    Main Line Health Nurse Residency Program

    Ughhh! If you don't mind me asking, what units did you select?

    Main Line Health Nurse Residency Program

    Wow, ironic you commented when you did- I received a rejection email a few minutes afterward LOL I'm kind of disheartened I was not even offered a first-round interview, but previous comments on here lead me to believe that some units only hire maybe 1-2 people, & the majority are internal candidates. Let me know if you hear/have any luck!
  3. Does anyone have experience applying to Main Line Health’s Nurse Residency Program? My application was waitlisted, so I am curious if this happened to anyone else who was then later given the opportunity to interview? I am just wondering if there’s still a chance I could be offered an interview, or if being waitlisted realistically means no. Thanks in advance for your help!

    2 year commitment

    Thank you so much for your responses! Your input is exactly what I needed, advice from the other side/different perspectives. I can completely understand why facilities have such agreements, and I can imagine it is a morale killer for tenured OR nurses to see so many come and go. I am for sure going through this contract with a fine-tooth comb, it’s potentially worth a lot if I were to leave before my commitment is up, regardless if I quit or they fire me! (It is set up to have a certain amount of forgiveness per month) I agree @amoLucia, that’s not too shabby, especially for a new graduate! I feel lucky to have a job at all, and I am excited about the offer : )

    2 year commitment

    I was recently offered an OR fellowship position in which I will do the Periop 101 program (AORN curriculum) over 6 months. I have to sign a 2 year commitment contract with the hospital to account for the cost of the program. I am very interested in working in the OR, and I consider myself very lucky to be offered this position. I also completely understand why they contract the nurses in this program because the cost of training is expensive. I get the reasoning and this is not an issue! I was just wondering if anyone who has done a similar program/been contracted for 2 years had any hesitancy signing the agreement? If you did sign one, did you have any regrets doing so? Again, it’s not I don’t want to take this offer, it’s just a little daunting being contracted as a new grad who has little experience. Thank you for your help!

    Operating Room vs. Med Surg Decision Tool

    I just came across this while looking for OR forums since I'll be starting a OR fellowship program soon...this is awesome, thanks so much for sharing!! Seems to be many pros to the OR...now I'm curious, if you don't mind me asking, does he like working in the OR!?

    Periop 101 Program Questions!

    Thank you @Rose_Queenand @RickyRescueRN for your responses, I appreciate it SO much! This was SUPER helpful, @RickyRescueRN ! You are right that I am excited and would like to have more information at hand now, but knowing that in your case nothing was announced until closer to the program start puts me at ease a little. Thank you for painting a picture of what orientation/residency could look like, and for the book recommendation! I will look into it. Thank you again!!
  8. Hi everyone! I am starting an OR fellowship at a large Pennsylvania network hospital in November. I feel that some of the program details are still a little vague; the job posting isn’t super thorough, and most of the information I’ve gleaned has come from reviewing other OR fellowship webpage’s that have more information. I was also very focused on my responses during the interview, so afterward my recall wasn’t the best…oops! Anyway, I was wondering if anyone here can tell me the “typical” format of a 6-month Periop Program!? We will be following AORN’s curriculum, and I take it that one day a week we will be in the classroom. Is the 6-month program typically inclusive of orientation? Also, because I am a new graduate nurse with no floor experience, can you possibly tell me how residency is incorporated into the program? What does residency entail for this kind of position? I know not every program is the same, but any insight you can provide based on your experience is GREATLY appreciated. Thank you so much!

    Holy Family University Spring 2019

    Hi everyone!!! Sorry I’m late to this thread @brillecI am attending the Summer 2019 cohort too- I can’t wait to meet everyone, orientation is so soon now! I can’t answer your question about a Facebook group since I don’t have a Facebook lol sorry! @alyssawentz33 to answer your question, yes absolutely! I originally applied to the Spring 2019 cohort and didn’t get in, so I reapplied to Summer 2019 (the one starting at the end of April) and got in! I did well in my remaining pre-reqs during that time, which surely helped my chances. My advice is to 100% not give up and to reapply, you can do it! Best of luck!

    I did not get in : ( so back to the drawing board it is! I will try again next cohort or maybe the following; I would prefer to apply early decision, and I doubt I will have new grades by the next early decision deadline. Best of luck to you and any others who are Spring 2019! You are obviously a great student since you were accepted!

    Holy Family University Spring 2019

    Hi there!! I saw one other post from somebody who got in & was inquiring about housing. I applied and am still waiting to hear, as I did not apply by the priority deadline (mostly because of my current class schedule). How about you, did you apply and hear back!? Regardless, best of luck!
