    I received a call on thursday from Corona Regional. I went to test today. They told us the for 2 months you start off as a CNA you received 10.88hr the shifts are 3days 12hrs a day. Then being that there is R.N. positions you get promoted to R.N. the pay goes to 31.80. However that is if you pass the behavioral/personality battery test given. Then you move on to a one on one interview if you pass that then you move on to the panel interview. hope this helps
    Hi OcRNBear,
    Do you mind sharing how you got this job? I've been applying for CNA positions, but haven't gotten any responses. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    What Coronal Regional does is they hire RN's as CNA's for two months then they get promoted to a RN position. This is the website [URL=""] I applied like 2 times for this position for the A.M. and P.M. shift. As far as getting a job as a C.N.A. I would say contact the recruiter and just keep on asking questions and bugging them until they give you an interview I have heard that has worked to land a job. Are you including cover letters with your resume? Good luck!

    How did you get in contact with the recruiter? Just called the hospital's main line and asked for the nurse recruiter?

    Beware of this advice. Bugging them is perhaps more likely to get your e-mails dumped to the spam folder and your calls ignored. Nobody likes to be bugged.

    The h.r recuiter's name is ---- dont have her number I declined the postion. However my friend is working there he was telling me that he has 18 patients a shift. I have been told by experinced nurse that it is dangerous working as a C.N.A its high liability because You are a R.N. if you dont or do interverne in a emergancy it can be held against you in court. I walked away from that mess. My friend is over worked and under paid 10.88 hr plus its not union so IF you do promote to RN being that there is jobs You get a set rate of 31.86 I dont think its worth it.
    As getting a job as a C.N.A I know they are very short staffed according to my friend. If you have applied call and just follow up nicely I m not sure if Pearl is the recuirter as well for C.N.A job. I think 10.88 is very low pay for C.N.A's that have 18patients to provide care for. Best of luck if you have any questions feel free to ask.

    This New Grad Care Partner program is open again, and starting in September. I already completed the assessment test and preliminary interview, which went really well! The next step would be a panel interview, with 5-6 directors of nursing. I am very hopeful that I could start my career at Corona Regional. I graduated from a school in northern CA and recently moved to Corona to be closer to family, and this is just perfect for me! I am still in shock that this could really happen. They are hiring 6 new grads now, and last year they hired 30. They say that no one is guaranteed to move up to an RN spot, but all 30 new grads were found RN positions last year. You do have to be a CNA for 3-4 months, but that is SO worth it to me if it means I will most likely be an RN there by the end of the year. I have applied to lots of other RN jobs around here and this is the first one that I've actually heard anything from. Has anyone else interviewed for these positions?

    It's a interesting concept. Find out who is trainable as a RN without actually spending the money to train them first. Corona's a nice area. I've been hoping to eventually move out to Norco.
