    Childrens National DC Residency Fall 2020

    @sendhelp It was almost exactly 3 weeks! I interviewed on the 7th and heard back on the 27th. Is anyone else interviewing or has already interviewed with the nicu? @amar2 thank you! I'll message you right now with the info.

    Childrens National DC Residency Fall 2020

    hey guys! just wanted to update again- I got the email with my offer letter from the NICU yesterday (September 21st start date)! So I really think that things are picking back up and they'll get back to people soon, so don't worry!! If anyone has any questions about salary, benefits, etc let me know, I'm more than happy to share so you know what you'd be getting into LOL Also @cc1234567 where are you from? I would suggest either living in Arlington (that's where I live and where most "young professionals" live- it's a little safer/nicer than DC but only a 20 min drive/a few metro stops) or pretty much anywhere in NW or NE DC. NW is typically the nicest part of DC so more expensive, but obviously safer and all of that. I've lived here my whole life so if anyone has questions or needs help with stuff like this, pm me or I can give you my number! I'm so excited for all of us!!

    Childrens National DC Residency Fall 2020

    Did you guys get the email from Jill Board last week? I got an email on Thursday saying that they weren’t moving forward with the application process but that they hoped to resume the process in the coming weeks. One of my friends that works there said that things are starting to pick up again and they aren’t asking nursing to take off so I’m hoping this will be over soon!

    Childrens National DC Residency Fall 2020

    It was on zoom! There were a couple educators and a manager. Originally 11 people were on the zoom invite and I was freaking out LOL but only 4 people actually interviewed me so it wasn't too bad! I've heard a lot of people's statuses are changing so I'm sure you guys will hear soon!

    Childrens National DC Residency Fall 2020

    hey guys! just wanted to update again- I just had my interview, everyone was SO nice!! They asked all of the general questions like strengths, a moment that stood out to you in nursing school, what you do outside of work, a pet peeve that you have, etc. Nothing crazy so don't worry. They said that they can't give any formal offers until the hiring freeze is over but they also kind of said (without actually saying it LOL) that they would give you some kind of verbal confirmation that they wanted to hire you. But for all the NICU people, they said they fully intend on having the residency start September 21st and they're hiring around 15 people! Hope this helps- if anyone has questions let me know!

    Childrens National DC Residency Fall 2020

    thank you! I'm super nervous but really excited, this is literally my dream job so fingers crossed LOL. I'm interviewing for the NICU! Also side note- I talked to the NICU manager on Monday and she told me that they're getting in touch with people who are reaching out to them, so call HR or do whatever to get in touch so they know you're really interested!

    Childrens National DC Residency Fall 2020

    hey guys! just wanted to update- I got a call from HR yesterday to schedule my interview (tomorrow at 11 am)! I'm lowkey freaking out LOL has anyone heard of specific questions they're asking? I'll report back regardless So yeah it sounds like they're finally starting to get back to people! Just fyi, the call I got was from "Gaithersburg, MD" so I didn't answer it the first time LOL. So if you get a call from there, it's probably them!

    Childrens National DC Residency Fall 2020

    I'm not sure if you were asking me or not LOL but mine changed on April 16th! I really don't think it means anything so I wouldn't worry.

    Childrens National DC Residency Fall 2020

    Hey guys! I applied to the NICU too and my status says evaluation in progress- fingers crossed! I actually work there now and we were told that, like everyone has said, they're in a hiring freeze but they would still interview and extend offers, it would just be contingent on the hiring freeze ending. So they'd basically say "we want to offer you a position starting September 21st (that's when they told me the NICU was starting) as long as the freeze ends by then. If it doesn't, you would start as soon as it's over". Hope this helps! Good luck to everyone- it sounds like there's a lot of us NICU people here LOL
  10. Hey everyone! I'm applying to the NICCU too (and also wondering what their actual level is LOL)! I did a pre-screening thing for Children's in Atlanta and it really wasn't too bad, just awkward so I'm hoping this is the same way. @okwTX20 I'm from out of state too (Washington DC) so we're in the same boat- fingers crossed! Is anyone applying to other hospitals in the area or San Diego? I applied to Rady but not sure where else to apply! Good luck to everyone

    Vanderbilt Summer 2020 Nurse Residency

    Yep, I got waitlisted too. I’m not local and it seems like NICU is one of the most competitive so I’m not surprised, I knew it was a long shot! Good luck to everyone interviewing, my fingers are crossed for all of you!!

