    Sorry if this has already been addressed, but I didn't want to wade through the 13 pages of this thread.....regarding GPA, is it your nursing school GPA? For example, my nursing school GPA is 4.0, however I graduated with a BA 18 years ago. Am I supposed to incorporate those grades too? I have almost 200 non-nursing credits as I actually have 2 bachelor degrees. But they are from so long ago...Thanks in advance for your feedback.

    Good question. I don't think it has been specified yet, which gpa is looked at. I'm wondering, too.

    i think just nursing school GPA is the only one they are concerned with.

    :clphnds:CONGRATULATIONS to those of you got job offers from Cedars-Sinai!!!

    Wow, many of you made it!! I am glad, hopefully your luck will spread around and some of us still waiting will get calls as well.

    The information that some of you got from HR regarding the number of positions they will actually offer and the different starting dates seems somewhat conflicting. However, I hope it is true that they really have 100+ openings to offer us. Anyways, to those of you that actually called HR, thanks a lot for sharing the info.

    Clearly, the wait has extended for some of us...let's just have faith....I will keep my fingers crossed at least until I get a letter, LOL!!!

    I don't know for sure, but I think they look at your whole GPA because they go off of the college transcript you provided. So maybe if you just provided them with your nursing transcripts, they'll just go off of that.

    Well first off, congratulations on passing the boards!!!

    Second, I'm not sure how I feel about today being the last day! Hopefully those of us still waiting will get a call in the last remaining hours, but if we don't, I guess it's good that we don't have to sit around waiting for another two weeks just to find out we didn't get it. Ahhh, so nervous.

    Thanks for the update candleguy! I have mixed feelings about today being the last day for "the call". Does this mean they would be calling close to 100 people today? Goodluck to everyone!

    Not necessarily. They were calling people all last week, so we don't know how many have already been notified and how many are left.

    Called HR and I spoke to the receptionist again. She said they consider our cumulative GPA not just Nursing GPA.

    She also said that today is not the last day for calls and to give them until the end of this week or middle of next week because they still have a lot of calls to make. They said that they did not know how many have been called or how many are left to be called.

    I know we are getting mixed info here, so I guess we just have to wait and see. No one seems to give me a straight answer. I think the only ones who really know are the recruiters themselves. So, if anyone can get any info from the recruiters when you are called, can you please update us? It would really be appreciated. I know there was already a previous post regarding a convo with one, but we still need clarification.

    Thanks guys.

    Congratulations on passing NCLEX!
