    hi guys,

    i applied for positions in the ER, OR, and Pediatrics. i still haven't heard anything from the nurse recruiter yet and i think it's safe to assume everyone hasn't either. i think a mass e-mail will be sent out soon to those who are or will be selected. maybe the deadline for unit nurse managers to submit names of candidates they want to interview is within the next few days and then we will hear from them. good luck, everyone. keep your fingers crossed! i will post as soon as i hear anything from Hershey =)

    hi again everyone!

    i just received an e-mail from the nurse recruiter at 2:07pm today to notify me of an interview confirmation! the e-mail contains the date and time of the interview (Nov 7th, 1:30pm) as well as my interviewer's names, room number, and the unit (PEDS). You guys should check your e-mail if you're not already checking it compulsively like i have. i'm waiting to hear good news from everyone!!! yay!!!

    okay, so now i gotta go buy a suit lol

    Hi everyone! I also got an email today notifying about the interview!!!!!! They set me up for an interview with my top choice. For those who received emails... are you scheduled for only interview place? Or all 3 that you selected as your top choice??

    lacePSU, Congrats!!

    in my e-mail i saw only 1 interview with the nurse manager on PEDS unit. well, so it starts at 1:30pm with the nurse recruiter meeting me in the lobby and possibly asking some questions and showing me around. then at 2pm, i go up to the 7th floor to interview with a nurse manager on the pediatrics unit. my top choice was ER and 2nd choice was OR but i was given only 1 interview in PEDS (my 3rd choice) but i'm still very happy. i think they don't have that many positions available in the ER or OR anyways.

    Yes I had only one interview scheduled too, which is why I asked if that seemed to be how it was for others too. I know someone who interviewed last year and they said that when you meet with Lynn, she directs you where to go and gives some interview tips on the way. I was under the impression that she isn't going to ask any interview questions, but I don't know if things have changed in a year.

    I am interviewing in the HVICU... is anyone else??

    That first? I was told they'll get back to us by mid next week.

    WOW they said by next week??? In the HVICU they didn't say anything about when I would hear, and it slipped my mind to ask since a while ago Lynn said hopefully we would hear by Thanksgiving. I really hope we hear that soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Please everyone keep posting any updates! How did everyone feel the interview went? From the info I got in my interview, the GNR program sounds even more AMAZING than what the website says and I really think it's the best way to go when just graduating.
