    Has anyone received the official offer letter yet from HR?
    I have only gotten the offer letter from HR (the one where you have to accept/decline the job offer).I was contacted by Employee Health to schedule the physical, but they realized that I was up to date on everything, so I didn't need to come in. I got the on-boarding email from Greentree, but then the recruiter told me to disregard it bc I wasn't a new hire. So I am really confused and will be contacting them first thing next week if I don't hear anything definite by Friday...

    How did some of you guys become super-users? Did you have/ need experience in order to become a super-user? very curious since this is the second time I've heard of this term.

    Thanks for sharing... I know priority automatically goes to BSN, but do you know what the ratio was for ADN nurses? I'm an ADN nurse from Santa Monica College but will have my BSN by the end of this year... any info will help thanks!

    Hi Newbie RN! I hope you got the position! I'm writing today to see if you'd mind sharing whether you graduated from an ADN or a BSN program....

    Did anyone who got called for an interview graduate from an ADN program?

    @lint8929: To become a superuser at UCLA, you had to be a new grad with a BSN and computer charting/customer service experience was preferred. I found the job posting on the UCLA career website and it was a great learning experience! Many superusers were hired into UCLA's Residency program because we were considered "internals" and had experience with their new computer charting system.

    @CaliRN07: 2 more questions that just popped into my brain: did you have prior RN experience and were there a lot of ppl, during your employement as a superuser, in the nursing field? Thanks!

    @lint8929: I had no prior RN experience and there were about 400 external superusers hired (most of them were new grad nurses).

    Hi everyone! I'm applying for this upcoming round of applications. Does anyone know of any potential surprises like "First 500 only?" or an assessment RIGHT AFTER submitting your application?

    Hi everyone! I had been checking the website for a new grad program app but I guess I missed it?? Is anyone round opening?? Thanks!!

    I don't think there is a limit to the number of apps that they receive but there will be an online assessment that you must complete.

    You didn't miss the app. I believe it's coming up on June 5th or 6th for the Summer New Grad cohort.

    Good Luck!
