I just applied for the Swedish Jan 2014 residency. Wondering if folks here also applied and whether you have heard back, or if you know the timeline for that.
I tried emailing the Swedish Residency email several times in the past few months to find out about the Meet/Greet but never heard back. Did anyone manage to attend? Or is this a secretive gathering for some selected few?
Please share your experiences and journeys!!

Hi delridge! I also applied. I heard that the residency is going to be accepting applications until November so it may take awhile to get any news. But please don't rely completely on this as I am not sure if this is true since it is just something I heard. I will do my best to post if I hear anything. I couldn't find anything on the "Meet and Greet" either which was unfortunate because I was hoping to attend. I know that my school received an email about the residency meeting in spring 2013 but I am not sure if my school received one for the fall meeting. I think Swedish had a meeting this fall, but didn't make a big announcement. Wishing you well with your application!

I spoke to someone in HR a couple weeks before the applications came out, and they said there is likely no meet and greet for the January cohort unfortunately. They have already started phone interviews. I also heard interviews are likely going to be in November. Good luck everyone!

Does anyone know of what units will be hiring residents, and if so what units have more openings?

Hi MontanaRed, I know the openings are ICU, gen med, gen surg, GYN, ortho, neuro, L&D, ED, tele, oncology, short stay, behavioral health, nephro, and PCU. I am not sure what units have more openings though....I wish I knew too.

I've also applied but have not heard anything yet. I know they have contacted applications for phone interviews.

I recently received a phone call from Swedish HR saying that they would like to set up a phone interview with a nurse recruiter. Anybody have any experience with this? Any interview questions that you can share?
Thanks so much!

HR will be doing phone interviews until early November, and interviews with nurse managers will be the first 2 weeks of December if anyone wanted to know.

They scheduled my phone interview fairly late in November on the 20th.
Those with phone interviews, care to share your top 2 unit choices?
I want to go with women's health and still deciding between gyn surgical, L&D and postpartum.
Good luck to everyone!
