    R. Yusi, apparently this examination is new and takes the place of the interview. It is a work styles assessment that tests things such as deductive reasoning, professional potential, reliability etc. I was just hoping maybe someone had taken it because I have no idea how to prepare....

    Hi Sophia,
    Im sorry..i had my interview like 3 weeks ago and I never went though a written exam. I went through the physical interview and everything..some of the clinical questions i got asked were pretty interesting and hard...(like im glad I have ER experience..because if I was fresh out of school..i wouldnt know how to answer some of the questions they asked)..people say if you went to nursing school...you'd do fine..but my interview was pretty hard and gave me situations where the disease and tx isnt obvious, and I went with my current experience in the ER and THAT helped out a lot)...
    Anyway, good luck with the written exam!! hope it goes well

    @R.Yusi, Hopefully you'll hear something soon! All I know is that there are two start dates: The 1st and the 16th, so depending on when your livescan clears, you can maybe gauge more or less when you'll be starting since things after than move pretty quickly. I'm predicting a July 1st start date simply because I need to give a two weeks notice at my current job.

    (I'm not a new grad...but a recent grad I graduated in May 2012 from Long Beach City College and I've been working in med-surg for the past 5 months. New to ER and county tho and very excited!!!)

    What have they told you about the training program?

    I didn't have ER experience and was offered the position in ER. I think it has to do with how well you come across in the interview, understanding what they are looking for and being able to match your experience, personality and skills to that.

    Yes, The position i applied for was the RN-I position. I dont think experience is required because it seems like other applicants got the job with no ER or RN experience...Did you accept the job offer @ county?

    Well, they didnt really tell me much about the program except that its a combo of on the floor training and classroom setting..you have to pass numerous tests..and most of the floor training will be on night shift .have you heard anything?

    coast2coast, So....I took the written exam. Not feeling that great about it. The three minutes seemed to go by really quickly! Have you taken it yet?

    I wasn't offered a job [yet], just the written exam. Hopefully it goes well so I can be on the list. I was on the list last year but was offered a job here in New York and by the time I started applying for a position my eligibility had expired since it had already been 6 months since my oral interview.
