Be sure to include detailed information on resume regarding clinical rotations and/or senior practicum rotation (how many hours in each clinical rotation and department types).
The candidate will be prompted to complete an automated questionnaire during the application process. The questionnaire will ask the candidate to rank their top three department choices, in order. See the department choices above. In addition, the candidate will be asked to select in which Interview Track they feel they are best qualified for (Acute Care Interview Track or Critical Care Interview Track).
Candidates may select only one interview track.
The two (2) interview tracks available are:
(1) Critical Care Interview Track: for candidates interested in the following departments: NICU, PICU, CICU, or ED.
(2) Acute Care Interview Track: for candidates interested in the following departments-
Medical Unit, Surgical Unit, Infusion Services, Cancer Care Unit, Rehabilitation Unit, Psychiatry & Behavioral Medicine Unit or Acute Care Float Pool (ACFP).
If a candidate ranks departments in both the acute care and critical care interview tracks, we will place the candidate into the interview track of their "top-ranked" unit. Again, candidates will only be able to interview in one of the interview tracks.
