    Yes, I received the application packet and submitted it a few weeks ago. Have you been contacted for an interview yet?

    Did you receive the application packets before or after your phone interviews? Before your invitation to new grad day?
    Cristine - do you have any pointers for those of us who might go to new grad day? What should we expect? Any way to prepare for the interviews?

    Does anyone have experience or has anyone heard about the georgetown picu? I have experience with both peds heme/onc and picu and I'm looking to get back to picu in the DC area. Honestly I've heard bad things about every picu in the dc/baltimore area (minus hopkins, that place just seems impossible to get into!). Any input regarding georgetown would be quite helpful, esp from experienced nurses, thanks!

    As the mother (who happens to be an RN) of a frequent flyer of the GUH PICU/Transplant Unit, I think the staff nurses are great. They all do an exceptional job. We have been going there since 2006 and still see many of the same faces each time we are there.

    As a GUH nurse, my only possible "con" about the PICU would be that it seems like they are often emptier than many other hospital's with PICU's I've seen. Not uncommon for them to have less than 6pts. I know that PICU nurses do have to float to gen peds and NICU and you should ask if you interview how often they forsee this happening.

    Did you end up taking this position? I was just offered a job there and I am losing $6/hr on days and $8/hr on nights. I was also surprised by how the technology was not up to date in contrast with other places I have worked. Also, there's the requirement of rotating shifts which doesn't really appeal to me. What do you think?

    I'm relocating from NC and speaking with a nurse recruiter Monday! We've been playing phone tag for awhile lately...they seem really nice!!! I hope to at least get a interview there so I can see the hospital first hand! I have 4 years ICU experience!
