Anyone starting GW Intern program in July??

  1. Hello everyone!

    I was wondering if anyone here is starting the intern program at George Washington University Hospital in July. I recently interviewed with them and am waiting to hear back! They said they'd get back to me by the end of the month for sure but I am anxiously awaiting to hear if I have been accepted! I wanted to know if anyone else has applied to this program and what department you are hoping to get!! Hopefully I will have some good news soon!!!

    I've applied all over..almost every place that was hiring. I haven't heard back from a few places (washington hospital center), had a lot of rejections :-( but two other job offers. I have turned down one position at Walter Reed Hospital in Bethesda and have another one I am considering if I don't get this position at GW. Also, if it makes you feel any better I have been applying since MARCH!! It feels like an eternity. I am simply read to work!!!!!!
    BTW still haven't heard anything but the 26th will be here before we know it!! Keeping my fingers crossed!!!

    Hey Pamela,

    I don't want to get your hopes up or anything but when i applied for the ICU position on Tuesday and got an email the next day telling me that the position was filled.

    Did you apply for a regular ICU position or for the Internship program?
  9. by   bernbabybern820
    The regular one. I'm not sure why i got a reply email back the next day as opposed to the never answering back response that everyone else usually gets. Maybe it's because i did my practicum at GWU?

    I'm sorry that they filled up the regular positions already. I do know that the internship program is something different. It doesn't start until the end of July and that they are making their decisions as we speak.

    i sent an email to the nurse recruiter of GW inquiring about my application status and she said that she would hear from the management today, soo we're going to be informed soon. *fingerscrossed* awww. well i've started "job-hunting" last month hope it wont take too long to look for one. :| that's exactly how i feel right now, i am soo ready to work. i have been idle way too long cause i focused on the exam and just started looking for a job right after i learned that i passed. thanks for the info, am currently applying at any new grad openings! hope we get the job offer! :|

    Congratulations on the interviews! Wishing you all the best of luck. I just learned that I will be relocating to Washington DC at the end of this summer (too bad because I have missed many of the deadlines for the DC area). When visiting last week I stopped in to get more information about the opportunities GW offers for new grads. The nurse recruited did say that she had interviewed everyone for the July program and the candidates will be hearing if they were accepted shortly. Although moving to the area in July, I will be applying for the winter cohort. Does anyone have suggestions as to boosting my resume in the meantime? Have you all worked as patient care techs? Also, where do you plan on living? I'm looking for apartments/roommates and want to find an area that is safe, clean, and affordable (no more than $1100/mo). Thanks for all of the help! I apologize for the long post.
