Are there any other new grad RNs starting at Washington Hospital Center in the February Residency program? What speciality area would you be working in? Would also be great to hear feedback from RNs who started there recently or who have worked there for a while. I'm super excited to start!!!

Hey I have an interview on the cardiac thoracic unit for washington hospital center. Do you mind sharing some tips on interviewing with the manager? Did you like the hospital? Thanks a bunch!

HI Happiness5!

I have read in some posts that they're giving patient scenarios, then asks what if questions... plus the usual interview questions...

congrats that you've been given a chance for interview,, when did you pass your application? how long does it take before you hear a call from them?

I think it's a good unit, because I've talked to some staff of other departments and they've also started working there and they said they learned a lot,,

Thanks for the advice. I actually sent in my application either in the end of november or december. I've read that there is a dream day from people but I didn't find out about it until recently. The nurse recruiter just emailed me out of no where and scheduled an interview. It will be my first time in dc too. I'm really nervous about this interview.

Thank you. I do not have any working experience because I'm a new graduate. I know they wanted people with their RN license already.

But your really lucky to have an interview with them,, I know someone who also applied there with a DC license but haven't heard anything yet... So they might have seen something really special in your application for giving you that chance! :)
