    Could someone also tell me what it's like to work at Kern Medical Center? I've tried to look through the allnurses forums but most of them are quite outdated. I just wanted to hear about some honest opinions about what the culture is like there and whether they felt like they received good training as a new grad nurse or maybe a new nurse to a floor/unit. Thanks!

    Does anyone know how many people Kern is interviewing and when we should hear back from them after our interview?

    I had a phone interview with them a while ago, and apparently, they indicated that they have several hundred other people to interview. In addition, budget cuts sometimes prevent them from hiring people even though they've conducted hundreds of panel interviews.

    I'm interviewing with them this week. Did they let you know when they'd get back to you? I also heard something similar... Kern would be interviewing 300-500 people. My friend who got hired a couple months ago said that about 300 people interviewed for about 6 positions.

    Pre-nursing student and was wondering as a new grad is it hard to find a job at a hospital in the kern county area? Because they tell us there is such a shortage here...

    It is definitely difficult to find a job as a new grad. If they are talking about shortages, it is probably in reference to the shortage of skilled nurses. Many new grads would consider themselves lucky to land a new grad job in Kern County.

    There is no nursing shortage in Kern County. Do not believe the hype.

    Interviewed with Kern Medical Center this week. They are interviewing hundreds of applicants this week and throughout the next few weeks.

    How did it go? I was curious about the type of questions that they asked since all the managers from your desired units will be present. I know that I want ICU, but if I show more interest for that unit won't that jeopardize my chances in the other departments?

    Having a preference will not jeopardize your chances. They will ask what your choices of units are.

    I have been scheduled for a panel interview at KMC this coming Friday. I will be keeping my fingers crossed with the hope that a solid job offer comes to fruition after they have finished interviewing all the candidates that they plan to see. This is not for a new grad position since I've already been a nurse for several years, so I am hoping they will examine my experience and give me a chance.

    Good luck to everyone!

    The folks over at Kern are very nice and welcoming people. They tried their best to make me feel at ease! I think that says a lot about the work environment and the culture of the hospital. Good luck on your interview!
