Spring 2014 New Grad Residency Programs -Denver

Posted

Hi all,

I am finishing up a BSN program in Arizona and will be moving to the Denver area after graduation. My husband has been transferred and is already working there.

Thus far I have applied to UCH's residency and Children's. I did my preceptorship in a level 3 NICU and really hope I can get a position in a NICU. Wondering if there are any others out there not so patiently waiting? I thought obsessing on here might keep me from checking my application status 20 times a day. I know they posted time frames for scheduling interviews - doesn't seem to help:->. Gonna be a long couple of months.

Also, anyone applied/accepted to these programs (or others) in the past have any tips, advice, words of wisdom. I'm a strong student academically, lots of volunteer work with children, 2nd degree mature (aka older) student. Any insights on the type of students that usually get accepted to these programs?

Hello, I am also a second degree new grad applying at UCH and Children's. I have already submitted my application to children's but am running into a problem with UCH. I have filled out the application part but when i click on "attach a document" on the right it says my file is to big. I know on the application FAQ page it says there is no size limit for the PDF/word file since it must contain all supplemental items. So I assume I am trying to attach it to the incorrect place. Did either of you run into this problem? Thanks!!

Jude19 I had the same issue. I ended up emailing them. I wonder if it was because they recently changed their application system.

Thanks! Did you get a letter form UCH similar to the one from Children's? This process is nerve wracking!

Nothing for me from UCH. I got an email from Children's a couple of weeks ago that indicated that I was being sent on to hiring managers. But if it was via snail mail I won't get it until my husband brings the mail home this weekend (mail is going to our address in CO but I'm still in AZ). When I checked my application status last it says that I am being "actively considered with other applicants". Thankfully, I guess, my public health class is crazy busy (16 weeks crammed into 7) and I'm trying to study for the NCLEX so my time to obsess is limited. Best of luck.

OK. Same here. My Children's status is still "screen" and I have the same status as you mentioned at UHC. I will let you know if I a status changes if you will do the same. It sounds like we have similar situations. I am in Austin, but my husband was transferred and has already moved to Denver. We will be joining him a month from today!

Jude19 Definitely will let you know if I have any changes. It's too funny we are in the same boat . . . we are in the countdown too. My boys ask me every night "how many days?". I have a count down going that includes days of class remaining, days till pinning, days till graduation, and days till we are in CO all together. Can not wait!

mine still says screen too... I have a feeling it will be like that for a while because they don't do interview until Jan right?
