have anyone heard back from St. David's new grads program?

U.S.A. Texas


I know some people say St. David's doesn't repsonse to applicants as fast as Seton do but..it has been two weeks since I sent my online application. Does anyone hear back from them? should I just call them instead?

so frustrated...never end job hunting..:cry:

I think it depends. Did you contact them to stay on their list? If so, I wouldn't do anything. It seems like they are keeping all the old applications on file. Unfortunately, that means the competition is going to be that much stronger for the December program. I just applied for that GN posting you referred to. I don't think I will hear anything back, but you never know. I know someone who graduated in May and started in L&D right off the bat. Guess she was one of the lucky ones.

Good luck and let us know if you hear anything.

Yes i did reply to them saying i was still interested but no one has called at all so i reapplied to the program again!!

Unfortunately, I received a mass email from St.David's about the Winter 2009 GN job posting. It looks like they are not looking to hire any new grads at this time. I wonder why they even posted the position in the first place.

I have pretty much given up on finding a NICU job in Austin. Seton said they have been bombarded with applications since opening the versant listing. Guess I'll be relocating..

Hi, I am applying to the Seton Versant program in December for the July cohort. I was wondering if you guys know what Seton is looking for, previous experience, high GPA? What's the difference between the people who get in and the people who don't?

Seton is looking for at least a 3.0. It seemed to me, after hearing 2 recruiters talk within a few days of each other, that they want to see all 3 of your choices be Med-Surg on the application. I heard this point stressed on numerous occasions by the recruiters. No NICU, ER, mother/baby, or ICU are hiring new grads for the February cohort. They will also make you stay on your original unit for 2 years before allowing a transfer into a specialty. The recruiter for Brackenridge said that working as a CA for the Seton network does not give you an advantage over anyone else.

I will be interested to see which of my classmates get interviews. They will begin interviewing in November.

I have applied to St. Davids and they still maintain that they are not hiring GNs although I have witnessed students that are techs there recieve interviews. Seton's Versant has maintained that they will not have specialty positions available but will have some Med/ Surg positions. Still havent heard back from Seton. I know they are still behind on collecting Versant packets that were faxed a month ago. Good luck everyone!!
