    Providence TIP Residency Program January 2020

    I actually just got an email to set up an in-person interview as well. I submitted my application and video on October 2nd.

    My friend just got an email to set up an in-person interview at the Burbank location.... Hopefully we will all be hearing something soon!

    That's great! My status hasn't changed yet.... Still says "Thank you, we have received your submission". Fingers crossed that it changes soon! If you don mind me asking, when did you apply/submit your video?

    No problem! Same to you! I just figured this is a great way to stay connected throughout this process and more than anything, have an encouraging and positive platform!

    Hi Leslie, The video part of the process is 4-5 audio and video questions, plus 6-7 text responses. You get unlimited chances to record your intro/about me response. Then you get 2 chances to record the other questions they ask. They are super simple and standard questions (why did you become a nurse, why do you want to be in this program, tell me about your clinical experience, how do you deal with strict deadlines/stress). You get the questions before you have to actually record, so that way you can prep a little bit. It’s not bad! Good luck!

    Hi @flowerdeer91! I applied to the ED, Med Surg/Telemetry, and L&D at the Burbank and Mission Hills locations. What about you?

    Hi there! Yes, I received the same thing right after I submitted my application. I didn’t see a deadline for it, but I would get it done before the 7th just to be safe.
  8. Hi everyone! I just wanted to start a thread so we can all keep each other updated regarding the application and interview process for the Providence TIP Residency program!

    If any of you are interested and want to get a head start in reading, I can send you the PowerPoints you will be using for the Winter Session. Send me a message and I can email them to you!

    Good question! Well, if you are able to get any aid or qualify for the BOG waiver, that is a TREMENDOUS help. Unfortunately, they go off of your taxes from two years prior and my husband happened to do well that year, so I didn't qualify for any assistance. SO, to answer your question, books are pretty expensive. Your professor will explain the book situation the first day of class. I WOULD NOT recommend buying the books ahead of time or separate. The book company has a deal with the school to sell them cheaper as a bundle. The first set of books you will need in the winter cost about $300. Then when you start your first semester, they cost about $650. The good this is that these book will then last you the ENTIRE program (all 4 semesters). Also included are the books in online form AND a bunch of supplemental information and questions. SO WORTH IT! So although it seems like a big chunk of change all at once, they do last you the entire program and you will not need to buy other books. As far as working goes, it is fine during the intersession (winter), but once first semester comes around, it is near IMPOSSIBLE to work. I think there are 3 or 4 people in our program that work part-time or less. The amount of time you spend studying, reading, doing assignments, writing papers, and 20 page care plans, is pretty insane. My advice is to read, read, read!!! Do as many problems as you can (back of the book, online, quizlets), buy an organizer and really stick to it because due dates come up quick, and there are SO many things to keep in order. Also, you are required to do 12 hours of community service with the elderly. I recommend getting that out of the way ASAP! Also, as soon as you get an assignment or paper topic, GET IT DONE! This is not the place to wait last minute to do things. Also, most importantly, it is VERY important to have YOU time. Take a few hours or a day to do something you enjoy.... Nursing school is incredibly stressful and hard, so you need mental breaks to regroup and let go of the stress. :)

    Hi everyone! Congrats to all those that got accepted and to those that didn't there is still time! People drop last minute or change their minds and they accept people all the way up until the day classes start! We are about to wrap up our first semester and boy was it CRAZY! Please feel free to message me or ask me any questions you may have. Also, it is incredibly helpful to put together a private Facebook page with all of your classmates. That way you don't miss any information, due dates, assignments, etc. We have a couple of 2nd & 3rd semester students in our Facebook page to answer any questions we may have. Can't wait to meet you all!!!

    No problem! I'm not kidding when I say that our class is like family. We are all SO incredibly close and SUCH good friends. Nobody will know what you're going through except for the 20 people in your class. Buckle up because it's going to be a wild ride! Lol. :)

    Hi there! I'm currently a first semester student at GCC. SO happy to hear you got in! It is an AMAZING program!!! I am actually in the standard program (Monday-Thursday) but I know that the W/E cohort has class on Monday from about 4:30-7:30, Wednesday from 1:40-8ish, and a 12 hour clinical on Saturday from 6am-6pm. Hope that helps!

    Hello! I'm actually a 1st semester student in the program and to answer your question, there should have been an option to select your preference of Standard or Weekend/Evening. Now, this doesn't guarantee that you will be given your choice, but it should have let you pick a preference. I was initially denied, then waitlisted, then accepted. At that point I was willing to take whatever they had space in, haha! Best of luck!!!

    Don't get discouraged! I am currently a first semester student at GCC that didn't get accepted initially. I was feeling pretty down about it. Just let them know you are still interested and you would like them to keep your file for the next semester. They actually picked quite a few people from the alternate list for my cohort! Keep your heads up!
