    It went really well I think how'd yours go? There's only one more day of interviews I think!
    yay! good for you! mined went alright, it felt good, but they were so nice that it's really hard to tell. But I got called for my second interview, so it couldn't have been too bad!

    Hello everyone! I am not a new grad resident applicant, but I am in the application process for CHLA and figured I could get some great info in this thread. I am a fairly new nurse (graduated with my BSN in May 2011) and my experience has been in the PICU. I actually applied to the CHLA residency in college but did not get in.. I assume it largely had to do with the fact that I live in Pennsylvania and did not include "will relocate" in my resume. :/ Anyway, now I have a year of PICU experience under my belt and am planning on relocating to CA! I applied to the PICU and 6 West on Monday and got a call back from HR on Tuesday saying that they are interested and are forwarding my info to the nurse managers. I don't want to get too ahead of myself, but I am really excited considering it took me SO LONG to get a job after I graduated. I'm hoping job number two will be easier. So to those of you who have interviewed, what was the interview process like? Behavioral or clinical questions? Anybody interview for the PICU or 6 West?

    Thanks for any info and good luck to everyone
