    Hey. I applied to 6 West. Just had an interview yesterday. I was told I can check in with my recruiter to inquire about my progress next week. So I'm crossing my fingers. Good luck to you guys.

    Well I'm not really sure if the interview was a success or not. I haven't heard back. It felt like we it went well to me only because they appeared engaged and interested in our conversation. It was one of the most pleasant interviews I had. The people who interviewed me where not at all intimidating and were very nice. They asked me some typical questions like Why CHLA? What got you to applied to the position? Tell us about your most difficult patient and how did you handle it? How did you handle conflict? Nothing that's a curve ball - it was all pretty straight forward. I was not asked any clinical questions as oppose to other interviews that I had, so that made it easier. It seemed that they mainly want to get to know me and my personality. I hope this helps a bit. Not sure if this would apply with the NICU program.

    Hi! I just finished my NICCU interview with 3 managers today. I was so nervous I don't think I did well. I wish I hadn't let the nerves get the best of me. I was told that they are interviewing candidates until November 28. If selected, second round of interview with the staff will be on December 11. They said they would only pick 6 candidates. Not sure how many applied.

    I was asked if I had attended any NICU related conferences and if I had PALS. I had none. I let my PALS expire because I never used it in the adult setting.

    Just curious what everyone's work background is. I have been an adult med/surg tele nurse for almost 8 years and finally had the courage to go for my dream job.

    I just heard from the 6West recruiter. Didn't make it in this round. They said that I'm a better fit elsewhere so they looking to see if they can give me an interview with the other units. I suppose I'll just have to keep trying. I would really like to work in pediatics. About my background, I'm a medsurg nurse with 2 years of experience. Good luck to everyone.
