CHOA peds test

U.S.A. Georgia

Published

Hi! I am a new grad and am in the middle of the interview process with CHOA, Scottish Rite. I was wondering if anyone knows about the PEDS test that new applicants must take and make a 750. More so, if there are any ways to particularly prepare for this test. I just want to do the best I can. Thanks!!

Sorry, I just stumbled upon your post! But I did have a quick question for you. I was wondering when you applied to CHOA did you apply to a specific new grad position or any RN position? Just trying to get some information. Any help would be appreciated! :)

Hi! I did my senior practicum in nursing school at CHOA Egleston. So when I was ready to start applying to hospitals I wanted to work at CHOA first and foremost. Unfortunately, due to the economy there are very few opportunities to new grads at CHOA. I applied to all RN jobs regardless of whether they said experienced or new grad (there were none that said new grad). I got email after email that said they wanted an experienced nurse. Finally one day a nurse recruiter from CHOA called me and said they had saw my application so many times for other positions that they think they have one i might be interested in. So, i interviewed, took the exam and actually got the job :) So be persistant and dont give up. You want your name to stand out in their head. Also, if you get an interview be sure to send a thank you card the next day. I did that because there were 10 other interviews for my job and i swear that made me stick out in their heads because I went the extra mile. Good luck and hope to see you here soon!!

Thank you soo much for all the info!! I graduate in June, and CHOA is my all time goal! That is where I have wanted to be from the very beginning. But when I looked on their website I saw they offered new grad jobs, but none were posted. So I wasn't sure if they would post them closer to graduation or if I should just start applying! I will def be doing EVERYTHING you suggested! I can't thank you enough! Thanks again!!

I also plan to do the senior practicum at CHOA in the next fall semester and apply to work at CHOA after school. Thank you so much for your advice!
