I haven’t been called for an interview yet, but I also submitted my application at the last minute on the deadline.  Does everyone get interviewed?

Hi, 

I submitted the application in the end of December.  I just checked my application status, still "Screening in Process". And I discovered that the application deadline extended to 04/10/2020:

From my research of other years, it seems like ppl started hearing back around the end of February, and they always extend the deadline to March.  I’ve seen stories of ppl getting acceptance letters in April.  So I’m guessing it’s still pretty early.  The original deadline was January 31st.

do you know for those selected after "screening", go through interview? is interview mandatory to be "officially" accepted (if they like you)

I think it’s a group interview, and no it’s not guaranteed that your accepted if you get called for an interview. Do y’all have lots of nursing experience?

I only have 7 yrs experience. But my coworker who just graduated from SUNY did not have a lot of experience when she was accepted.  She just graduated last yr.
