VANDERBILT NURSE RESIDENCY Winter 2021

Posted
by MroseBSN MroseBSN (New) New Nurse

Hi guys!

I have not seen a thread for the Vanderbilt Nurse Residency program for Winter 2021 and thought I'd make one! I am currently in the process of applying. I am on my first part of my application. I would love to hear whose applying, what unit they are applying to and your experience so far!

Yay! I've been waiting for someone to start this thread! I am working on my packet/second portion of the application. Actually I am done but just waiting on my last reference to submit her portion!

I’ve been waiting on this thread 😭😭 I just finished my application. I chosen pediatrics (CVICU, acute care) or mental health. Waiting on my references now. What about you? Do you all live in Tennessee?

Finally got to submit my packet Monday night. My name is Keneisha. I was born and raised in TN and graduating in December! My number 1 is adult acute surgical, then adult perioperative, behavioral health, and then some random peds track. I live near Nashville. Working at Vanderbilt has always been my dream! I've researched the residency program a lot so hopefully things will go well! How is everyone else?

Hey keneisha! I’m coming from out of state. I think I’ve been to Nashville once but visited gatlinburg many times. St.Judes is why I started looking at Tennessee but shortly became in love with vanderbilt. I already knew of it and was already looking at the university’s nursing programs. I finished my application Tuesday evening! I’m excited myself. My professor referenced a student there many years ago and they currently still work there. My chosen tracks are above. How is the living there are in Nashville? If I get an interview, I’m going to stay the weekend to get a feel for Nashville and take a mini vacation from online classes

I'm sure there are plenty of places to stay! Apartments are pretty expensive in Nashville but the nearby areas are a bit cheaper. As far as hotels for the weekend or airbnbs or whatever else, there should be lots of options for you as well. Nashville is a busy and action-packed place, a bit too much for my small town-raised self!

What’s a safe city that’s outside of Nashville you would say? Even I stay away from the hussle and bussle of my own state. Atlanta 😖

Franklin would probably be your best bet! I'd definitely stay away from Antioch. Smyrna and Murfreesboro would be good choices as well but a bit further away. I love reading these threads and hate when people move their convos to direct messages but if you wanna talk about more things not specific to the residency or Nashville then feel free to message me privately!

Hey y'all. Kind of late submitting the first part of my application as my computer was broken for most of the Summer. Im just awaiting the packet and already have my reference peoples on standby so that I can have it submitted by the deadline. Glad someone finally started a thread for Winter 2021, as I'm sure we've all ready every other VUMC Nurse Residency thread on here to get some inside pointers LOL. Best of luck to everyone!

Patiently waiting to hear back. Late august is too far away LOL I would like to know now to ease my anxiety.

also, just wanted to let you know that the application says peds oncology is not accepting applications this cycle. Don’t want your application to get overlooked.

Did anyone get an email or anything after submitting the second section of their application? Also thanks for letting me know about the pediatric hem/onc! Luckily I placed PICU as my #1, and hopefully they will just assume I want any other peds acute as my secondary. What were everyone elses track choices?

I did get an email saying they'd received it and that they would start communicating "Next Steps" (assuming interviews) in the last week of August! The suspense might kill me before then.. stay tuned! I got that email about 36 hours after submitting.

Tell me about it! The suspense my goodness. I do appreciate that they are quick, early and precise with their program

How is everyone holding up? I am currently at a point where I think about whether or not I will get an interview at least three times per day.

Hey! I also live in Detroit and applied to the program! I am hoping for the women's health track, but we will see. Only a little longer until we find out if we got an interview!

do we know when we will hear back about interviews?
