Florida Hospital Graduate Nurse Program - September/October Start Date

Posted

Hi! Is anyone else a new grad applying for the September/October start date for FL Hospital's GN program? I graduated earlier in July and now I'm just waiting until they open the application so I can go ahead and apply.

Has anyone heard how many new grads they usually hire in ICU? That's the area I'm really hoping to get an interview in.

I had heard that the October application should be posted by the end of July, but that isn't looking promising... It's strange because for the July/August start date, they had the application up 3 or 4 months in advance.

Has anyone heard anything yet? My application still says "Under Initial Review."

I was called today for what I think was a phone interview, but I didn't see the call until after 5 pm.

I applied Orlando east with my 1st choice to be in the ICU. I currently work in the ICU as a tech and also have my ACLS so I'm hoping it gives me a decent chance!

Good luck! I'm also really interested in ICU, but also interested in ED which I've heard is extremely competitive. I applied for Winter Park, Altamonte, or South. I think you being a tech and having your certification in ACLS will definitely give you a great edge!
