Washington hospital center or Georgetown applicants

  1. Hello wanted to start a thread for anyone applying to the summer 2018 residency programs for MedStar Washington Hospital Center and MedStar Georgetown! I actually applied to both ! Good luck to all who applied . If you've applied, to which units ? I applied to the ED & ICU!

    I'm not a summer applicant but I got hired and will be starting in February as a new grad at Georgetown, so let me know if you have any questions

    Congratulations! I hear it's tough getting into Georgetown , i took the battery and still waiting to hear back for the summer residency.What was the interviews like at Georgetown? Did they let you choose a unit ? IS there a contractual obligation? How's pay for new grad RN?

    I got invited to interview for Georgetown in Feb.! How is the interview process? Any suggestions on how to prepare? When you applied what were your primary interest areas? How is the cost of living in comparison to the new grad RN pay? What unit will you be working on?

    Sorry for all the questions lol

    I'll be coming from Missouri. I'm really excited because I know the application process was rigorous itself, and I really want the opportunity.

    Interviews were great! You talk to your recruiter and also supervisors from your unit! And yes you get to choose your unit (you specify when you submit the packet for the second step of the application). Some units are especially competitive (L&D, NICU, ER, ICU, and a few others I believe), which they tell you when you apply. I also asked how many spots they were filling since I applied for a competitive unit, so I knew exactly how competitive it was. After you interview, you get to shadow on your unit, which I loved! I haven't signed a contract yet, but I know they say two years is expected after residency completion, so it ends up being a total of almost 2.5 years you're expected to say. Pay isn't bad, but cost of living is high. They offer amazing shift differentials though!

    Hi! I also have an interview in february and I was wondering how long the shadow experiences are on the units? Also were the questions difficult and did they require any specific nursing knowledge? Thanks so much!
