from slammin121684 yes you have to pay for parking but its only a few dollar taken out of your second paycheck. initally you pay a flat 30 fee to park as a temporary employee that allows you to park for about 4 months until your unit and **** is picked.

Just to confirm...

ED is royal blue dress code. When you go through, a lot of the units will have t-shirts they can wear. ED is the only unit that doesn't allow that... but when you're rotating through, prior to match day, it's okay to wear non-royal blue and a vandy t-shirt.

Parking isn't a few dollars if you end up on day-shift unless you got for a shuttle lot some distance away. Parking on days can go beyong 72$ a month. It's easier on night shift and most critical care units guarantee that you will be on nights. This was not the case in the ED. There was possibility for day shift in the ED and some others were open for shifts like 3-3, 11-11 and 1-1. If you get nights, some of the garages are as cheap as 10.72$ a month.

Hey guys! I have actually been following this thread for a really long time now waiting for my chance to apply to the residency program! I was just wondering if anyone has any idea of when they open the application for the Winter 2011 program? Looking at how early they opened the Fall 2010 program it seems like the application should already be open for the Winter program. Anyway just wondering if anyone knows when it opened up last year or anything!

Thanks!

I think it's absolutely worth it! (Of course this is only Day #2.) It's exciting to work some place that really seems to want you to love your job. I actually had a job that I left for this opportunity. AND I moved from Colorado! Good luck!:yeah:

I also just started the residency program and LOVE it!! I was an internal employee of Vanderbilt so the transition has been amazing. They really want you to be comfortable and they love to educate all of the new grads. Good luck to those applying in the Winter. Please feel free to pm me with any questions.

I too am applying for the 2011 residency and my question is regarding men who apply. From what I can tell from looking at prior classes, there really aren't that many men in the classes. It's approximately 10%. Is it just that a lot of men don't apply, because I'd like to assume that being male or female doesn't matter. Any takers?

The 10% is an accurate representation of total males in nursing. I'm a male and was accepted to Vandy's ICU program for 2010. And while merit did play a large role in me being accepted, I would not be surprised if the 10% of the male nurses you see are based on 10% of the nursing application population being male.
