    I just learned that CV was the first to interview (which never happens lol). So, like mentioned above, there are plenty of opportunities. Good luck guys!

    Why do some people look down on LPNs?

    Many of our LVNs are some of the best nurses I've worked with. Some are back in school while others are happy with where they are. I'm often asking their input on things. :)

    CV does not do phone interviews, at least they haven't for the past several rounds.

    I can't get an answer out of them for that, I'm sorry. If I run into the recruiter soon, I'll ask her. :)

    I never had my online status change for CV, even after I was hired.

    Chula Vista applicants, please know they're still running through applications. Interviews will occur in December.

    Hello, there! Chula Vista is usually the last to call or email, so try not to freak if other Sharps start coming through earlier. Best of luck to you all!

    SHARP New Grad Nurse Residency Programs, Summer 2014

    You're welcome. I should clarify that the usual New Grad positions are for Med-Surg/PCU rotations or unit-based-only rotations such as PCU, L&D or ER. After you complete the rotation, the positions are more varied for a unit. You normally still need to apply for a position after the rotation ends. Does that make sense? I haven't had my daily dose of coffee yet. :)

    It depends on the staffing needs of the hospitals. Usually I've seen all units available except ICU environments. The ICU may open up after the nurse has completed their rotation through the new grad program. I have not seen new grad openings in the OR or PACU. I hope this helps. Good luck to all. :)

    do you follow up with your patients?

    I work oncology, so quite often we get to know the names of folks who come in frequently. It's a favorite thing to do on our unit, visiting those we haven't seen in awhile. I will also check on people who were transferred to other units if I cared for them for a length of time. Several of our nurses do this and it's always been welcomed by patients as well as family. I don't look up their charts, though, as I'm not their nurse anymore.

    Patient Discharges

    It depends on if it's a simple home discharge or if case management/SNF are involved. Home discharges normally take us 15 minutes to an hour, depending on if the MD has placed correct orders and has done med reconciliation. If we need consultations, it may take a bit longer. Transfers to facilities are another matter. They can take a few hours, especially if an ambulance is needed for transport. The paperwork and report-calling also take a lot of time. We're trying a number of things to expedite the process.

    SHARP Winter 2013/2014 New Nurse Residency

    I don't think so. A lot of us are from SD, but a few were hired from outside of the city and some programs hired outside the state. And you're welcome!

    I think someone asked the pay rate for new grads. The base pay is/was 34.53 with an extra differential for BSN, night shift and evenings. I can't remember the differentials. Hope that helps. :)
