    I applied to the one with no preference. I hope I made the right decision. Which one did you apply for? Im glad im not the only one that picked med/surg!!! Do you think it will take two more weeks?

    I hope they let us know by April 12th. I looked through last year's posts for this program and it seems that on April 12th pretty much everyone got an email with the decision. It's only 8 days away!!! A little nervous! I saw for the Winter 2013 cohort that began their training in January/feb they took roughly 50% of those who interviewed. About 24-28 spots for Pediatrics and Med/Surg track and less spots for other tracks. This waiting is killing me

    jspb, where did you get the information about the 24-28 spots in peds? I know that 84 interviewed for peds total.

    I saw that info about spots in their January or February newsletter for nurses at Vanderbilt. Unfortunately I haven't been able to see that newsletter again since they seem to take it off and put up the new one for following month when it's time. It had a broken down column of how many initially applied, how many were interviewed, how many got in each track in the end. I realize that was for the Winter 2013 cohort but at least it's a semi reliable ballpark range to look at.

    If you click on each specialty name you can count the number of photos. There were 38 for the winter 2013 pediatric track.

    So, if the program interviewed 80 people or so for peds, and they take around 40 per year, then we have close to a 50% chance of getting in after the interview?

    hopefully! But they don't take the same amount of people each time. It just depends on their needs at the time. I wonder if it was 84 people that interviewed, because there wasn't anyone else there when I was. I guess there could have been a skype interview, but who knows.

    So I have been reading everything trying to get some reassurance but nothing is working...I think it's making my anxiety worse. I saw there were only 4 women's health nurse residents last time. I keep running the I retire through my head and wanting to say something different or add things in....ugh. 2 more days and I hope to know something.
