Has anyone else applied to the fellowship program for experienced RNs at Providence St. Joseph? I know there's a thread for the TIP program for new grads, but wanted to start one for the fellowship program.

Hi! I applied for the fellowship program that starts in January 2021. I chose L&D as my first choice and received a call for an interview through Microsoft teams. Today, about a week and a half later, I received a call letting me know I was selected for their fellowship program in L&D. They said I will receive an email with my job offer in one to two days. 

Have you heard anything back?

@PsychRN138 I haven’t heard anything back yet...My status still says being reviewed by recruiter. What kind of questions did they ask? Were they general questions or specific to L&D? Also could you tell me when you turned in your on demand video interview? I was hoping I still had a chance since my status wasn’t changed to declined 😕

I turned in my video interview on Sept 18th. Then I got a call to schedule a Microsoft teams interview on Oct 12th and had that interview on Oct 15th. They asked me general questions like...tell me about yourself, why do you want to work at St Joe's, why L&D, what do you see yourself doing in 5 years.

I barely got a call yesterday telling me that I was accepted to the fellowship program. Maybe they could barely be making their decisions. I checked online and the application status was update on Oct 27th.

I hope you hear some good news soon. If you have any other questions let me know.

@PsychRN138 thank you so much for the info. Do you happen to know the contact email or number of the recruiter? I applied to St.Joseph in Orange as my first choice too. Since my status hasn’t changed I want to follow up with the recruiter.

I actually got a direct call from the manager of the unit. After my interview with the manager and 2 other people, I got an email asking for 5 references, then waited 1.5 weeks to get a call letting me know I got into the program. The person that called me said she's the hiring coordinator but that there will be someone else emailing me with my offer letter. So I'm not exactly sure if I ever got in touch with an actual recruiter.

@PsychRN138 I'm looking at the program requirements again for the TIP and Fellowship program? Did you turn in 3 letters of recommendation and a letter of intent in addition to a cover letter?

No I only had a cover letter and a list of references attached to my application for the fellowship program. Then, after I did the interview, they sent an email asking for 5 professional references (2 being managers) to complete a survey about your work ethic. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. 🙂

Thank you! I guess it's a new requirement for the next cohort then because I could have sworn I didn't see those requirements last time! For the 5 professional references, do you know if assistant nurse managers count, or does it have to be a manager?

I used a floor supervisor and a manager. I think an assistant nurse manager would definitely count. Wish you the best of luck with your new application! It sounds like they did add a few additional requirements.

Thank you! Yeah it's weird I noticed they added the additional requirements, but they haven't updated the new cohort dates. So at first I thought I missed this with the applications from September. Good luck when you start in January! I actually hope to go into OB too, so hopefully I get it this second time around!
