    WhoMeaNurse, I work at Coalinga State Hosp, as registry now, Dept of Mental Health and I know Corrections RNs make about 500-1000 more base pay than DMH, plus including drop w/furloughs too.

    CSUF student nurse, I have 6 months RN experience as registry at Coalinga State Hosp, Dept of mental health, and I just had an interview w/Central Ca Women's Facility in Chowchilla, and seem to be eligible for the job. Some prisons like Valley State are more competitive in that way now.

    How do you like it there? I have an interview at Corcoran soon. I live in Los Angeles, but can not find any jobs locally. What are the schedules like? Do you feel safe? Thanks.

    Hi Tirzo13,

    I have a question in regards to chula vista veterans home in San Diego. I am graduating as an
    RN with my BSN in a couple months and am considering working at the chula vista veterans
    home. Do you have any information about this facility? Such as benefits, do they provide a
    pension aswell as 401k? How do they treat the employees? How much do RN's make there?
    Overall do you like working there? I really want to work for the state because I hear they offer
    great benefits, just not sure what they are, and I dont want to work in corrections, so I
    figure the va home in chula vista might just be best for me . I have seen your previous
    posts and you give great information and advice! Any information would be greatly
    appreaciated! Thanks

    Hello Everyone,

    I received about six of those letters asking if I was interested in working in various positions across the state and I filled out the applications and sent them back, but I have yet to hear anything in the last 3-4 weeks. Can anyone tell me their experience with how long it took from applying to receiving any kind of contact for interviews or exams?

    Any information would be very helpful!
