    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at UCLA in May 2017.

    Make sure you plan to arrive early (consider traffic). After checking in they handed me a paper with 2 short response questions that I had to complete before the interview. Interviewed with just the department nurse manager and another nurse. They were both very nice and after not answering a question the way I should've turned it into a learning experience where they suggested what a nurse should do. They give you a packet that also has a timeline of when they make decisions by and when you will hear back from them. They let everyone know if they were chosen or not.

    The interview process was highly enjoyable. They flew us out for a weekend in LA and put us up in a posh hotel and fed us very well. We saw presentations from current students and got to meet with a variety of PIs that we requested from a list. Each interview with the PI was informative and they were all very willing to discuss their work and provide insights into life and work at UCLA.
