    Question fo those who were selected. I am just doing my application for the summer program, but I don't have any work, volunteer, or leadership experience. Will this count against me? Was anyone who was selected in the same predicament?

    Hey guys! I am from tennessee and was offered a position in the adult surgical tract, even though I applied for the adult critical care tract. I have took the position after much deliberation. Congratulations to everyone who was offered a position!

    Do it. Volunteer. It's not a must to be accepted, but it will help you in the points standing and thats how they decide.

    Thanks. I have already submitted my online application, so volunteer work won't show up on it, but I guess it's better to be able to say that I have volunteered.

    I applied to the Pediatric Track for the Nurse Residency Program. I actually already have my RN as well as MSN, but I have less than 6 months experience as an RN since I went straight through school. Additionally, I've only worked in primary care in private clinics, so I decided to go back to get experience in acute care to eventually become an acute care PNP (which requires acute care experience). I e-mailed the program, and they told me I am eligible because of having less than 6 months experience. I've gotten 2 out of the 3 check-marks and have submitted my transcript; I hope that my final reference (who has confirmed she will do it) submits her form soon. I wish everybody the best of luck; Vanderbilt is an excellent place to learn and work!

    Hey guys! I am glad to see you have started a post for the next residency program. I am a nurse at Vanderbilt and am one of the preceptors used for the med-surg track. You guys have chosen a wonderful program! Our nurse residents are often our favorite employees. Although I was not a nurse resident myself I wanted to make myself available for any questions you have about the hospital or about Nashville. I moved to Nashville about a year and a half ago and didn't have any real contacts so it was a hard transition. I would love to help make yours a little easier! Hope to talk to some of you soon!

    In case you guys need help with your apt search these are some I know of, lived in, or looked at.

    Lenox Village Town Center
    Grand View Apartments
    The Lexington
    Avondale at Kennesaw Farms - Great apts and very affordable but not really near much
    The Landings of Brentwood- where I currently live- great apts about 30 min from work and in the middle of all sorts or food and shopping and celebrity homes. Please mention my name if you come here!
    Polo Park - I used to live there and it's decent. I am not sure if it was just my building (I was back in the woods) but I had a bit of a bug problem. It is in a good spot though and about 20 min to work.
    Waterford Place - Decent and afordable

    I haven't seen these but they are affordable and in a safe area-
    Hampton Chase Apts
    The Hamptons at Woodland Point
    Mission Bellevue Ridge
    Blackstone, Fairmont and Lee apartments - Very close to vandy
    Westboro - I have heard good things and also very close to Vandy
    Park West at Hillwood - I have not seen these but one of our residents lives here and she really likes it.

    Hope this helps narrow down some options!

    Hi all, I am a nursing student in CA, planning to take my NCLEX after I graduate in June and was wondering if the Vanderbilt Nurse Residency Program accepts licensure from another state such as California? This program sounds like a wonderful opportunity, and I wish to partake in a residency program as such. Please let me know!
    Thank you so much!
