    thanks guys =) honestly, i’m not sure how ready i am. i took the kaplan review course and i’ve been getting good scores on my tests. however, i made the mistake of logging out early and my online account expired before i could take the last test which tells you if you’re ready. so now i’m just studying from our kaplan book. anyway, i guess i’ll jus study as much as i can. i would also like to have one less thing to worry about. good luck on your test too chica and congrats on passing the nclex candleguy!


    p.s. i realize this is supposed to be a cedars-sinai thread but it's pretty much dying so what the heck lol

    yeah i took Kaplan too...it helped me pass at 75 with all the question practice but i still don't think it was worth 500$$.. 350 at the most.... good luck!

    I am also starting Aug 17th at Cedar... I am moving from Colorado and would definitely be interested in possibly living with someone else from the program. If any of you would be interested let me know!!

    Hi guys,

    Just in case anyone is still interested...

    I called HR this morning. They said they will still be making phone calls to those who were selected until the end of this week.

    Who knows, you still have a chance. I'm not really getting my hopes up though. I just wanted them to tell me that they were done calling so I could forget about it already.

    Hey kids! I just wanted you to know that one of my friends will be rejecting their employment offer from Cedar's because she has accepted another position at a different hospital. So, there is one more position open at Cedar's! Also, have any of you heard about the situation at Huntington Hospital in Pasadena? My other friend was supposed to start their new grad program but the hospital CANCELLED their program and rescinded their employment offers! Can you imagine? Now she has no job AND she has missed out on applying to the other FEW new grad programs. Such a shame. This economy SUCKS!!!
    Good luck to all of you out there still searching!

    Hey guys,

    I hope those of you who are still waiting for an offer get the job. Personally, I'm done waiting. I just won't get lucky with Cedars. However, I do believe that they are not done calling... otherwise, we would have received a letter by now.

    Yesdog, the situation at Huntington is INSANE!!!! Out of curiosity, did your friend signed a contract? I imagine the legal implications this will bring. The only idea that due to the economy other hospitals may take similar actions is very scary.

    wow! how sad but who knows there night be better employment for your friend. im living in the north county of san diego and RN I positions here are all hard to find..i'm thinking that it could be due to the economy, i'm wondering how can't an RN get a job? i thought nurses are in demand..is it really due to the economic downfall? am i the only one RN here suffering with unemployment?

    what happened?

    Healer007 I don't know if she signed a contract or not....probably not.
    i know that I am starting the new grad program at UCIMC and I won't sign my contract until the first day of orientation. Scary place to start working considering that CA is not able to send out paychecks right now....

    What I'd like to know is if anyone with a GPA below 3.5 got hired. Then that means there really is hope! =) I called HR before about this too and the person I talked to said they're being flexible about this. Anyway, thanks for the update socalgirlrn.
