    one suggestion is to fly into reno and rent a car. high desert is about 1.5 hours from reno on 395. the forecast looks like good weather for fri.

    I am interviewing next week at Donovan. Where is the interview thread? I'm going to try to do a search and find it. I really want this job. My family really needs the healthcare. I have two family members with health issues.

    Anyone know what to expect during the interview process?

    I think the take home pay is a little higher. I heard you dont pay state taxes or social security on your pay check. Im not sure if its both but I was told the take home pay is high than private companies because less taxes.

    I am a new graduate RN with ADN. I specifically want to work in corrections and have submit a resume 3 weeks ago. I also took the online exam and got a 75%. I never received a response from the DOC. I also was unable to find out what rank I am. I have never received anything in the mail. I have been applying through for CA prisons. Is this where everyone else is applying? Do they prefer a BSN? Do I have a chance as a new grad with ADN? My GPA is good.

    Thank you

    I just interviewed with CCI in Tehachapi and yes they do interview ADN's. I recently graduated in Dec 2010 and I applied to a few of the correctional institutions. All I can say is to keep trying and to apply to different facilities. Good Luck to you!

    I heard of an agency called Solvere that hires RNs for that facility
