I am currently a Nurse Apprentice at a Children's Hospital and have been so since August of 2016. I will be graduating in June and will be relocating to the Los Angeles area.
On a lot of the postings online, I see requirements for 1 year of experience or the need to enter a residency program. CHLA is a hospital I am very interested in but from what I read online, they have a 22 week residency with pay under $25/hr.
I am wondering if my paid apprenticeship will count as nursing experience in instances such as this. I am not against a residency program at all but it would certainly be hard for me too afford for 22 weeks while being new to the city.
