    Did you do the phone interview already? and when is your next interview? I am a new grad that got accepted this past february so I am still a new grad. There were only 17 of us selected so it was very different then i think your program will be. We were interviewed individually by a manager of a unit then if hired put on one of their many med surg units and had new grad classes and ten weeks of orientation. It is very hard to get into specialty areas and they want you to just build your skills on med/surg what specialty area are you thinking?

    sorry forgot to finish your question but the starting pay depends on what degree you have, associates, bachelors or masters so I am not sure what it will be they discuss that with you and there is night and weekend differentials as well but again it depends on your base rate....

    Congrats on your acceptance into the new grad program in February!!

    I have already completed the first-phase interview and will be moving onto the second-phase interview tomorrow (May 21st). I have been following a couple of different forums and this particular interview session appears to be different because several people have interviews at the same time. I don't really know what to expect because the first interview asked many of those general interview questions, so I don't know what will be asked during this second phase. Will it be a lot of patient-scenario questions? medication questions?

    Thank you so much for you quick response! I appreciate it very much =]

    I just realized I forgot to answer your question as well. I am applying to a position in the ER, but I believe they are also going to have all the new grads start in med/surg units as well.

    Oh wow, the pay is actually different for the different degrees?

    Have you already completed the new grad training? Or will you be starting the new grad classes and orientation with the July hires?

    Once again, thank you for sharing this information.
