    Providence TIP RN Residency August 2020

    Same! My thoughts are we will hopefully hear something after the application period is over, which will be this Monday. Their application period is very long.

    Some of us received prescreening video interviews or text interviews last week. Mine was text.

    Thank you so much! I’m going to keep applying, but I don’t want to get my hopes up. It just seems like most people don’t make it into peds during their first round of applications, which makes sense. They want dedicated, experienced nurses working with little ones. I just hope my dream job is in the stars sooner than later.

    Oh I know it’s a huge jump, but PICU and NICU seemed like even bigger jumps from what I’m used to of the available options, when I did research before deciding which unit to apply for. I have been looking into non fellowship positions, but it seems like they want previous peds experience as a requirement, so I never applied to them. But that’s good to know they will hire external through non-fellowship. That gives me more hope. I do really feel like I probably won’t get hired into peds until next year, esp with the low census happening.

    Yeah I work in tele with adults, which is why I thought it would be easier to transition to CVICU of the options available. If they Med/surg peds Open I would have applied to that. But everything happens for a reason. I’m applying to TIPS peds for sept 2020. And a recruiter for chla reached out to me on linked in but I missed the app period for fall 2020, so she told me to reach out to her during the next app period. So my peds future might be with CHLA next year. Who knows?

    Thanks for that! Good luck! I had a feeling that I wouldn’t be picked. I’ll try for Feb cohort.

    Let us know if you get an offer or if you find out the interviews for CVICU are done. I applied to CVICU fellowship but haven’t heard anything back yet.

    That’s insane, does that mean that all the ED positions were filled in less than two days after applications closed?

    Thank you so much! I actually have my RN license and have been working as a nurse over a year now with adults on a medical-surgical unit, I am just finishing up my BSN currently. But my passion is working with newborn/infants and pediatric patients. Thank you so much!

    Does anyone know if you need to have BSN during the application period? I will finish my BSN this Summer before the cohort starts. Plus, I already have a Bachelor's of Science in Neurobiology. I tried to reach out to human resources and I haven't heard anything back.

    Thanks, girl! It’s a whole new feeling of power and independence almost.

    So update on the topic I did end up wearing Afro pigtails with a scar type headband to work and no one said anything negative. No one treated me differently. And the patients all acted the same. I think if I wore them when first starting out on the floor, it would be different. But I have more confidence in my job. My coworkers love me and know I’m smart and independent. And if you carry that confidence in to your patient interactions they don’t view you as dumb or young.

    Thank you! I appreciate your quick response and advice. Doing something to offset my hair style could help with my youthful look.

    Black woman wearing puff pigtails to work

    I was wondering if it’s unprofessional to wear puffball pigtails to work. I am an African American woman with short hair and i want to wear my hair in a protective style between having braids at work. I also look very young as a new nurse. I want to look professional and be respected by coworkers and patients, but I also want to take care of my hair so it can grow and breathe. Has anyone ever worn pigtails to work? Thanks!