    Vanderbilt Summer 2020 Nurse Residency

    Me either! I'm checking my email every 5 minutes, it's driving me crazy! Do you guys know if they only tell you if they want you to interview this week or if they'll tell you if you weren't selected too?

    Vanderbilt Summer 2020 Nurse Residency

    Do you guys think they'll continue to contact people over the weekend or should I stop checking my email every 2 minutes and wait until monday

    Vanderbilt Summer 2020 Nurse Residency

    Congrats to everyone that has gotten an interview!! So did they not give you options for different days? They just gave you one single day? I applied for the NICU so I'm literally checking my email every 30 seconds and getting a little worried that I haven't heard anything yet Fingers crossed!! I'm hoping and praying for all of us!

    Vanderbilt Summer 2020 Nurse Residency

    @samkit102092 oh okay! Then we're in the same boat, I haven't been to Nashville either but I've heard it's amazing. Glad to know I'm not alone! @Jonesp75 thank you so much for all of that information, it does sound awesome!! I've never heard of having two separate NICUs but it makes sense, and it's really cool that we could do both. Is the Children's hospital like a separate location than the main hospital or are they connected?

    Vanderbilt Summer 2020 Nurse Residency

    @samkit102092 That's awesome! I applied to the NICU too. Do you like the unit? I'm assuming you do if you applied! I really don't know much about it (I'm applying from DC and never been to Vanderbilt). Everything looks great online but obviously you know much better as you've worked there!

    CHOA New Grad Nurse Residency May 2020

    I'm external and applied to the NICU a couple weeks ago and haven't heard anything. It's nice to know I'm not the only one Also yes it'd be so nice to learn the hourly pay and differentials! I'm currently in DC so trying to figure out pay at places out of state is really hard. Places I thought would be similar (i.e. Vanderbilt) pays much less than DC, so I'm hoping Atlanta isn't the same!
  18. Hey guys! Congrats to everyone that's interviewing/accepted positions! I'm graduating in May and want to apply to the NICU but I can't find the position online. There's one that says Nurse Residency Program- various units but for the location it says Howard County General Hospital. Did anyone apply through that and just specify that they want to work at the main hospital? I'm not sure what to do because I really want to apply but I don't know how

    Vanderbilt Summer 2020 Nurse Residency

    All of my references finally responded (if anyone is having issues with people not responding, I think the first email went to spam so I resent the automated email and they all responded that day. So I'd try that if you're having trouble!) so my application is complete! I guess they start scheduling interviews at the end of February, right? And that's if you even get an interview lol. Also, I'm from Washington D.C. so I really don't know a ton about Vanderbilt- does anyone know what new grad pay is like?

    Vanderbilt Summer 2020 Nurse Residency

    When you guys submitted your references, do you know if they went to people's spam folders? I know some people have said that their own emails from vanderbilt like the second part of the application went to their spam but I'm not sure about the references. Only two of my references have responded and it's been over a week, so I'm not sure if I should resend the email or email them separately and tell them to check their spam Also, it sounds like there's a few of us that put NICU first, that's so cool!! Good luck to you guys, I hope we all get interviews

    UVA New Graduate Nurse Residency Program Feb 2020

    Oh that's good to know! I'm glad you were impressed, from everything I've seen online it looks great. And yeah I would assume it's slightly lower than DC but who knows! How was your interview in the NICU? And can I ask why you chose to go with 4west instead? Thank you so so much again for all of your help and advice, this is all so helpful!!

    UVA New Graduate Nurse Residency Program Feb 2020

    Oh that's awesome!! How did you like their NICU? I don't really know anything about it, I'm just applying to a bunch of level 4's and was told by some other nurses who got their MSNs at UVA to apply! I looked up the open house and it said it was in November, which seems so early but that's okay. I'm just hoping I get an interview! Just out of curiosity (and if you don't mind me asking) is the pay pretty similar to other places? I'm mostly applying in D.C. (children's, georgetown, etc) so I'm not sure if it's less because Charlottesville is much farther from DC!

    UVA New Graduate Nurse Residency Program Feb 2020

    hey! I found your post because I'm graduating in May and just applied for UVA's residency program starting in the summer! I was just wondering if you ended up interviewing/taking the job at UVA? Also congratulations on graduating!!

    @dga123 do you remember any of the questions from the digital interview?! I'm about to do mine and I'm nervous, I've never done this before!!

    Pediatric Nurse Residency NYC

    hey! I'm graduating in May so I'm currently applying/interviewing to places too (for NICU though). I actually wanted to apply to Morgan Stanley but I can't find the application or anything about their residency program online! Can you tell me where you found it? Thank you!!
