  1. If you're not familiar, the PECARN Head Injury/Trauma Algorithm is great for reassuring parents, and when advocating for/against imaging in the pediatric population: https://www.mdcalc.com/pecarn-pediatric-head-injury-trauma-algorithm

    I think I'm going to be let go from Orientation :((

    MD Communication/Communication has been super tough for me during orientation as well. I have been working really hard to get over the idea that I shouldn't speak up or reach out to MDs because I'm new. That line of thinking is just not acceptable--its imperative that WE start that dialogue with the docs and not wait for them to communicate with us.

    Integrity - Should I say something

    When I was in school, I witnessed a classmate do something that would have warranted immediate dismissal from the program if I had reported it. Even though I personally did not like this individual, soon thereafter her behavior caught up to her enough that she was pretty severely punished and re-educated on the issue. Even though I didn't like her, I know she's going to be a good nurse, and ultimately I'm glad she got the reminder about appropriate behavior without her life having to be completely de-railed. If I had ruined this misguided but well-intentioned nurse's career that she had been working so hard for, I couldn't have lived with myself. I think you should really think long and hard about whether this is truly about integrity for you.

    Kicked out of BSN program in final semester

    What kind of school--assuming there was no breach of your school's code of conduct--would not let you graduate because of one failed course?! Was it your capstone that you failed? Would it be an option to take an incomplete until you could finish whatever you missed?

    Seattle Children's Nurse Residency 2019

    I got an email with an invitation to interview at midnight last night. Not sure if I’m taking it because I am worried about the licensing timeline. Fingers crossed for everyone in this thread, and definitely keep us updated!

    I think we just won't hear back. Or maybe we'll hear back in a few months once they've finished the entire process. That's been my experience.

    Seattle Children's Nurse Residency 2019

    I have not heard and I’m not surprised. A LOT of people at the open house were practicum students or Seattle Children’s Employees. I have a feeling they only take a small handful of people outside that applicant pool.

    I really wanted to apply to ACFP too, but I decided to just go for the critical care track since my practicum and work experience is in a peds ED. I applied to ED, CICU and PICU. From the brief interaction I got at the open house, it seemed like Seattle Children's is a fun place to work with lots of opportunity. I really hope we both get interviews! May 17th is so late though! Flights will be so expensive by then!!!

    Less Saturated areas of CA?

    Thank you all for the replies. I am a military spouse and we are actually going to Seattle now, but will probably be headed to SD in the next few years. This is great info for any new grads looking to move to the general area!

    Hospitals paying for your stay?

    This happened to me too just last week. Same region of the country, also a New Grad position. They payed for my mileage and hotel. I was blown away that they were willing to do it and would have loved to work for the organization but sadly have to relocate to the west coast. I also recently had a Seattle area hospital offer me a relocation package. I guess it's not totally unheard of.

    Virginia Mason Residencies 2019

    Hi all. Has anyone gone through the hiring process at Virginia Mason for New Grads? I got a phone interview, but I don't know whether they phone screen everyone or only people they are interested in. Any insight would be appreciated.

    Swedish Medical Center Residency March 2019

    Congrats on your offer! I don't have an answer for you as I am planning on relocating to Seattle in May. Would you mind telling me a little about your timeline/why you chose Swedish?

    Hi Nursesandiego! Thanks for the info. I am graduating in May 2019. I have similar stats-- 3.9 GPA, 300 hour Internship, 180 hour Practicum, work experience as an ED Tech and CNA in subacute rehab. No license though, obviously. How long did you wait before expanding your search to SNF's? Are you finding your current job to be a valuable experience? Have you applied to any hospitals outside of San Diego? How long did it take you to get your license?
