That sounds about right. I was told they would probably be hiring 30-40 people and for the summer about the same & possibly more depending on unit needs. For those who have yet to receive a call make sure you apply for the other clinical nurse residency that states "april/may graduates". I know someone who never got a call from HR after her 1st app but applied again for the summer & got a HR interview then. By time she got called for the panel interview (3-4 wks later) she had already accepted a position at another hospital. It may take longer than you'd like but keep trying!

    I have no idea how my interview went. Didn't seem bad but it was hard to tell. I had the video interview and I couldn't really see who was talking, all blurry. Just hope i didn't look weird on their side lol.
    I'm a little surprised they're not completely on EMRs. She said it's a mix of paper and computer, ug. And she said they're hiring for almost any unit. Good luck to everyone!

    Chelseafm almost any unit? Wow thats very good to hear! What units did you request to work in?

    Hey everyone! I'm looking to apply for the next round. Besides online application, are there any other requirements I will need to submit (i.e. Letters of Reference, Transcripts)? Is there a GPA requirement?

    Thanks!
