Kaiser in my area hires LVN's right now in northern California.I am a new grad LVN with 5 months of experience and currently hold 2 different LVN positions. I have been applying with kaiser for over 4 years even for basic patient transporting jobs,etc. I have never received an email that didn't say that i either did not meet the qualifications ( when i even checked the qualifications per position that i fit) or that the position had been given away to someone else. Was told that Kaiser HR doesn't go through every application themselves and that they have a computerized application and resume checker that scans for certain wording/words within a applicants resume, and if it sees a keyword that it likes, it will send the resume directly to the HR so that they make contact you. Dont know if this is true or not, but cant cant get in for anything.

That's more than I made as an RN in that area in 2012.... Good for you.

I know that you posted this five years ago but hopefully you come here once in a while. How did you start as a New Grad at Kaiser? I am constantly being told I need to work there and how great it is and I am about to graduate but they seem pretty strict on having 6 months minimal experience and prefer 1-2 years. I live right by a Kaiser near Sacramento CA and so far my only job offers in acute care have been in Nevada.! Please, any advice.

The only time kaiser creates new grad programs is when the department has a few techs who finished nursing school and they're going to train them. its not uncommon to have techs who are RNs but waiting for their chance. Your best bet is to get experience elsewhere and then apply as an experienced RN.

I would agree that unfortunately it is very hard to get into Kaiser without any experience. I would suggest taking an offer that will provide you with acute care experience. I would do that for 1 year. Not sure if you have an interest in OB, ICU or ER but I do see a lot of positions for that. Gain your experience where you can and then try to get in with Kaiser.
