  1. Hi all! Looking to get a little info from you all on L&D opportunities in the bay area. I have 1.5 years of ER experience and I'll hit my one year mark in L&D in three weeks. Currently in the Central Valley. I work on a busy unit with 300-350 deliveries per month. We manage any and all high risk cases. I float to high risk antepartum, OR, recovery, and SOMETIMES to postpartum. I haven't yet floated to triage but I just received my C-EFM so they'll start floating me soon. I do my own cervical exams and I place my own IUPCS and FSEs. My nursery experience is limited because we have nursery nurses, but I have my NRP and will assist them when needed. I'm very anxious to move to the bay area as this is where my family and community is. Additionally, my husband works in tech and while he's currently remote he'll most likely start going back to the office soon which is in San Francisco. I'm curious about my chances of getting an L&D position in the bay area with only one year of L&D experience. I know UCSF and Marin General require two years so those are out. Can anyone provide any information on requirements for other hospitals. I know Kaiser STATES they only require one year, but how often do they actually hire L&D RNs with my kind of experience? Any and all info is much appreciated! Thank you!

  3. Hiya! Wanting to connect with some other SF General Training Program applicants. Application opened/closed in late January and they've released the ranking list. Anyone have any insight on how they conduct interviews? I'm pretty far down on the list (in the 40s) and wondering about the likelihood of even getting an interview! Any insight is much appreciated.

    Zuckerberg SF General Emergency RN Training Program 2019

    @scRN1995 I also just applied for the perinatal training program! I got an email 2 days ago with the ranking. My hunch (based on prior applications to SF General) is that they'll reach out to us in the next few weeks/month with a notification that a position is officially open and we'll have to 'opt in' to show our interest. It then takes a while for hiring managers to reach out for interviews. I know it's a pretty slow process, so it could be several months until we get an interview! One thing I'm unclear on is how they move through the ranking list. Not sure if they just make their way down person to person for interviews? I'm pretty far down on the list so I'm worried it's a bit of a long shot to get an interview!
  5. @DFoustThank you for your response! And that's amazing, sounds like you kicked a$$ in the face of a lot of adversity. You should be super proud.
  6. Thanks @Nurse.Kelsey! Super helpful. Agree that those would be great things to know.
  7. Man @Sour Lemon, your name doesn't disappoint! 😂 Thanks for the comment! Definitely a good point to consider.
  8. Hi Fellow RNs! I'm an RN currently working in SF, and I'm thinking about creating a project to help out nursing students. Here's my question: Way back when, when you were a student RN, would you have been interested in a website or app where you could see someone's stats? By stats, I mean GPA, NCLEX prep course, hours/weeks of studying, how many times it took to pass, passed in how many questions, etc? To be clear, the info would NOT be connected to any identifiable information? I'm thinking you could see how other students with similar stats chose to study and then use that info to inform your own studying. Let me know in the comments if you think this would be used by nursing students/what other stats could be helpful. Can't wait to hear your opinion! Thanks!
