    I just called the Nurse Recruitment office, and the woman on the phone said that they've finished screening the applicants and that they're working with the units to see which ones will take new grads. She said they haven't started making calls to schedule interviews yet, which is weird, because people are reporting having gotten calls! So perhaps her info isn't up to date. Apparently the guy in the know is ---------, who was out of the office when I phoned.

    Do we have any way of knowing/finding out if our specific application has been routed?

    Hi everyone! I called HR and they said only a couple units are hiring. The nurse recruiter is still waiting to hear from some other units but this is going to be a small cohort. Only 6 spots for 600 applicants!! No calls have been made for interviewing yet, but calls should all be made by August 13th! Fingers crossed everyone! Good luck!

    Wow 6 spots really? Thats crazy.

    That is crazy! Did HR say which units were actually hiring? And does anyone know when they'll be finished calling for interviews?

    Where on FB does everyone keep seeing these posts? Is it a UC Davis page? I'm so lost!

    I think they may be referring to New Grad RN JOBS [Calif.+] fb group.

    I called the nurse recruiter this morning. He said they are planing to hire a total of 6 new grads and many departments are not hiring new grads due to budget. Good luck

    Hey everyone, just found this board.

    I had an interview today for Pediatrics. The NM said they looked at ~27 applications (those were forwarded from HR), they were interviewing about half of those, and then they had 2, maybe 3 positions. They would probably have decisions by early next week.

    With those odds, who knows!
    But good luck to everyone that applied/interviewed! :-)

    [FONT=lucida grande]Hey there. Just spoke to Nurse Recruitment. He said that some units are still making calls for interviews. He said that due to the high number of applicants (over 700) they are sticking to folks who had a senior preceptorship in the kind of units that are hiring. There are only 10 job openings total. ICU didn't request any new hires, so that leaves me out. Good luck to everyone else! The guy in Nurse Recruitment was very friendly and helpful, so if you have questions go ahead and call him.
