    JPS July 2020 Residency

    My second interview was with P4, Tower 7 did not pick me for a second interview and she was waiting to hear from E3.

    Texas Health Versant July 2020

    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.

    JPS July 2020 Residency

    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.

    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!

    Weatherford ADN Fall 2017

    I have heard it is definitely 6 weeks. I applied; I know I am short on points for Fall 2017, but figured why not? You never know!! I am currently taking my last two pre-reqs, so I only get one point for each of those. If I don't get in for Fall 2017, I will reapply. Did anyone apply for Bridgeport campus? Anyone know the points for previous semesters at Bridgeport?

    Weatherford College - ADN vs LVN - Campus Options

    Help -- anyone? Need info as app deadline is approaching!
  16. I was planning on applying to the Weatherford College ADN program for Fall 2017, but I am starting to doubt that I have enough points. Final two pre-reqs are being completed this semester, so I only get one point each for those. Need one more class to get 3 bonus points. The rest of my points are maxed out, except TEAS which I am planning on retaking. So my questions are -- should I try applying for the LVN and then bridging to the ADN -- this will require a flight to take the ACCUPLACER as I am currently working out of state on a contract job? Are fewer points typical to get into the other campus locations (Bridgeport and Granbury)? Are my chances higher at those locations if I am low on points? A friend told me she got in with 26, but I am seeing others say they didn't get in with 30. HELP! Thank you!
