California's 2009 New Grad RN Program- Who's hiring right now? - page 14

Greetings. This is my story- I graduated from Nursing School in May 2008 (ADN) and passed my boards in October 2008. I live north of San Fran and have yet to find a New Grad Program. I've been... Read More

    Thanks, very good to know they are getting more new grads. Anyone applied and have heard back from UCSF's new grad acute care program?

    emmanewgrad,

    You can also check with Kern Medical Center. It is the county hospital, it is also a teaching hospital with a residency program. There are tons of students (nursing, NP, PA, RT, you name it). It is a great place to learn and grow as a nurse. It is also a trauma center, so lots of sick people and great experiences. Tons of doctors as you can imagine, and you don't have to put up with rude doctors the way you do in private hospitals. The doctors are always around, they sleep in the hospital so they do not mind if you call them in the middle of the night, if it is something to be concerned about they'll just walk over and take a look. Check it out.
    Thanks so much!
    I am interested in Forensic Nursing/Correctional Nurse, I went back to school to earn my nursing degree for this purpose after earning Adm. of Justice Degree... I just applied and am so excited of this new possible opportunity. Thank you again for this information I had missed! Wish me luck....

    Hello,
    I'm writing because I'm looking for a staffing agency which helps NEW GRADs get a job in hospital. I'm wondering if there is such staffing agency. If anyone heard of such staffing agency, please let me know. Thank you.

    As far as I know staffing agencies only take in experienced nurses, although I could be wrong. Hopefully someone else might know more...

    Staffing agencies require their nurses to have at least 6 months to a year experience, so they could send them to hospitals. I tried to call several of them and they all said the same thing.

    I am wondering if new grads are sending applications to jobs they know they don't want just to get in somewhere? maybe get more interview experience? and what do experienced nurses think if we do it are we setting ourselves up to hate nursing?
  7. by   coffy25
    I am in the middle of the jobhunt myself as a new grad. Its hard out there. Nonetheless, I think time will come when we will be grateful for the opportunity to know how to network, interview, etc. something most nurses did not go through. We will get something going for us in time and we will hold our newfound roles to greater value.

    Has the Washington Hospital new grad program for Sept 2009 already closed? I can't find any reference to it on their website. Did they already pull the listing after only a couple of days? Thanks!

    If you don't see it on their website, it is most likely closed. It was posted on Monday Feb 22 so it is most likely closed by now. The thing with applying for hospital jobs in the bay area or in CA, you have to be extremely persistent and check everyday. A lot of hospitals will post a new grad position for 1 to several days and then close it. If you see a posting, apply asap cause it probably won't be there the next time you check it especially if it is for a new grad position.
