Anyway, again congrats for the selected ones and MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL! Keep applying!

I used to work there as one of the educators and....one of my favorite moments working there at USC was with the RN residents! Perhaps I'm biased...but I have to say it is a highly comprenhensive, thorough, and a well-prepared nursing residency program! I remember receiving a ton of applicants for our program! Good luck for those of you interviewing! This place is what I consider home...and I think one of the best places to work at. The staff there are awesome! I will say...it is highly competitive!
