Anyone ever fail Kaiser’s New Hire Tele Exam?

Hi there - new here. Just got hired at Kaiser Med/Surg-Tele and had to take a EKG test. Only had 1 night to study! I failed the first time but have 2 more chances to take if. Just curious if anyone else had the same experience? Feeling super bummed but hopeful I will pass!

I did, but since I was hired into OB, I didn't give it much thought (they didn't care). I would be concerned if you are hired into the tele department and you can't pass the tele test. That would be like hiring someone into L&D who can't identify what she is seeing on a fetal monitor strip.

Good luck, I hope you pass.

Hi there, any advice? I’m studying, but their review is extremely technical. I was previously on a med surg floor and was hired to a med surg/tele floor at Kaiser. I’m so nervous and I tend to study too broad. Any help to focus my studying would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Victoria! We are trying to get into Kaiser in Norcal. So far my husband and I have done the Video interview. Do you have any idea what is the next step after that?
