    Sassy & Kittybomb, How were you notified of phone interview times? I attended the Meet and Greet, applied and still haven't gotten a call. Hoping they're still scheduling interviews. Also, out of curiosity- do you have BSN degrees?

    Those of you that got a call, could you share your background? MSN/BSN/ADN?

    MBSeattle, Yes, the admin gal called me to set up an interview. Interview went well... Not hard... Just some HR questions and a few questions like, "why do you want to be a nurse, why do you want to do Peds," etc. The recruiter said they will be doing phone interviews until the end of the month, and then bringing people back for manager interviews the first couple weeks of June. Its my understanding that after phone interviews, the recruiter is going to forward people on to the managers & it will be up to them (the managers) to decide who gets an in-person interview.

    Grownupprosie, I have an MSN-- but I dont think that matters. At the meet-and-greet the manager I spoke with said she didnt care if someone had a BSN or an MSN-- what she was looking for was unit time in that specialty, ie preceptorship/internship. (I did over a year in my specialty-- 680 hours-- it was my home unit and I also did my final preceptorship there for my MSN clinical research project.) I seem to recall during the meet-and-greet them saying something about not being eligible to apply if you had an ADN-- You needed either a BSN or an MSN-- But I really dont think the MSN vs BSN matters-- it's unit time they want.

    Does anyone know exactly how the residency works? You rotate to different units for 12 weeks? I have a phone interview on Wed. and I'd love to know any extra info you might have about their residency.

    That may depend on the preference of the hiring manager of your destination unit. My classmates went to the meet and greet and were told that ADNs were welcome to apply and many of their residents every year are ADNs. One of my ADN classmates just had her phone interview with them. Obviously, I am aware that BSN/MSN will have some preference, but it is not impossible for an ADN to get in. Just wanted to clear that up!

    Thanks for sharing your background. Good luck with the next interview!
