    8 open spots, 8 internals. if any externals are contacted near the December 15th deadline, please share! But from what I was told, externals aren't even being reviewed or seriously considered until further positions are opened, which is indefinite but may open in a month.

    Though, I'm curious if anyone else has received other information or possible offers?

    A friend was contacted last week for an interview. She has a connection. She is not an internal. I have no other information. I really want to work there...

    So disappointing! but please do let us know if you're an external who received a call! It would give us a little hope that we may still be considered!

    Good luck to all of you! I went through City of Hope's new grad program. It's a great place to work. I know they no longer hire ADN's, so if you're an ADN and you applied, you'll automatically be rejected. I also know that some of their current ADN's are working as PCA's to get their foot in the door, so that may be where the internal candidates are coming from. They are trying to go Magnet, but I am not sure of the status on that. Beautiful hospital, great staff and patients (at least on my floor). Keep trying and good luck!

    Interesting. I'm actually an external, and I interviewed/toured with the NR. Though like I said, I'm not even close to being considered since they don't know where to put the 8 internals they currently have. The NR also gave me some insight into their current hiring situation, and it looks as though I'm mandated to look elsewhere. An exceptional NR, though.

    But as previously stated, there is hope to hold on to for the next month or even the weeks before the program actually starts. The facility is absolutely amazing and I envy anyone who gets an offer! Good luck everyone!

    NewGrad0512 - did your status on the website changed from being "On File"?

    Email rejection today

    Yes, my status changed. But only after I met with the NR. It changed to...NOT SELECTED. haha ugh! But I believe unless we are internals or employee referrals, we will be rejected. Still curious if any other externals had any luck and maybe I just sucked!

    I want to suggest to still have hope, as they were originally intending to hire over double the 8 spots. Generally, they take 12 but I guess it's funky this cohort. We'll watch and see how this next month goes.

    My status still says "On File." I didn't receive a rejection e-mail yet. Maybe they are going through and rejecting in order that people applied? I applied on the 27th. I don't have much hope.

    I think I applied on the 23rd.

    I applied 11/02 and my status still says On File. No rejection email and I'm not an internal or a referral.

    I received a rejection email today as well. I believe I applied on the 28th of November. I'm an external, and it sounds like other external applicants have been rejected as well. Good luck to everyone else, though!
