    WHC residency 2018

    Hey Chris! Congrats on passing your boards! I'm currently trying to figure out whether to start on 5C end of Feb or March - look forward to seeing you there either way!

    WHC residency 2018

    Hey @thenurseguy88, I haven't posted enough so don't think I can reply to your PM, but here's the info: Hey! The nursing director on the ortho floor didn't ask any clinical area specific questions - she asked about dealing with a difficult patient, time you made a mistake, time a family member was unsatisfied with their care, things along that line. I tried to work surgery related examples into those to show subject matter knowledge. On ICU they may ask a few more subject matter questions (urgent patient situations, etc), but maybe that's more to find fit for the ICU setting vs. med surg. I interviewed on 12/13, shadowed on the floor 12/22, had an offer on 12/26. In re: pay, it's a union hospital so you can read the contract online that includes hourly and differentials info: just search mwhc collective bargaining agreement. I don't think the pay grade changes with non-RN healthcare experience. I live in DC in Dupont Circle and love it, but it can be pricey and a few miles from the hospital. There are lots of great neighborhoods very close to the hospital that are affordable - I would look at Shaw, Bloomingdale, Columbia Heights. Good luck!

    I applied on 5C (Ortho med-surg). I really liked the nursing director and the nurses I met, and I'm excited to shadow!

    WHC residency 2018

    I just applied to the WHC residency program (I've already graduated). I remember the recruiter saying that they have one start date for all hospital employees each month so there may be some flexibility, but they do expect big cohorts following Dec/May graduation. I already had my interview and will be shadowing on Friday. Good luck, and I'll keep you posted!

    New Grad Virginia Hospital Center VHC

    Hi RachelE510! I applied to VHC online and took the career assessment online. I saw my application status update (highlighted in yellow) yesterday but don't know what to expect next - how long did it take you to hear back from a recruiter? Or was this different than your experience because you went to the career fair? Were you hired into the supplemental float pool? Thanks!
