    UCSF Medical Center New Grad Residency 2019

    Anyone had an interview already for ICN? I just got a call from them today for an interview, seems like they are still interviewing until early/mid July.

    Can I ask who the manager was that you spoke with? Fingers crossed they didn't do all the oncology calls in one day

    How did you guys address your cover letter?

    Were you able to successfully upload your resume and cover letter? I kept having to reattach after uploading.

    Residencies & Relocating?! HELP! CA (SF)

    Definitely! Thank you :) My only qualm about getting in touch with HR is it being too early. I want to be as direct as I can and try to form connections out there, but it's a bit hard from across the country. Hopefully that's what LinkedIN and National Nursing Societies are for!!

    Residencies & Relocating?! HELP! CA (SF)

    I'm definitely still going for it! Just also feeling the stress/pressure. Any idea if they'll start looking at apps "pending NCLEX"? I know some hospitals will allow you to apply without being licensed/upcoming exam and some places won't not really sure how it is in Cali/SF

    Residencies & Relocating?! HELP! CA (SF)

    ugh, as discouraging as it is to hear that it definitely doesn't surprise me :/ I really want to move out there but honestly might have to reconsider unfortunately! I'll definitely search for the facebook groups, thank you!!
  9. Hi, I am a nursing student in my last year of school in NYC. I am expected to graduate in May and I'm hoping to take the NCLEX in June or July, if possible. I'm planning to move to the Bay Area as my partner is already out there for work, but I am absolutely overwhelmed and worried about getting into a nurse residency program or even a new grad job since I know the market is so saturated there. I have a very good GPA, volunteer work, a nurse externship, and multiple leadership positions under my belt but I'm still extremely ancious that it's not enough. Does anyone have tips on new grads who are relocating? How soon should I start applying, and what can I do so I'm not just another name in a pile of papers?! Am I stressing about this too early, considering some applications probably won't open until March/April for Fall 2019 residencies? Any advice would be much sincerely appreciated.

    The overwhelming stress of nursing school

    I completely relate. I think we put so much additional pressure on ourselves (in addition to the pressure of nursing school, clinicals, etc) to "be the best". This past semester I cried because I was 0.2 away from getting an A in pharm. Looking back, I should have been proud of myself for doing well in such a hard class, but instead I beat myself up because I felt that this would ruin my chances of getting a good job out of the program. But you're right, it's so cliché, C's get degrees though! There is truth to it. I think that things like meditation, yoga, and finding little times throughout the day to yourself are sacred. Find time to unwind, your body, mind, and soul will thank you!

    NYC Nursing Internship/Externship Information

    Hey! Super late reply to this thread, but I will be doing my externship in the OR at Langone as well! I was wondering how your experience with the externship went. Ours starts Monday and we've been in the dark with all of the information/schedules, was it super disorganized for you? And how long was your time there, I know they say it's 8-10 weeks, would love to get some insight on this! Thanks

    NYU Langone Student Nurse Extern Program- Summer 2016

    How did you access the application/when did they open up? I'm trying to apply to externships for summer 2018 and I can't find any applications anywhere. I know of programs that exist, but trying to actually apply has been very difficult
  13. Hi! I am currently in my junior year about to begin my second clinical sequence at NYU. I am very interested in applying for an externship in NYC this summer, the problem is, I can't seem to find any of the applications, the websites are either super vague, or just lead me to a "page not found" link. I know the ones that I want to apply to exist (i.e. Langone, MSK, Mount Sinai, NY Presb., etc.). Does anyone have any resources/tips/links on how to access these applications? (Any advice in general regarding externships would be greatly appreciated!) Thank you.
