    @ Kooky Korky, 4/20 has become an informal sort of 'holiday' for pot smokers. The idea is they all light up on 4/20 (more so than usual.) Edibles are food laced with marijuana AKA Alice B. Toklas brownies.
    In California the pot smokers were really excited this year given it was legalized November 2016...well, excited for pot smokers, they were not getting off the couch to have smoke-outs that I'm aware of.
    Actually, they were definitely getting off the couch this year to have smoke outs. Myself, a friend, and her 3 and 7 year old went to Cal Academy of Sciences at Golden Gate Park not thinking about the date and there was a huge smoke out there. We realized it when leaving the museum because it took us over an hour to get out of the parking garage where a lot of those indulging parked and were still partaking.

    I tried to get a hospital job to no avail. I ended up taking an RN position for a medical information/tech company. I am on the phone all day either doing health coaching or helping members find resources or current medical information, but so far it's great. Normal hours, decent pay, no weekends, and something very simple as finding a cancer patient a ride to their treatment makes such a difference in their lives!

    Thanks Reebles and valpal15. Sounds like maybe some units are done interviewing, but not all. I heard that some people had gotten the skills survey already but hadn't heard of anyone getting offers yet.
    Do you have any idea of the units those who got the skills survey interviewed with?

    At a former hospital I worked at, pregnant nurses weren't assigned to isolation rooms...

    my application status just switched from the "routed" to "intvw" status. I'm wondering how often UCD does residency, because I don't think I'll have my license by the start date. Can I ask to be considered for the next cohort?
    The application statuses are not individualized, so if you haven't or do not in the future get a call for an interview, it just means they are in the interview process for all applicants.

    Someone on a facebook group I am on had an interview today with the transplant/metabolic unit and was told that that specific unit was hiring 3 people. I don't know if that helps, but its more information.

    Back home after my interview. I realized after I left I didn't ask how many positions they were hiring. Sorry. My interview was a panel with 3 people, but they were very warm and welcoming. The nurse manager said "the interview went realIy well" which gives me hope. She said I should hear back by the week of Labor Day, after all the interviews. Good luck everyone.

    Thanks! I was offered times next week to interview. They didn't say when a decision would be made but I am assuming soon since Sept 30th is the start date.

    Thanks! No phone screening, just asked if I was interested in interviewing and I of course said definitely! It's for the Accelerated access med-surg unit.
