Where are the Nurse Job Ads??

  1. Just moved to Southern CA from Ohio and still looking for just the right job (and not necessarily ER again).
    I've been watching the Orange Co. Register and the LA Times, and there just are not that many advertisements for nursing jobs.
    When I was in Cleveland, there were usually 3 pages of them every Sunday with the Cleveland Clinic and University having full and sometimes double pages all by themselves.
    Where do the big hospitals advertise? I know I could just go around and apply or look at websites, but it's nice to see what's available on a weekly basis.

    This is graduation time from many of the nursing schools, so you won't see too many postings. You would be better off contacting directly to Human Resources at a couple of hospials that you are intersted in.
    You can give it another few weeks and see who actually passes NCLEX and who doesn't for those that were already offered positions.

    Good luck......................

    "Nurseweek" is the publication to check. You can go on-line and access information at www.nurseweek.com If you have a CA RN license you can get a subscription free.

    Just a thought too is I have noticed down here in so. Cali the hopitals advertise joblines and you call or go online to find out whats opened up. I haven't really noticed any specific job ads either. Maybe thats where the jobs are listed.
    hope this helps some.

    do you know of any hospital in cali who hires nurses without experience as nurse but had been working in the philippines as a physician. this member happened to be a nurse who is also a physician in the philippines, but had not been working as a nurse.

    California hospitals, as well as any other hospital that hires someone, will hire the nurse and place him/her into a new grad program.

    However, that physician turned RN must, of course, take the NCLEX just like any other nurse in the country. Just because one was physician doesn't exempt them from the proper licensure (in case you didn't know). And then the new nurse will enter whatever hospital training to work in a specific specialty that he or she is offered/chooses.
