  1. Children's National DC Spring 2021

    Congratulations! I'm so excited for you!! It's the best job in the whole world. I started in the fall of 2020 so I finished orientation almost a year ago (March 2021). It was absolutely the hardest thing I've ever gone through but you learn SO much a...
  2. Childrens National DC Residency Fall 2020

    Hey! Sorry I'm just now seeing this! I've been in their residency program for almost 7 months now and absolutely love it. I just came off of orientation a couple weeks ago so I'm on my own now- it's scary but amazing!! Basically, there are four...
  3. Children's National DC Spring 2021

    It's really not too bad! For the NICU residency specifically, we do 3 weeks of days and then 3 weeks of nights in each phase. After you're done with all 3 phases and are on your own, you self schedule so you can do as many days and nights as you want...

    Hey! Congratulations on your offer (and everyone else who's gotten an offer too)!! It's an incredible hospital, I absolutely love working at Children's and I'm sure you guys will too! So keep in mind with the $29 an hour, you also get ICU pay (an ext...
  5. Children's National DC Spring 2021

    1. I was local! I'm not sure that that makes a huge difference though, I'm pretty sure around half of my cohort was local and the other half wasn't (they were from all over the place!). 2. I did get my capstone in the NICU (at a different hospi...
  6. Children's National DC Spring 2021

    Hey everyone! I work in the NICU at Children's (I just started their new grad residency in September) so I'm more than happy to help if anyone has questions! Every unit is different but just for reference, I applied in early March, interviewed in ear...

    Thanks so much! You'll definitely need the standard stuff- resume, cover letter, letter(s) of recommendation (I think I submitted two but I don't think they had a required number). I'm pretty sure that's all you need! Feel free to message me if you h...

  10. 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...
  11. 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 sa...
  12. Childrens National DC Residency Fall 2020

    They asked all the standard interview questions! Why do you want to work at Children's, why the NICU, what do you do for fun outside of work, what are good qualities of a NICU nurse, what's your biggest pet peeve, tell us about a time when you dealt ...
  13. 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...
  14. 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, e...
  15. Childrens National DC Residency Fall 2020
