Jul 5, '13 by anabanana67I have an interview for ER next week too. I had one for ICU this week and it was all behavioral and personality. I really studied and was surprised after the interview. Were the ER interviewers friendly? Were there more than one?
Jul 10, '13 by whimm02For those of you that heard back from LAC+USC, did you all include your cover letter and DMV record when attaching the documents?
Thanks in advance
Jul 10, '13 by RN/MomQuote from whimm02Did they specifically ask for your DMV record? If so, that's a new requirement. When I applied last year they never asked for that.For those of you that heard back from LAC+USC, did you all include your cover letter and DMV record when attaching the documents?
Thanks in advance

Jul 18, '13 by r.yusiQuote from AngRN77LAMy start date is August 16th!! Im so excited!!! How was your first month!!??? Are with a preceptor already?? How is your schedule?Here's my timeline on how long it took for me to get hired:
Applied August 2012
Civil Service Exam March 2013
Called in for Interview with managers: May 10th & 14th 2013 (3 interviews, total)
May 23rd 2013 offered position in ER
Livescan completed May 31st
Health Clearance complete June 5th
Start date: July 1st.
I did not wait around for county to contact me; I had forgot all about applying in fact. I took a job at a SNF after I graduated until I could find a hospital job. I found a hospital job at a small community hospital which still hires ADN's, and then I was contacted by county. I've only been working in a hospital for 6 months and I love where I work but I can't let this opportunity pass me by!!! For all those trying to get in, be patient but don't focus only on county, keep your options open but definitely follow up. When I applied, I didn't have any experienced referenced on my application, they called me based on being a new grad.
Jul 19, '13 by NewGradRN77Anyone else had an interview for the DEM Jail Clinic @ LAC USC? If you did please let me know if/when you hear anything back from them in regards to being hired...had an interview today..but I've been reading from prior posts related to other units that it may take a few weeks to receive an offer...
Jul 25, '13 by Sophia, RNHey every one Just want to share my experience with county...
May 15, I applied
May 31, took written exam
June 18, Got the letter saying i passed and was on the eligibility list
July 11, went to harbor to fill out a "hard copy" application
July 19, Med surg interview at harbor
July 24, ER interview Harbor and Job offer from med surg and did my live scan.
Now... just waiting to clear to get my physical. I am so exited... its a long process, but worth it. I got a part time night shift position on a trauma step down unit, and after looking for work for a year... i couldnt be happier.
Keep your heads up, pray, and follow up!! Good luck guys! and thanks for this thread... it was sp helpful
Aug 4, '13 by avillafana13Hello! do any of you have tips for la county interview? Anything is appreciated
Aug 5, '13 by RNEW13Hi all, I need to make a decision between county and clinic jobs. I got hire at a clinic for full time and full benefits. I then got an offer to work for med-surg at county as relief nurse night shift. It's temporary with no benefits. As a new grad, which one would you choose? Thanks.
Aug 7, '13 by live4heart80Did anyone take the EKG test for ER position? If so how was it? I do know how to interpret it but not so much the placement. I got a contingent offer but I have to pass the background check which I did, then the physical and EKG.
