    Corrections Nurse for a New Grad

    THANK YOU for the time you took to give that feedback. How do you get hired as an ER nurse in a prison? If there’s no trauma for a day or so then do they just hang out?

    Corrections Nurse for a New Grad

    Thank you so much for the update! Very glad for you! When you say they put you on one of the yards, does that mean you’re outside? Can they mandate you to go/stay outside? I am just curious as I cannot handle the sun at all. How is it there with covid? Do you mind referencing the full time/permanent hire pay range? Pension? CONGRATS again!

    Los Angeles Valley college- Winter/Spring 2020

    Can anyone tell me if the application asked if you already had been in/are attending another RN program? I failed pharm second semester in my current program and instead of repeating at this school, I was timbinking if applying elsewhere. I am not a big fan of my school and my ore reqs will expire soon and I would have to retake the TEAS. Thank you.

    Corrections Nurse for a New Grad

    Thank you for your response... I‘d definitely consider working for a county prison, but I was more interested in a federal prison. The federal pension plan and benefits are amazing, but county offers pretty good options also. LA County Hospital plus a few other well known hospitals in LA offer pension plans in addition to a 401K option... but a federal employee takes the cake. Congrats on your interviews! Is it the county jail? May I ask if you have a BSN? What do you think made your resume stick out?
  5. Hopefully you’ll get feedback from someone who did the LVN to RN bridge, but some of them have shared with me that after making it through the annoying bridge introduction over the summer prior, that it’s not too bad. Supposedly the last two semesters of the RN program (which is shared with the LVN bridge students) are the easier semesters. Many of the bridge students are LVNs that already work at LA County Hospital and could help you with the computer system and share their pathophysiology and medicine banks (to get through the worksheets quicker).

    West Coast University

    They’ll take anyone with a 2.0 who’s willing to pay....there’s a campus in LA and Orange County and are both are atrociously expensive. does anyone know if West Coast accepts nursing students from other nursing schools? I’m a semester in at my current school and I want out.

    Pasadena City College ADN Program

    Hi guys... I heard Pasadena does some of their clinicals at County Hospital... how intense is your ORCHID training? Do you guys have to complete a clinical worksheet, medicine worksheet, nursing diagnosis and nursing care plan for each patient? And if your patient is discharged, do you have to do an SBAR plus another nursing plan and med sheet early in the morning before the day is started? I am a first semester at CONAH and we spend so much time on worksheet BS arhat we don’t go to sleep sometimes. I have to get to the hospital at 5 just to be sure my patient is still there or to do a new care plan if they have been d/c... What are the requirements as far as documentation? It’s completely taken away from concentrating on anything else at CONAH. For being such a reputable school I’m not impressed thus far.

    Mayo Clinic MN Summer 2019

    Did anyone get in without a BSN? I am graduating from a two year program and will no longer be considered a new grad once I get my BSN.

    USC Keck New Grad Residency 2019

    For those of you invited for interview, etc....do you all have a BSN as a new grad? I am graduating from LACONAH which is only a 2 year / AS program. By the time I earn a BSN I will no longer be considered a new grad. Thanks.

    Cedars-Sinai October 2019 New Graduate Residency

    Do any of you have experience with the documenting software they use? I want to apply to this next year but I’m in LA County School of Nursing and I’m only getting experience with their own customized computer system. I am concerned that not knowing a 3rd party software will be held against me.

    Cedars-Sinai October 2019 New Graduate Residency

    Do any new grads have experience with EPIC? I think that’s the software they use. I am currently an RN student at LA County College of Nursing and they’re using/teaching us their custom system called ORCHID....and it is a NIGHTMARE. I can’t imagine any reputable hospital using this system efficiently. I am concerned I am not learning a system that other hospitals use. What systems did you all use in school?
  18. Thank you for your response. I’m in the VitalSource Bookshelf. When I click on the big book it just opens it to read. Is there another icon? We download it from the VitalSource Bookshelf and not Lipcott, correct? Thanks again for your help ✌🏼
  19. Is anyone else having trouble downloading their e-books [to read off-line]? The books are in my vital source bookshelf, but there is no option to 'download' as the Lipcott instructions state. So irritated.
  20. Also, has anyone else received notification about their clinical assignment?
  21. Does anyone know how the book scholarship works? I submitted the book scholarship application last month but haven’t heard anything.
  22. They have a collaboration with CSULA and are in the middle of trying to coordinate something with CSUN so I’m thinking pursuing the BSN within he Cal State community shouldn’t be a problem. I don’t think Western Governers cares either. Not sure about going for a Masters/Doctorate.
  23. Anyone ordering the Cardiology Master? I’m thinking about ordering that.
  24. Why specifically the Classic III? I’m all ears.
  25. The lightweight II? I was thinking of getting a lightweight as well but the acoustics weren’t as good so did some further research. Interesting. The lightweight part is really attractive. I’ll have to think about that. Thanks.
