i just received my temporary license to work as a registerd nurse in california. (i applied through endorsement from vermont). im from the san fernando valley area and greatly surrounded by different hospitals.
can i go to work directly without going through the new grad program?
if not, when do these programs usually start? i have a list of websites from these hospitals and none mentioned when the actual program would start. some of it are: kaiser permanente (woodland hills and panorama area), northridge hospital, velley presbyterian, olive view (ucla), encino tarzana medical center, west hills hospital, etc.
i hear they usually take 4-6 months for the program to finish. i am planning of having a vacation in the philippines come march for a very important family gathering. will they allow me to take 2-3 weeks off from work?
i greatly need ur help, guys. pls reply. thank u so much.
