I will be graduating in May 2008. I have received a job offer from UVA Hospital on PICU, but as I started to read and study more about peds, I have become more and more interested in this population, and now I want to work at a hospital that solely takes care of peds! I began looking at some Children's Hospitals, and I came across CHLA, and their new grad RN Residency program sounds like it is a winner. I am not too concerned with the money part of it (at least not at the moment) I really just want to get a good experience and a really good orientation that will allow for a lot of learning, but also making sure the new grad is ready to practice alone once the residency is finished. Does anyone know anything about CHLA? Environment? About the RN Residency? Population?

I graduated from USC and had clinicals at CHLA. I have received a few of the electronic RN Residency newsletters. I just looked in my email and have them stored from last July, which might be when they started publishing it. If you'd like me to forward them to you, I'd be happy to do that. PM me with your email if you're interested.
I don't have direct experience with the residency. I hope you get other replies to this request.
