    JPS July 2020 Residency

    As of right now, it still looks like we are starting on time. We just got our letters regarding the BSN completion requirement date. I scheduled myself super light these last two schedule periods because I thought I would be completing my preceptorship for school this month. But, when I worked last my floor actually cancelled nurses for the shift and that NEVER happens.

    Thank you! Just trying to plow through the remainder of this semester. Dying to know if there are going to be changes to the residency start date, but I am sure they haven't determined that yet. How are things on the ground for you?

    I have a friend who has multiple interviews scheduled next week. She is already an employee there. I haven't heard anything yet, but have several listed as "application under review" still.

    I applied for 6 positions on the February 14th round of applications. Five say "application under review" and one says "application received". I received the Korn Ferry email on Friday, but had previously completed it and haven't heard anything else yet.

    I got called for a second one and had it on Friday on the unit. When she scheduled it I asked if she had any info from other units and one did not put me on the list and the other had not got back to her yet.

    Advent Health Contract

    Curious to see how it worked out? I was going to suggest to ask the new company about a "relocation" bonus- which could then be used to pay off the contract.

    I think we should start hearing something mid-month.

    John Peter Smith/JPS Nurse Residency July 2019

    I have applied for the July 2020 program and would love to hear from anyone currently going through - the good, the bad, questions to ask? Pay range? Other hospitals have posted, but I haven't seen anything on JPS. Full disclosure -- I currently work there in a clerical position.

    Parkland Residency Summer 2020

    I applied to four spots! I really don't want to drive to Dallas, BUT I have to get a job right after graduation so I am applying to every residency program. Good luck everyone!

    BSN vs ADN and Residency

    Hello Everybody. My plans have been to enter a two year program beginning in the Fall of 2018. I am recently reading that with an ADN you pretty much need to get into and complete a one year residency program to even get hired by a hospital. In the meantime, over the last few years, I have been working on my BS (General Studies) and have accumulated 88 out of 129 hours. So here are my questions: 1. If I get my BS and then do a one year second degree to get my BSN, will a residency program still be as necessary to get hired? 2. Is the talk of residency programs to get hired, over-hyped? 3. By BS will take three semesters (full time) to complete, and then two to three to complete the fast track BSN (and cost more), vs 4 semesters to complete ADN --- feeling torn on what to do..weigh in with your experiences. Thank you!
