  1. I want to apply to the MSKCC Nurse Residency Program for Monmouth, NJ location but I am having trouble finding any application. It may be too late to apply, or maybe I just cannot find the link. Their website talks about the program briefly but offers nothing that brings you to an application or any further information. If anyone has any information on this, please let me know. Or, if anyone knows if they hire RN new graduates (working towards BSN) let me know! I very much want to work at Memorial Kettering-Sloan Cancer Center in NJ. Thanks all!
  2. There wasn't as guidelines, just "write an essay". Thanks though, I'll to make it less wordy.
  3. Hey, all! I wrote out my essay for a New graduate nurse residency program. I'm hoping that I can get some feedback! All criticism is welcome. My own thought is that it may lack a personal touch, which I'm finding difficult to write out due to my complete lack of any relevant working experience, and blanking on anything I could write about my clinicals. Here it is (with horrible formatting): Throughout my nursing education, [Hospital Name] has served as an outstanding source of experience, information, and support. For two years, I had the privilege of working with my clinical professors at several different units in [Hospital]. I served my last semester precepting with experienced RNs, and received nothing less than overwhelming support and encouragement. As an individual, I will bring my enthusiasm for the profession of nursing, years of customer experience, and the ability to work well with my colleagues and as a part of the health care team. My passion for learning would serve me well in the program, as I intend to grow and expand my knowledge to become a more competent and compassionate RN. I am a hardworking and focused individual who possess the ability to deliver my best work in everything I put myself into. I believe nursing to be a challenging and rewarding profession; one that allows you to make a difference and care for people during their most vulnerable moments. To be given such trust is both a privilege and an honor. Given the opportunity, I will work diligently to put forth my greatest efforts in delivering excellent patient care, thorough patient advocacy, and complete professionalism. I would be honored at the opportunity to join the [Hospital Name] team, which would allow me to transition from a new graduate nurse into a capable RN by fostering my skills of critical thinking, communication, and professional connectivity. I believe the program would assist me in developing and maintaining my clinical competence, and teach me about the policies specific to [Hospital Name]. I look forward to the opportunity of joining the [Hospital Name] team as a permeant part of your staff during the conclusion of this program, and would be honored to begin my career at a hospital that puts such a great emphasis on the training and education of new graduate nurses.
