    It depends on whether or not the facilities are hiring for any positions. Timing is everything.

    I was offered a position in the ER as well, congrats. Did they offer you the F position? Did they explain what that means?

    Congrats to both of you! :-) The "F" means that it's a temporary position.

    If anyone knows, correct me if I'm wrong. The "F" item is temporary. The training program is approximately 3 months long. I'm going down this week to begin paperwork, etc. and was going to ask more questions then. Does the hourly base rate increase once the position becomes permanent? I'm a nurse with 8 years of experience. The pay scale that i found on the county's website shows significantly higher pay. Thanks And congrats JGRN!!

    I think the pay increases when the position becomes permanent (I'm not sure though). I was told I would be eligible for a permanent position in 6 months, at that time I would have to re-interview for permanent positions that are open at that time.

    Thanks CoCStudentNurse. Are you starting on a med-surg floor? I was told in the interview that the ER training program is approximately 3 months long and after that, we begin working in the ER as a permanent position......as long as we get through the program of course

    Wow. 3 months is a nice training period. We only get 6 weeks on med/surg.

    Yeah, I thought so too. The first 9 weeks is all classroom......in the interview I said, "Wow, like going back to school!" and they said, "yep!" Once we're in there they said they slowly ease us onto the unit.....
