    Interview went well! Such a beautiful hospital, and both the manager and supervisor are so nice. Do you know exactly how many they are interviewing? I asked and they are only hiring 4, so its a slim chance for all of us! Fingers crossed.

    Hello Everybody,

    I am Prashant infusion RN in clinic in Santa Monica part time, I am also foreign nurse from India, I want to know that which hospitals are offering new grad RN program for foreign nurses in California, I try Cedar-Sinai Hospital but they told me that only nursing students who graduate from community college in US can apply for this new grad RN program.

    Please help me so that I can get the full time job to survive in LA,

    Sincerely,

    Prashant

    Just wanted to post I had an interview too. The interview felt so long. I think they interviewed about 50 people for four positions. I don't know if I said or did what it took to be chosen. Good luck to everyone.

    CONGRATS katie33!! While I interviewed last Monday as well, I just received my rejection email. Sucks, but on to the next one. If I may ask, what was your preceptorship/clinical background? I did not have ICU for my preceptorship [thrown into Med-Surg], so I knew going in that it would be an uphill battle. Thanks in advance and CONGRATS you're a working RN!!

    Same here, MANYLYNURSEMAN. I had stepdown ICU for Capstone, so I knew it would be kind of a stretch as well. But we gave it a good try and there are more opportunities to come. Congrats Katie33!!

    Hey everyone, I just got a call and I accepted too! Sooo excited! Congrats Katie33! Btw, were u able to accept online yet? I tried but the link is not there yet, so I'm thinking HR is closed and we'll see the link in the morning! Good luck to everyone else!

    I also did not have a preceptorship in ICU, but did have critical care as a course to achieve my BSN and had a semester or rotations through the MICU. However, I did have a preceptorship/externship on an Acute Surgical Floor with telemetry. I also thought the interview was a little rough, but am blessed with the news and can't wait to start.

    Majan RN - I actually haven't checked online yet, but SC told me that it wouldn't be available till tomorrow - so I'll just wait to do it then. Do you live near by or are you planning to relocate? I live around 100 miles away and am looking to move, but I have no clue where to go! So crazy that we have less than a month till the start date!!
