    hi there! very nice of you to post all that.

    also, are all these hospitals accept only online applications? I know i always go to career tabs and search for a position and from there i submit applications but im wondering is there anything else that i havent done for application? i just dont know why it seem to be quite hard to land an entry level RN position

    Godbless

    hi there! very nice of you to post all that..
    I go through the whole list on Monday/Tuesday, then the rest of the week, I'll check my short list.

    I'd recommend checking hospitals that don't have an actual new grad program. I've read the descriptions and seem like they will hire new grads but I didn't put it on the list. I'd call the nurse recruiter and ask. I'll be calling a couple of them for myself if I can wake up before 5pm

    anybody here applied at sharps new grad residency prog? did you made a portfolio? i just wanted to ask something about it, heres the copy of the requirements

    application process (required)
    to apply for a new grad program, you must submit a new grad rn portfolio. the portfolio requires the following information:

    1. submit your application. - what application? is there a form of some kind? if there is where can i get it



    1. submit your rsum. please include clinical placements and hours, as well as work/volunteer information.



    1. submit a cover letter.



    1. complete the supplemental information form. - what supplemental info you added? and how you made it



    1. provide two clinical letters of references from your preceptors, instructors or clinical facilitators. you should also provide one professional/volunteer letter of reference (if applicable). - is this simply references that you added with the resume? what clinical letters?



    1. provide a copy of your most recent unofficial transcript (does not require official seal).

    there you go..hope my questions will be answered. i would like to submit a portfolio of application to their feb 2010 grad program.

    tnx!

    Thanks, starzburst!

    Regarding the Lucile Packard postings...they mention an online supplemental form but I don't see it. I remember the last round they posted it and it was a series of questions...HR has gone straight to voicemail all day. Any idea?

    Thanks!

    On September 28 at 9am, they will post their New Grad position. That's where you will fill out their application. Then you will send in the required documents to them, which are:

    * Online application
    * Resume
    * Cover letter
    * Supplemental Information Form (available on the New Grads page on Sept. 28)
    * Two letters of recommendation
    * Unofficial transcripts

    Looks like LP took down their postings. They have a confusing website.. I think they have another site with information. Found it http://westandforcare.com/careers_ne...on_process.cfm but no Supplemental form.
