Hi guys,

Im graduating from University of Michigan in May. Applied to Vanderbilt's RN Residency program back in January. I am interested in pediatrics! Critical care would be ideal, but for my critical care clinical rotation this year I was placed in an ambulatory PACU (yeah, so I don't have any actual critical care experience). However, for the PCICU they didn't require ICU experience like the all the other ICU units. So I ranked PCICU as my #1.

Got the call for PCICU interview about two weeks ago. Only available interview slots for that unit were during second week on March. So, I am interviewing this upcoming Monday. 

Anybody else interviewing for peds?? Also, any additional info or tips regarding the interview process? I am stoked but definitely nervous.

How was it?

 Tracy greeted me and the other interviewees of my time slot (each of us was for a different unit). She is soooo nice and told us a little bit more about Vanderbilt and the program. I really feel like they try their best to prepare you so you are ready and not super nervous. My interview was with three people, one being a new grad resident 1 year into the program. That was definitely a comforting presence. The first half of the interview was general "about you" questions and the second half is behavioral based questions. I prepped an adequate amount (going through my old clinical reflections and researching some common behavioral based questions) and I was able to give good examples/stories for every question. They were typical. I'm a hot mess if I get thrown off in a setting like that, but I got through it just fine! At the end you are able to ask them any questions you have (and definitely have questions, it shows youre interested and that you care).

They told us we would find out at the end of the week if we are offered a position (because our units were done with interviews then). Good luck all!

I was waitlisted and still waiting to hear for an interview. I know the email said late March, but any idea when interviews will be for those that were waitlisted?

I emailed Tracey the other day about the possibility of an interview off the waitlist. She said interviews will be conducted through April 5th so we have until then for her to reach out, as denied or cancellations happen. Interviews could be for any of the track choices listed on application.
