    HCA Interview

    I applied to a bunch of hospitals in south Florida but north Florida is the only places that are calling me back so far. The money that they are offering isn’t bad either. I really want a surgical unit residency so I hope the ones that I applied to call me back. But if I get the Med-Surg/Ortho position I‘ll take it.

    HCA Interview

    Is there anyone that recently had an interview with an HCA facility for the new grad residency? Can you please share your experience and the type of questions that they asked? I have one coming up and I'm super nervous. This is my first interview as a new grad and I'm ready to nail the interview and start working.

    Stood up for a phone screen

    I am a new grad and had an appointment for a phone interview awhile back for a corrections RN position. I made sure I was in a quiet place and available for the call... The call never came. I feel like I was stood up for the prom or a date lol. Obviously I'm applying to other places and I sent an email out to the recruiter for a follow up. I'm a little annoyed that I had a confirmed appointment and I was blown off. Has this ever happened to any one else that had a set time for a phone interview and the person never reached out?
  4. I would go to nursing school and work part-time since the money will take the stress of how you will pay for everything but if you can't just go to school. I worked all through out my prerequisites and my bachelor degree in another major and I only am leaving my job now because I will be going to nursing school everyday besides the weekend. I am thinking about applying as a nurse tech or CNA my second semester of nursing school. The first semester I just want to focus on school without any distractions, since its an accelerated program they advised us not to work the first semester since it is the most credits. Finish while you are still young! I see so many post on here of people in their 50's asking if they are too old to start. I'm only a few years older than you but a regret of mine is focusing too much on work and changing my major from nursing. If I had took it more seriously and worked less I would be a nurse right now. On my 24th birthday my mom gave me a wake up call. She said "Happy Birthday, you're getting old now and the clock is ticking. When are you going to do the nursing program?" Obviously I'm not old but I didn't want anymore time passing me by as everyone is happy in their careers and I'm just stuck at my job that I'm not in love with. Good luck with school :)

    Nursing career

    I also want to be an O.R nurse. I do hear so many people say it's hard to get into. I wouldn't mind mother/baby though.

    Is it showing you are except from the healthcare class on your transcripts?

    I would go and sit down with someone in advising and ask why you haven't received anything yet. I think there is more to it. Maybe something missing or misplaced.

    The only thing I can think of is the intro to healthcare class. Did you take it with the lab? Its mandatory

    Your grades are excellent. I feel like you should have been selected by now. Is there a way you can check to see if you put the right email?

    its only the sciences. Chemistry with lab, anatomy 1 & 2 with lab, and microbiology. did you speak to an adviser or just the person at the front desk? I feel like if they only accept 40 then it would have been full by now.

    People in the second wave have until the 8th to accept or decline their seats so it'll probably be sent out after that if all the seats are full.
