Dell Children's Nurse Residency July 2018

  1. Hi everyone!!

    I'm starting a thread for the incoming July 2018 Cohort! I thought it would be nice to get each others experiences with the interviewing process and steps to hiring! My main pick is the Pediatric Emergency Department.


    Also, I was invited to the Open house next week on Feb. 23 and will be flying in to attend that. Is anyone else attending this?

    Does anyone know how competitive it is? Do we need externship / CNA experience? Or need to have some sort of connection?

    You are NOT required to have any externship/CNA experience. However, the recruiter I talked to (she was Peds ED) said they prefer to hire/prefer people with ED experience. It seems to be very competitive like most residency programs, but it also depends on the department you want. I do know they also like people who go to the open house because it shows "initiative" and many people have said that they feel that if you don't/didn't go to the open house you have a slimmer chance to get offered an interview or position. HOWEVER, that is just what people have said and I'm sure you still can get an interivew/position if you didn't go, but it would've best to have attended.

    I don't have any experience but I'm applying! I'm interested in anything Peds or Women's health other than surgery! I'm from Louisiana and graduate with my BSN in May! I went to the 3-4 session of the open house!
