    Hi all, Congratulations to those of you who were accepted into the various residency programs that have been discussed throughout this thread!!

    I'll be graduating from nursing school in May of 2011. Could anyone out there tell me how they found out about the RN residency programs at UCSF? I've been looking around their website, but I don't see any information. I'd like to contact the nurse recruiter about this and any shadowing opportunities (did anyone do this at UCSF or other Bay area hospitals?), but I do not see contact information for him/her. I do see Nursing Administration Office general contact information. Is that where you started?

    When you log into their system you can set up a notification agent that sends search results to your email based on whatever criteria you choose. I've never heard of a hospital allowing "shadowing" unless it was part of a clinical experience thru school. Good luck with that tho.

    HI is it really hard to get a job offer from UCSF in their ER dept? Also, can you transfer from UC San Diego Med Center or for example UC Irvine, or UC Davis to the ER at the Medical Center? Please let me know?

    Hi everyone. Has anyone been through the Stanford Panel interview? What is it like? I have my panel interview next week and I have no idea what to expect. Does anyone have any advice or suggestions on how to prepare for the interview? Are there more clinical scenarios questions vs behavioral questions? This is my first panel interview and I just want to be prepared. Thanks!

    Quote from linRdsNay
    ^ I agree. Right now many of the new grad programs are requiring that you have at least a BSN to be eligible for the program. I have a feeling as things start to turn around and new grads are hired more and more, that those restrictions will loosen up again. Although, there are some hospitals that are phasing out the hiring of ADN nurses, but i don't know how long that will last...
    This is a really old post, but I think that the reason some hospitals aren't hiring ADNs as much anymore (or at least ADNs who don't have a plan in place to obtain their BSN) has to do with Magnet Hospital requirements.
