    I am not sure if this is true or not, but someone told me that they made some calls over the weekend for interviews ... Again, just through the grapevine. I am sure we will know for sure in the next few days....

    Still got nothing! I guess the timeline is just a mere suggestion!

    Hey dreamwave,
    I wouldn't get too discouraged. I sort of doubt they would make calls over the weekend and I think at least one person in this group would have received one if they had. I am still going to be optimistic and take some deep breaths! I don't think people in Colorado like to work through the weekend =P

    Thanks, Christina I like your optimism. I know, I think the weekend thing would be a little weird. Although I must say that I know 2 people from my nursing cohort that got interview offers already. They may not be done contacting people yet though!! Until we get some sort of email I will keep optimistic

    Did u go to Regis? Or another Denver school? Did they do their practicing there?
  9. by   dreamwaves420
    Yeah, I went to Regis! The 2 people that I know that got interviews did do their senior practicum there. I did my practicum elsewhere, although I did my pediatric rotation there. I know from a meeting I went to during that rotation that the application process is so extremely competitive, and they have very limited slots, so I am keeping things in perspective. Even if I have to get a little experience elsewhere , I am sure I will reapply in the future Where did you go to school? Are you in Denver? I am finding that it's extremely hard to find hospitals that want new grads here

    I went to school in DC.. But I'm moving back to Denver this week, I'm from there. I have friends that went to Regis. There are a LOT of positions not taking new grads... But we will all get jobs someplace in Denver... Hopefully at children's. I've heard it's competitive with limited slots as well!

    We should be notified either way i think?

    Hey guys,

    HR just called me from Children's and they said that everyone who got interviews was called on Friday.. Apparently there was over 300 applicants and only 30 got interviews. She said almost all of them did their senior practicums there..

    I have an interview for the Spring 2013 residency program at Children's. If any of you went through the interview process, do you have any advice?!
