    Hi all,
    Congrats to those of you who were hired! I'm graduating in May and I would love to work at LA+USC. I'm having a hard time figuring out where to even look to see where the position would be posted!

    Any help is highly appreciated!
    You have to look first at the LA County Website for RN I openings and apply online. They will contact you for a civil interview and if you pass, your name will go on the RN I list. From there, you can contact the various LA County hospitals to see if there are positions open. Sometimes, as in my case, the hospital may contact you to set up an interview but don't rely on them. If you really want to work for a particular hospital, contact them once your name is on the RN I list...

    At this time, I don't think LA County has an RN I position open, but check back frequently.

    Hope this helps!

    Sorry one more question, the RN I jobs say you have to have your license so I wouldn't be able to apply for those would I? I thought I could only apply for the one's that say New Grad? This is all so confusing

    Oct 19 2012 - applied to the RN I Position
    Mar 17 2013 - got my civil exam letter
    Apr 10 2013 - had my interview (interview went terribly awful thought i failed it)
    Apr 22 2013- Got the letter that i PASSED the civil exam (totally shocked )

    Now I need to start calling all the county hospitals to see if they is open positions (hopefully med surg or ER)
    Has anyone tried to get into a telemetry floor? Ive been reading all the threads and it seems it just been med surg, ER, PEDS, NICU, & ICU.
    Oh well will be posting updates about this LONG JOURNEY ahead of me hehe

    You should have a list of all hospitals with the numbers and email address of the nurse recruiters when you had your civil service exam.

    Just got a call from a nurse recuriter from LAC+USC for a pysch & m/s positions on May 10th. A little bit nervous cause the recuriter is asking for performance evaluations with evidence of attendance written on for ALL my school clinicals. There were some clinicals that i did show up late and one clinical that i had a family emergency and did not show up that day but when it was time to go back to clinicals, i forgot to call my instructor early that i would be late and i got yelled and written up for that particular incident.

    Does the performance evaluations with my history of attendance going to hurt me in any way doing my interview process and what kind of questions would they mostly ask in a psych & m/s interview so i can kinda prepare for?

    Honestly, they didn't ask to see mine, even though they told me to bring it to the interview. But it may depend on who interviews you

    I had my interview at LAC USC for an RN1 on their med/surg floor on April 18th. Does anyone know how long it generally takes for them to extend a job offer? It's been almost 3 weeks and I'm so anxious!

    Also, they requested my most recent clinical performance evaluation too. I brought in my last two and had to ask the unit manager during my interview if she wanted them, otherwise they would not have asked for them.

    Depending on what unit you applied for. There are multiple M/S floors and unit managers vary with how they submit new hires.
