Help! Does any one need a roommate(s) that are moving to DC for the job? I had one and everything squared away and then my roommate bailed on me 3 days before I'm meant to move!!! If interested, email me at:
firstname.lastname@example.org Lookingforward to hearing from yall!
I'm taking my NCLEX this Sunday and moving to DC on Thursday!! Ahhhh :-0 !!!
AWESOME!! Congrats!! How ecstatic are you??!! Lookin' forward to meeting you in orientation! :-D Look for the girl named Anna from Arkansas haha !!!
good luck BlessedNurs :-D !
I think if you do it onsite you're good to go that day.
Somebody asked about DC Fingerprints--yes, it is required for them to process or even look at your DC RN license application--it is not listed on the checklist though but there is a separate section on the website regarding fingerprints and how to go about getting them done. You can get them done onsite in DC or have them done locally and mail them in (what I'm doing) if you are not in the area. It takes along time to have it done long-distance so I'd get on it asap if you're from out-of-the-district area. !
also, i'm not the best source on reasonably prices/good area in DC but the NW areas are the safest, but pricey. Probably won't pay less than 1000 in rent unless you move into a room in a house or something. The closest metro stop is Brookland/CUA (redline) or Columbia Heights (green line). There is a shuttle that runs from both of those that takes about 5 minutes. There is more info on the WHC website as well.
Hey girl! I believe I will be on 1B or 1C. Honestly i can't remember in the excitement of it all. I swear that day I was on 1B but on the phone i thought I heard 1C. But its a med/surg floor at any rate.
yes, i actually put an add on craigslist about a month ago and have found a roommate and we are currently research/looking into places. I plan on living in DC either in or around Adams Morgan/Dupont Circle/Chinatown/or U Street.
What about you? what are your relocation plans?
Also, I'm nervous about getting my license switched over. I've been doing my research to know exactly what to do but I don't take my NCLEX til June 20th and I'm moving right after that so I hope its a quick and painless process to walk into the DC authority and get my license switched over. I hope I get those stupid fingerprints back in the mail soon so I can go ahead and send them to the Metropolitan police so they can process them. Anyways, I just don't want anything to jepordize this opportunity so I hope it goes smoothly.
Yes, I accepted right away !!!
Just got the news---I got a call that I was offered a position on the unit I interviewed for!!! Am so excited and don't know what to do with myself!!!!! :-D
I had an interview yesterday and thought it went really well!! I was really glad that I'd been reading this thread because I felt really prepared. My nurse director asked two of the exact same questions that someone had posted on here, and it was nice not to be shocked by there being like 25 other interviewees there.
Anyways, I thought it went really well, and I hope I hear something soon!!
I saw ppl that had posted that in earlier threads about this residency..not the July Cohort but earlier ones!..
I think no news is probably good news :-) ! From what i've seen, ppl got a rejection email the next day after their interview....
keep your chin up!!
thats awesome, congratulations! Do you have any tips for us that are about to go? What was it like?
I was wondering about who you interviewed with vs. what unit you wrote down as your first choice as well. was the Medicine floor your first choice and did you interview with that nurse manager? Or someone else?
Emergency Dept is very competitive. I suggest you call the HR recruiter ASAP and discuss with them. They have so many interviews to do, you'll only get to interview with one nurse manager.
