USC Keck New Graduate RN Residency Program September 2021

Posted

Hi all, I am trying to make sure there is a thread for this Fall application period. May 31- June 8. Who else applied? Was the link easy to find? How do you feel? Was you able to attach everything?

For me, I filled out both ICU & Tele application to be sure. I am skeptical of how this process going to turn out. Furthermore, I did in fact had trouble finding the site. I am hopeful for an interview.

 

Good luck guys!

I wonder how long does it take for application review.

Hello, I applied as well for the September 2021 group. Based off of last years posts it seems like people get a questionnaire like a week after the application was submitted and then interviews were sometime in July.

Hi,

I am so nervous. OK, looking forward to this questionnaire. I hope I get a response/interview in July.

My app still says, "under review". 🙂

Hi! I'm a little confused about where to attach cover letter and personal statement? It said in the instructions to include both, but I didn't see a place for either of those in the app. Any advice? :)

I applied a couple days ago as well to both ICU and Tele postings. I was able to combine my resume, cover letter, and personal statement into one pdf file. I think my transcripts were attached separately but I don’t quite remember. I am nervous too. I’ve been applying to many new grad RN programs in California since March and have only had 1 interview. Tbh I’m starting to lose hope but then again I’m pretty hard on myself LOL, but I know we gotta keep pushing. Good luck to everyone! 🙂

I attached all of my files where you submit your resume! Hope this helps!

I attached all files under resume. It allows up to 5 MB to upload if I'm not mistaken. However, I made sure it displayed the right titles, I.e...Resume', Unofficial transcripts, Recommendation letter, Personal statement etc. I hope this helps 😉

I have only applied to USC RN New Grad Program so far. Keep hope alive. 😉

Hi,

I applied the day the app was released and as of yesterday my application status changed to "under consideration." 

Good luck to all of us =)

Hi all, 

Did you guys upload your documents into one file or just combine Resume, CV, LORs, and unofficial transcripts into one file?

Hi, 

Congrats! At least your under consideration. I wasn't under consideration for ICU department, but now I'm waiting for Telemetry which still says under review. Do you mind sharing which department your being considered =)

Hi,

Under resume, select file, upload what your submitting to them under that part. Also, adding everything in one file, then uploading it would be easier.  

Just submitted my app a couple hours ago! Do you guys think they view applicant's submissions on a rolling basis or wait till the posting period is over...I think the deadline is this Tuesday or Wednesday I believe.

Rolling basis. Some people app is already "under consideration". I applied for ICU & Tele, but was "not under consideration" for ICU. I'm still waiting for Tele unit response; It still says "under review".

Good morning,

I applied to Neuro ICU and Surgical ICU. As of right now, my app is still "under consideration". 

I'm a bit confused because in the application directions it says to list your top 2 unit choices in your cover letter,  however it also states "At this time we do not know which Telemetry and ICU specialties have availability. You will be informed if selected for an interview."

How do we pick which units we are applying to then? Do we just put telemetry or ICU in general?

You have to click on "telemetry" or "ICU" to see the specialties if I remember correctly.
