I'm sorry to hear that :( I only applied to Fort Worth area hospitals but still haven't gotten a call or rejection email.

Yay that's great! I have not heard anything. Hopefully they will send out more emails this coming week. Which location is the interview for?

It's for OR which doesn't have a specific location. Apparently we rotate around until we get hired to a specific hospital, which is interesting! I think it's a good sign for those of you who haven't been rejected yet- I have a feeling the other specialties will start sending out interview times soon. I heard they're behind on the hiring process this year so that's why it's been taking so long.

That's pretty cool! Good luck on your interview :) And yes hopefully we will hear something soon. I'm starting to feel like I won't find a job which is discouraging. Where I live in Florida I can get a job very easily. DFW is completely different I'm finding lol.. Does anyone know of any other places that hire new grads around Dallas other than the major hospitals?

So I got a denial email and then the day before yesterday I got an email about an interview for the position I was denied for? Beats me, but I'll take it! My interview is next Friday! Anyone have any advice?

Applied for OR, had interview this past Thursday. I vaguely remember them saying I would hear something back by Saturday but no word yet.

The waiting is the hardest part :/

Hey TanaEJ,

The big hospitals are the ones who are more likely to offer a decent residency which is really vital as a new graduate. Another thing is that in our area, most smaller hospitals have been taken over by larger entities like Texas Health and Baylor Scott and White. I think you may know that as I looked on your other posts and saw you had looked into Baylor. I think one difficulty may be the ADN. There are a lot of BSN-producing schools in the area. Our hospital used to hire ADNs but to my knowledge the only new grad ADNs recently have been those who already worked in the system and of course they had to agree to get their BSN within 2 years. RNs who have worked for us for years are even under deadlines to get their BSNs.

It seems at least within the metroplex that ADN graduates who don't have connections tend to gravitate towards lower acuity facilities. The ones who go to long term acute care can sometimes use that to bridge to traditional inpatient care once they get their BSN. That may be your ticket in. Our local LTAC facilities care for some very sick patients, some even on vents and drips. Places like Kindred, Regency and Lifecare hospitals though I do not know the working conditions there, sorry.
