I have applied to the county RN1/relief nurse position and will be taking the test soon. I want to go into the ICU. I've read that LAC USC first puts you in medsurg for about 6 months then you may be able to transfer into the ICU cohort. Then I've read that Harbor UCLA puts you right in to ICU. I am concerned that I will be stuck in medsurg if I go with LAC USC.

What are your thoughts on which hospital would give me the best training? How do the cultures of the hospitals differ? Is one hospital superior over the other in how it looks on your resume? Thank you in advance!
