Good luck! The interview process was not that bad; had a total of ten questions. 3 questions were senario based (chest pain; overdose and spider bite) the other were more about you and why nursing as a career.
@Teejay323ill keep you updated. As far as application interview process I had taken the rn exam back in April when I was still in my fourth semester And passed with an 85. As far as applying learned that If I wasn’t licensed my application wouldn’t get processed for interview until I had the license. Once I got licensed back in Early November I immediately Applied for the Rn position they had available and heard back from them late December that I had an interview for early January which was today. They said they would let me know within 30 days of a decision but it probably going to be sooner than that if I am picked contingent I pass background
@Overcasti graduated from Palomar college in norther county of San diego
@OvercastI had my interview today at RJ Donovan (state prison) and it went well I had 7 question 3 of which were scenario based questions. It was a two person panel interview where two supervising RNs where the ones interviewing me. They did stress that working any shifts and being mandated at times to stay overtime where part of the job and if I was ok with that. As a new nurse with student loan debt umm yes I’m ok with that lol. One of the gals that I know works there and she told me that nurse there are dropping like flies because some are retiring some are moving and most are contracted and their contract With the state has ended.
Thanks!! I don’t have my bsn yet but with state and county jobs they are hiring those with an adn. So I applied to the county jails but also to the state prison. As you already know the federal jobs do require BSN. Honestly my resume I don’t think stuck out that much. Corrections is an environment not many want to work so that’s why they don’t shy away from new grads.
Hey well I applied with the state as a new grad back in early November and I have an interview next week. I also interviewed last month with the county of San Diego to work at one of their correctional facilities and moved on to the second phase of the hiring process...so to answer your question yes they do hire new grads
Hey I also am a new graduate and applied to several positions and ranked at 2. I used to work for the state and the hiring process can be long. All those that are ranked 1 who apply will get interviews and if there are not enough pool of applicants from 1 then those that applied and are ranked 2 will get interviews. It just all depends. I heard it can take several months from date of application to point of hire.
