  1. This school is amazing. I learned so much in the program. Compared to other new grads when I first started working as RN, I felt I had way more hands on experience than nurses from other schools. Not gonna lie though, this program is challenging but ...

    LA COUNTY REGISTERED NURSE I/RELIEF NURSE

    @Badkugo yes I'm a current employee and I love it. Definitely opportunity for growth. LA County is huge so if you're unhappy in your position you can transfer to a different unit, different facility, etc. Outpatient clinics are definitely pretty ligh...

    LA COUNTY REGISTERED NURSE I/RELIEF NURSE

    @Badkugo if you plan to retire with county yes. They have good benefits. If you don't plan to stay here then no. Other hospitals pay a lot more!

    LA COUNTY REGISTERED NURSE I/RELIEF NURSE

    @Badkugo you will start at the bottom of the pay range unless you have at least 1 year of full time experience. I believe starting pay right now is about $39.50 per hour. Salary goes up annually plus whatever increase our union negotiates for us.

    @Badkugo outpatient and inpatient nurses get the same base pay and benefits. Some units get a $50 bonus per paycheck (e.g. jail, ER). Scheduling depends on the unit. Most outpatients are Monday through Friday and some are open Saturdays.

    They usually start calling within a week or 2. You can try calling nursing recruitment and ask which department is hiring and see if you can schedule an interview.
  9. Don't be so hard on yourself! Just take it as an opportunity for learning. Double check next time before removing an IV especially if the patient has multiples. Learn from it and let it go. I wouldn't even bring it up again especially if your precept...

    Can anyone provide insight as to how clinical hours are managed I.e. how many are required per week, max per day, per semester, total in the program? I'm currently in a MSN NP program (long story) but I'm having to drop out this term because of the e...

    RN to BSN or straight to BSN??

    Do your research. Does your area hire ADNs? If not, then you may want to go for your BSN. I know it sucks going to an ADN program knowing you want a BSN but sometimes that's how life works. I went through a similar situation but luckily my area hires...

    New Grad New Location Advice

    I would look into the job markets where you currently live and where you want to move to. If you have better job prospects where you currently live then get experience there and then move.

    There isn't much you can do to speed up the initial process. Make sure you submit all of your documents required to avoid delays like resume and BLS. After you apply you'll be asked to take an online test so take it as soon as you are able to. I reco...
