Los Angeles County Sheriff RN?
- 0Feb 7, '11 by jkim951Has anyone ever applied to RN positions within the sheriff's dept? I know that dealing with inmates can be dangerous work, but the pay and benefits look pretty good.

I have a good friend who works at San Quentin, where California's death row is, and he's been a lot safer there than I have at my trauma center. Our security guards are unarmed and prohibited from putting hands on anyone (translation: useless).

Do you know if they're looking to hire new grads?i did..I tooked their RN examination last jan 7 and still waiting for the results..I heard bout dealing with the inmates is not that dangerous because there are sheriffs working with you..

You need at least a combined written and interview score of 94.5% to be placed in band I. Good luck!Mina, do they give you a study guide for the written test?

Here is the LA County Public health practice questions: http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/phn...evised6-10.pdf
and answer sheet: http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/phn...evised6-10.pdf
These documents are public information and can be accessed through the LAC public health website.
