    UCSD New Grad Feb 2020

    I applied to almost all of them. My status says others more competitive for tele/PCU as of the Dec 30. My apps for cardiac PCU were referred to hiring department as of Dec 20th and Med/Surg referred to hiring department as of 12/17. I haven't gotten any emails about them or calls to interview. Has anyone else interviewed or accepted a job for these units?? Thanks

    Sharp New Grad RN Program Spring 2020

    I'm an external applicant, recently commented that I put ICU then progressive. I applied on the 16th but it still says under consideration. Ugh the suspense kills!

    UCLA New Graduate Residency Winter 2019-2020

    I am applying but noticed there wasn't an option for Cardiac ICU, was it that way for everyone else??
  5. Hello, I am currently a nursing student in Nebraska and work as a tech on a cardiac progressive care unit. Unfortunately, I got kind of screwed and didn't get CVICU for preceptorship but I am on a Heart & Vascular Unit that is considered med/surg tele, but also takes pt with LVAD's, heart and lung transplants, art lines, drips, temp pacemakers, chest tubes, fresh CABG's from CVICU, etc. I'm apply to different places in California that I hear are very competitive. What can I do to become more competitive? I think I'll get my ACLS in November, but what other certifications can I get as a nursing student? Anything specific on resume? Organizations (currently a member of Sigma Theta Tau)? Any feedback really appreciated!
  6. I'm currently in nursing school and will graduate December 7, 2019 and live in Nebraska. I work on Cardiac Progressive Care Unit as a care tech and know I want to work cardiac either progressive or ICU. I was wondering what my chances are of getting a job in San Diego as a new grad that is from out of state? Will it be harder or impossible to get a job on a cardiac floor in San Diego in my position? Is there anything I can do to increase my chances right now? I would really appreciate any feedback and advice!
  7. I'm a senior at UNL and I had a rough couple years in college being diagnosed halfway through with ADHD, getting mono twice, 5 concussions and the list goes on. So I don't have a competitive GPA, for prereqs my GPA is 3.05. If I get all A's this semester, which seems pretty likely since I have easy classes, it'll get up to like 3.35 or 3.37 something like that and after next semester I'll have like a 3.45 but still, their average acceptance GPA is 3.6. I volunteer at a medical clinic every week for 3-4 hours, but I also shadow health care providers and build hours as a CNA all at the same time. I know a couple professors that loved me so I know they'd write good letters of recommendation as well as a health care provider from the medical clinic, but is that going to be enough? I'm super stressed out that it won't be enough only because of my GPA. I don't want to move to Omaha so I prefer Lincoln but I'd be willing to go to Kearney. Does anyone have advice on what would make me stand out even more? Or do I even have a chance at all?
