Applying for New Grad Programs

  1. I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction as far as how to begin applying to New Grad Programs in the SF bay area. I'm aware that a lot of the hospitals around here are foregoing their summer programs, so I'm thinking more the Fall as a starting point for me (hopefully those won't be cut as well!).

    For those who have been accepted or already applied, how did you start the process? When I look at hospital's websites I can't seem to find any helpful information or links. Any info would be greatly appreciated, thanks

    Reason why you couldn't find any information on their website is because there is NO new grad program. If you are looking to apply for fall, its way too early and there are not accepting any resumes/apps at this time.

    Your best bet is too keep checking their website/call HR/email HR and see what happens.

    Also, something to keep in mind is the fact that fall/winter programs are almost always smaller than summer programs, since many more people are graduating, testing, and looking for employment after the spring semester. If you're finding that hospitals are cutting their programs for this summer, it's a good bet that pickings will be even slimmer come December/January.
