Unfortunately, staRn stopped taking applications by the time I was applying. i have no idea how often they do the program in a year. 

 

Yesterday Mountain View Hospital posted new grad positions.  I don't have any personal knowledge of the hospital, but others have told me they hold it in high regard.

Yep, saw that yesterday. I have submitted applications, so waiting game begins. Hopefully they’ll call. Thanks!

UMC just posted an ICU training program open to new grads that had preceptorships in critical care (and other RNs with experience).

For what it's worth:  UMC just posted an internal employee only posting for new grad med-surg.  Because it is internal, the posting itself made not be useful for this conversation, but the three year commitment they're asking for seems notable.  It asks for three years at UMC with at least one year on the unit that does the initial hiring. 

Maybe I'm naive, but three years seems a tad excessive.  I believe UHS and HCA typically ask for two years.

Yeah you’re right, i had the same thought when I saw the post. Three years seems to be overkill - but I still submitted my application. We’ll see if they’ll give me a chance or anything.

I applied to HCA staRn programs for October but haven’t heard anything yet. No email or calls about it so I don’t know how it goes.

Hello all! Its been a year..
I work at valley still. The pay is still extremely high from the average. I wont give exact amount ..

I work on a med surg unit. So if you can land an IMC/ICU/L&D its gonna be more..

But all the Californians are still increasing everything..

Ill be honest thought, the demographic of Las Vegas has a lot of poor and homeless people. So the unit I work on it kind of the dumpster of the hospital. Im talking about homeless, pain medicine seekers, and just people that dont even speak english... regardless the unit is hard, but if you can work this unit, I honestly feel you can work any unit..

Add in severe mental illness and substance use and you've named a good number of the reasons that make Valley, UMC, Sunrise and maybe Desert Springs interesting places to work!
