  1. Hi ALL, I am a new graduate nurse applying to georgetown university hospital in DC and was asked to do a career battery exam..Iv been reading other posts about it and it looks really hard to pass. Does anyone know how to do well on this or has anyone taken this for the new grad program? Any input would be awesome Im nervous because I really want to get into here!

    Never heard of it, but for your sake I hope it's nothing like PBDS.

    Agreed, PBDS exams are the worst.

    Hi connolkm, I've read that there is no way to really study for this battery exam. I took the test a week ago for GUH as well, and there is no way to tell if I passed it or not. They either will email/call for an invitation to their New Grad Day in Feb 2012. So, crossing my fingers that I hear a response. Good luck with yours!

    MSWATSON-- I just tok it last night..It seemed kind of ridiculous.. I feel like they are going to want a perfect score.. do you know how long we should wait to hear if we passed?

    connolkm, I really don't know how long we should wait. In the email from GUH, it says that we can check the status of our application in their website -- the same site where we placed our application. So yea, I hope others out there can post whether or not they've heard anything from GUH.

    what does your status say? mine just says resume is under review

    Yea, I got the same message. An email/call is what we really need to wait for. Hoping this works out for us.

    I got a rejection email today. I applied about a week ago.

    Ohh and is that when you took the battery exam..Im sorry to hear that. They said it was extremely hard to get into ( especially because of that stupid battery test) so I'm not holding my breath

    I also took that battery exam for another hospital and my job offer was revoked because I failed it. Good luck though. I hope you both passed.

    Ever since I started applying for positions, I've had nothing but rejection after rejection. This experience can be so disheartening that I didn't want to even look at another application site. So, I can honestly say that I know exactly how folks are feeling when the news is not good. As trite as it sounds, we need to hang in there...maybe, even take a break and do the app process in another time.

    Yes, I took the exam right after I applied. I haven't done one of these before, so it was good practice. Good luck to everyone else who applied!
