@NewGradRN2019 

I will be working on C5-3 which is a Pedi unit, which is a different pedi unit than I interviewed for the first time. 

When I attended Interview Day last year, it largely took place in a in the hotel across from the Hospital. We checked in and each unit had a tables or two in a large banquet hall. At each table there were several other people interviewing for the unit, as well as a couple current nurse residents, unit managers, and unit nurse educators. While there, we were given an overview of the nurse residency program at large, while we had lunch. After lunch we were given a tour of the unit (and for the pediatric units, a quick tour of the other pedi units which often interact with each other). Throughout this whole time we had the opportunity to talk with the current nurse residents and ask questions. Then afterwards, we took turns interviewing with the unit manager and unit nurse educator. Then after you interviewed you would could leave. When I interviewed last February, I think there were maybe around 120 people interviewing across the entire hospital. I think maybe 10-12 interviewed for the same unit as me. I am not sure how many people they accepted, and I think it varies year to year. 

I heard back about the position a little over a week after interviewing, but I know some people heard back earlier and some people heard back later. 

The next time I interviewed, when I was talking with some of the managers and educators, one things they really emphasized is how there are often many people they interview who they like, but do to the volume of applicants and people interviewing (particularly for high interest areas like pediatrics, intensive care, and emergency room) they have to make really hard decisions and hope that people will apply again. So really I have to say, if you don’t get it the first time, and it is something you really want, you really should apply again. Because nothing says shows that you are really dedicated and that this is something you really want to do than trying again.

I wish you all luck with your interviews!
