    It's weird that some people haven't heard from any departments or gotten a rejection email. This is after we "heard" that everything was going to be done by mid-June. So I really wonder how this whole process works. But if you think about it, the Residency doesn't even start until August. Oh well, hopefully we all hear something soon so we don't have to remain hung up on this. :)

    I.V. Therapy Certification Murrieta/Temecula

    I don't think you necessarily need it, but it does help beef up the resume. I would recommend it. Especially if you did not have a lot of experience with IVs throughout school. I know there is a company in the LA area that does a two day IV certification for RNs. AANE Consultants. I would look into that if you want to certification - plus it gives you contact hours. Hopefully that helps!

    What can you tell me about Modesto, CA area?

    The distance from center of city to center of the other is about 15 miles. You would go straight north on 99 highway. Traffic varies, but it's 2-3 lanes each way (it changes from 3-2 at some points). So not too far. The traffic was never bad when I was driving from Merced to Turlock when I was out there (that was about 30 miles). So it shouldn't be too much. Unless something drastic happens on the hwy, I think your commute would be rather reasonable. :) Hopefully that helps!

    What can you tell me about Modesto, CA area?

    If you aren't scared of a little commute, I recommend Turlock, CA. It's like a small midwest town in the valley of California. They have a University there that's really nice. I stayed there for awhile and all the people I met out at restaurants and stuff were very nice (including some city officials!). There is shady areas to every city - that goes without saying. But it's away from Modesto maybe like 20ish miles? And the housing there looks nice. It's a very nice smaller town and you can't beat the fruit stands! :) If you don't mind a little commute, I'd check out Turlock. But it's completely up to you! Just throwing out my ideas if you're kind of turned off to Modesto.

    Kpter - no rejection email yet, right? There's still hope! Chin up, love. Don't worry, I haven't gotten called yet either. We can just try to stay positive until the rejection is positive or we have an interview.

    Every email that pops up on my computer gives me PVCs. Hoping for good news for all of us!

    lovepeacelove: I live in Southern Cali - about 85 miles away from where Loma Linda Med Center is. I told them I was willing to relocate closer - if necessary. So, we'll see!

    RNWannabeLA she called me too last week about changing from acute to intermediate - which is fine with me. I have experience in acute - but I guess TONS of people applied to acute. I got the generic email today also. So, if you did get the generic that's a good thing or does everyone get one?? I didn't know if HR cut the numbers before sending it onto managers.

    The changed the email address the day the residency opened. I checked before I sent it all in. It was confusing so I ended up just faxing my stuff. But yeah - they changed the email contact. Thankfully they still took yours! I couldn't imagine. Glad you got it all sorted out. Best of luck!
