Hi everyone,

Just wondering if anyone has heard back from this program! We were going to be contacted around mid May for potential interviews. It's nearing mid May so I was wondering if anyone has heard any updates!

Thanks 🙂

They are interviewing this week and next. I interviewed for the Behavioral Health department yesterday and am interviewing for Med Surg as well. I think they are interviewing internally first, based off of what you selected in your application preferences.

Everyone was very friendly; the software they are using for online interviews is a little wonky at first, but we made due. They asked the same typical interview questions all hospitals ask. Tell me about a hard time you had with a coworker and how you worked through it, etc. and then told me about the department. 

Hopefully I will hear back soon. 

Does anyone know how many people actually get accepted into the program?

Thanks for the input Eliana!

I found this on an older thread about how many people get accepted:

CourtBSN said:

"Yes they definitely asked why you chose the selected units as your top choices. I believe there might have been a scenario question or two, but I don't recall a prioritization question.

The cohort I'm in is bigger than they usually are- we have 17 nurses in it and they said they interviewed around 40-50. The cohort after mine I think has about 10-12 nurses in it."

Might be a little different now since it was 5 years ago but hopefully still gives some perspective.

Has anyone heard anything yet? Any news?

I haven't gotten anything on my end and I'm wondering if I should stop anxiously waiting and move on considering its past when they said they were doing interviews.

Hi, just wanted to update everyone that I accepted a position in one of the ICUs! I hope you guys hear back soon! I was an internal applicant so maybe that's why I interviewed so soon.

The interview was over the phone for me and it was with two managers. It only lasted about 30 minutes! They asked behavioral questions, looking for examples of handling conflict, teamwork examples, and your future goals. Then they told me about the program and gave me time to ask questions for the last 10 minutes.

Good luck everybody!
