Does anyone have any advice on how to make a strong letter of intent for Vanderbilt's Nurse residency program? I know they accept a lot of applicants for each cohort but I'm not sure how many people actually apply and how competetive it actually is. If there is anyone on here that is currently in the program, was previously or knows anyone who has gone through the program, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I just applied to that program and I was wondering about all of that too. I am not sure how competitive it is and I am not quite sure what they are looking for in the Letter of Intent. Hopefully mine was good enough to even be considered. I just did my best. Sorry I can't help you but hopefully someone will be able to on here. Good luck.

S_JonesRN,

I have exactly the same question. I am mailing off my application in the morning, and I'm trying to figure out how to format it, and what exactly I should say. I know it's last minute but if you figure anything out, let me know and I'll do the same. What track are you applying for?

i am applying for the critical care track. I am dropping mine off directly at the office on monday because i don't trust that it will get there in the mail on time. I guess if it's meant to be it will work out. Im already an RN so hopefully that will help.

I know, I am nervous about trusting the mail also. But I am in NC, so I guess I don't have any other choice. I just finished writing my letter, so hopefully it is good enough. Congrats on already being an RN. I can only imagine how amazing it feels, as I am finishing up my last semester of school. It's great that you already have RN experience. That should really help with your application. Are you working anywhere currently? I am also applying for the critical care track. This is whole process of applying for jobs is stressful, but very exciting at the same time.

Hello!!!! Good luck to you both. My first choice was the critical care track as well but we will see what I am put in (if any). I am curious how many people have applied for this program thus far. Do you both know when interviews will begin?? I feel like I received an e-mail that stated that interviews took place October 5-15th. I think I deleted it or I am mixing it up with another program. If you know anything let me know. Thanks so much.

Good luck to everyone! I, too, applied to Vandy! I haven't heard anything about dates for interviews, but I'll be tickled pink and on the first flight out of Florida if I get called for an interview!
