    UCH New Grad Program Winter 2017

    Hey BSN2b, No electronic references were requested for my cohort. The only references I provided were those that were part of the application packet. And of course I brought extra references to my interview.

    Nursing Job Outlook

    Hey dbsum, I have a BSN, but like you said theres a lot of competition for jobs so I got a job as a CNA to get my foot in the door. The interview process was pretty intimidating, 6-8 managers and educators interview candidates one at a time for about 30-40min.

    Receiving license # after NCLEX

    Hey jenpint, yeah the information you received is about right, I was told within 14 business days... Sometimes they might make an exception for you if you need your License number to keep a job but outside of that its a waiting game...

    Nursing Job Outlook

    The UCH new grad program does take new grads with their ADN. I'm in the program right now and there are 9 new grads from Pikes Peak Community College (ADN).

    Sorry Dbsum, I don't know anything about the facilities you mentioned.

    Nursing Job Outlook

    Colorado's state Mental Health Hospital is in Pueblo Colorado and they hire ADN's. And they are always looking for people. I work in the UCHealth system and I know that their new grad program hires ADNs provided they sign a contract saying they will get their BSN within 3 years. On a side note the UCHealth new grad program is extremely competitive so it will difficult to secure a position with them. The Centura health care system also has stand alone psych facilities and they hire ADNs, I believe you have to sign a contract with them requiring you to get a BSN within a certain time frame.

    FAST NCLEX RESULTS

    I can't speak for other states, but the Colorado BON and specifically the Licensing supervisor for my application has been great at responding to my emails within the same day and if she didn't answer her phone she called me back within 48hrs. I say its worth a shot if anyone who is anxious like I was about their NCLEX status to make a few phone calls or send out an email.

    FAST NCLEX RESULTS

    I wanted to put it out there that I was able to get quick results without paying for it. i know that pearson vue offers quick results 48hrs after your exam but I couldn't wait that long (I know I'm not the only one who feels that way lol). So what I did was call my state licensing board and talk directly to the licensing supervisor in charge of my application. I did this about 25hrs after my exam to make sure that there was plenty of time for pearsonvue to complete the grading of my test and transmit my results to the state board. The licensing supervisor immediately confirmed that they had received my results and she was also able and willing to provide me with the status of those results. I know that some people try the PVT trick to see if they passed or not, but it is highly debatable whether or not this is accurate, so try calling (or emailing) the state board instead... Good luck everyone!

    UCH New Grad Program Winter 2017

    Hey guys! I was offered a job on all the units I interviewed for and I've accepted the position in the ED! Good luck to everyone!

    UCH New Grad Program Winter 2017

    Just had my interview for the ED! It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I was interviewed by a panel of 6 nurses all were very nice and there weren't any scenario based questions. It was mainly questions to get an idea of who you are, your work ethic and why you want to work at UCHealth. I have an interview for UCHealth's acute care units later this week and an interview for UCHealths inpatient psych facility next week, I'm crossing my fingers that one of these interviews will stick! Good luck everyone!

    UCH New Grad Program Winter 2017

    No, I haven't heard anything yet:no:
  13. Wanted to start a thread for people who applied to the Colorado Springs UCH Nurse Residency program starting February 2017 to share information and their experience through the application process. The recruiter told me she would be sending out interview emails by the end of December thru the beginning of January. She also told me they typically get around 100 applications for the February cohort. Anyone have any other info about the program or the application process???
