Loma Linda Children's 2011

Specializes in New Grad.

New grads:

Did anyone else apply to Loma Linda Children's Hospital's new grad program this past week? I just thought I'd start a thread for those that did, so we can keep each other updated as far as getting calls for interviews, preparing for the interview.... or, alternatively, commiserating about yet another rejection letter!

Yea I applied but after multiple rejections the past 6 months I don't get my hopes to high anymore:)

I applied too. We will see what happens but if these last 8 months have taught me anything, I'm still applying to other programs in the meantime. Waiting is the worst & I Have to keep proactive. Thanks for starting the thread!

I did too!

I wonder when they will start making calls.

Their website and previous posting experience says they will start making calls 4-6 weeks after the application deadline, so hopefully around 2/4-18 depending on department

Their e-mail that I got after I applied said two weeks. I'm hoping we hear from them by next week...that would be amazing!

Hi everyone!

Yup, I applied, too. :D I don't have much hope though. I just graduated and still haven't taken the NCLEX although I am scheduled for it very soon. There is so much competition and people who are already licensed and/or have their BSN have a better chance. :eek: I have no hope of being selected but thought I'd just try. I applied because it just felt right. I love kids and working as a pediatric nurse would be awesome. :yeah:It's one of my job goals.

Good luck to everyone! :heartbeat

:nurse:

Yea I started taking certification classes since I've Been receiving so much " pursueing better qaulified applicant" email...acls pals nrp etc...hope it helps :-/

Yeap, I just recertified for my BLS even though I had another year left on it. Got my PALS and ACLS certifications as well last month. Just missing the NRP I guess. Don't know what else to take to make myself look better when I start applying to jobs once I pass my NCLEX. Right now, I'm just concentrating on studying for my exam and taking classes to get into a RN to BSN program.

Sighhhhhhhhhhhhh...!!

I have a BA in English and Philosophy and my BSN is from an accelerated 15-month program. Finished with a 3.8 GPA and passed the NCLEX less than a month later. A lot of my classmates have jobs already, so it's pretty frustrating getting so many rejection e-mails!

If I had known that it was going to be this hard to find a job, I would have made sure to get a job in a hospital (aide, unit secretary, etc) while still in school....

I picked NICU first, the transplant unit second, and don't remember the third one...

its been 3 weeks since I applied, I hope we hear back from them soon!

How has it been three weeks? The application opened up on January 3rd. I'm assuming they meant two weeks from January 7th, which was the deadline to get in all the supplemental materials. I'm hoping that we hear back by Friday.....ugh, just put me out of my misery!

wwooops! 2, sorry.This anticipation just makes it feel longer. Agree?

Just got my rejection email today...same ol same ol...well gl to u all :)

Aww I'm sorry to hear that toin43. I got an email today saying my app is screened by a recruiter & will be forwarded to the manager to review. Anyone else got the same email?

Good luck to all of us!

Someone that I went to school with received a call today from a manager for an interview next week. I just received an email today that my application has been forwarded so I hope I get a call soon!
