  1. Hi everyone, just wanted to inform everyone that I have rejected the offer, something very unexpected came up in my life, and its best for me to stay in Florida, so that means for those still trying there is another spot that will open up. I wish everyone good luck on the program!!!!:heartbeat
  2. Just wanted to tell everyone that I got an offer, but I haven't accepted yet I have until the 5th of January to respond, There are so many things that happened in this last month, that I don't know if moving to Washington DC is the best option for me right now. But good luck to all of those who are starting out!
  3. I interviewed on the 8th, but I didn't have one of the letters of reference, plus I told them that I will be out of the country until the 5th of January, so I will know once I get back If I got the job or not I guess. The interview process me was better than I expected it to be, just a little bit long thats all. As for the cost of living the pay is 27.67 an hour plus differentials, and they pay you for the 8 holidays regardless if you work them or not :). Well see what happens.
  4. Hello everyone! I just came home from my interview and I think it well really well, I only got to interview with the nurse manager from a stroke unit, and not he other units I had for my first priorities. She gave me a tour of the Unit, and her personality made the whole process much easier, but I was still a little bit nervous. Some tips for the people coming to Washington Hospital Center for their interview: 1) Eat before you get there, the whole process might take 2 hours, since you interview with a nurse manager and a recruiter, and you might tour the unit as well. 2) If you can sit on the chairs on the isles since they will call your name, and you will have to go towards the side of the auditorium and is easier to get around. 3)Review clinical stuff, such what kind of assestments and interventions should be done for certain patients, and what kind of things the doctor might order. 4)Everyone was really nice, so don't stress out too much. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!! ILL LET YOU KNOW IF I GOT HIRED.:spin:
  5. So I changed my interview date for the 8th of this month, I will be traveling in December 16. My Choices were Nicu, Post Partum and Medsurg. I really want Nicu but at this point I'll take anything since I finished school back in May. So I will let you guys know how it goes :) Thanks Ferretrodeo I am actually reviewing the threads about the interview process right now, hope it helps :)

    Where Is The Worst place to work in Florida?

    I've been looking for a job since June, and not even one interview, I have good grades, and I am just so frustated with my situation, I thought that having a bachelor's was going to land me a job, I guess I was wrong

    Vanderbilt Nurse Residency winter 2011 cohort

    Hello everyone I was put on the waiting list for an interview for the peds track, I don´t know how it works but I hope they give me a chance to interview at least, for those who didn´t get it I am sorry, I think that the lack of volunteering that maybe some of us had made an impact, plus I know of some others that have worked there before so at least have a foot in he door. Congrats to those who made it!
