Hello Everyone!

I would like to invite everyone who applied to the upcoming MS WHC RN program, or who applied to a previous residency program to post here.

For those who previously applied and interviewed, do you have any interview tips?

For those who applied to the upcoming program, what units did you select? Do you have any previous RN or CNA experience?

I'm finishing up an accelerated BSN program, and I don't have any previous experience (I haven't had the time!). I selected the stroke unit and the ER as my top choices, but I also told them that I would be open to other units.

This will be my first interview for an RN position, so I am nervous! :nailbiting:

I applied to MWHC, I received notification to take the battery test the next day, 2 days later, I received and email asking me to come for an interview. I'm graduating from an LPN to RN program this November. I did not request for any particular units, but they did offer me the interview for one of the medsurge units. My interview is schedule for this November, if anyone has any information/ or tips for interview please help.

Hey!! I went through the process and got in. They ask you questions specific to your unit. Basic assessment type stuff. Trust me, you'll do fine! And they told me that if all my things are in order I will be starting Dec. I think it depends on what unit you're going be in ( I'm in the ED)

Thanks for the updates. Good luck in your new position. Do you have a BSN or an ADN? Have you take your Nclex yet? I'm asking because I haven't take the Nclex yet, I hope they will hire me pending the license.
