UCSF New Grad Spring 2022

Updated:   Published

Hi all! Thought I would start this thread for the upcoming new grad cohort at UCSF for Spring 2022. 

From what I've seen on the website, the application period opens on Saturday, January 8 and goes until Saturday, January 15. No lists of which departments are hiring this go around. Must have your license by March 4th. The program starts on April 4th.  

I applied last go around, but I didn't have a test date yet. Hoping I can get in this time! 

Good luck to all!

Thank you for starting this thread! Did they require you to have a test date at the time of application? From the Webinar it sounds like if we are selected for interview we must keep the recruiter updated with our test date? They were vague about that. I am still waiting on my official transcript from my school and ATT but should be able to take the NCLEX in Feb.

I can't find where the information is regarding what is needed to apply to the New Nurse Residency Training Program (NNRTP) and I want to make sure I have everything ready to apply... Does anyone know where to find the requirements? How many LOR are needed etc... 

Anyone had offers from UCSF or Zuckerberg? I’m trying to get an idea of what the RN residency pay is. May be relocating to the Bay area after I graduate fall 22.

LORs aren't required, but you can still choose to upload them to your application. If you get selected for an interview and they are considering you, they're going to ask you for 5 references.

Application says CA RN license required by March 4. But from the webinar it sounds like as long as you take and pass your NCLEX sometime in March and communicate that with the recruiter then you should be fine.

I applied to about everything but peds stuff. So nervous and really hoping to get a position offers day shift. If anyone here reading has been accepted in a past cohort, how many do they usually hire per unit? Also, very excited about the recent pay bump! Woo hoo! LOL

From the information session they had, they mentioned that they plan to do interviews in late January so most likely around that time!

I got an interview in the Fall, didn't get the position because my answers weren't in depth enough. So for all that do get an interview, be sure to be in depth on you answers! Good luck to all!!

Thank you for the tip! Were the panel interview questions behavioral based?

Scenario based questions, pretty basic.
