    Kaweah Delta

    I interviewed a week ago and the recruiter said he would send my info to the hiring managers who would contact me in 1-2 weeks for an interview and then a possible offer. He said an ADN starts at 37 something and BSN is a dollar more. He asked all behavioral questions and wanted to know about me and why I chose nursing and Kaweah.

    UC Davis New Grad Residency Fall 2020

    I asked someone from HR and was told BSN is preferred and it depends on the unit but it is not required.

    UC Davis New Grad Residency Fall 2020

    It is preferred. I emailed someone from HR about degree requirements and was told it depends on the unit and their needs as to who moves forward but that it is very competitive with a large applicant pool.
  4. Sutter will hire you with an Interim permit and I have been told that previous students with an IP have been hired with Mercy.

    UC Davis New Grad Residency Fall 2020

    Is anyone planning on applying? Application period opens up April 29th. I am curious how it will work out with unit placement when so many programs in CA did not get to finish their preceptorships.

    To vaccinate or not to vaccinate, that is the question

    A lot of pediatricians, especially in California, are refusing patients not utd. I understand their reasoning but at the same time believe it does more harm then good. The ultimate goal is keeping kids healthy and if parents don’t have a pediatrician or don’t trust their pediatrician they will avoid taking their kids in for care. I saw a pediatrician with my kids a few years ago who told me he tells parents why he believes vaccines are important and that he will work with them on a schedule because he rather help their kids when they are sick then have them avoid him. I wish more pediatricians did that. Some parents will be swayed but not like that and the others won’t be swayed at all.

    To vaccinate or not to vaccinate, that is the question

    A lot of it is a distrust for pharmaceutical companies and politics. It’s not just the science people struggle with. Some people would be more apt to vaccinate if they could get single vaccines vs. combined but they are not made in the USA anymore. If they started making them then some ppl would think something must be wrong with the combo shots and still distrust the companies. There is also a lot of money and lobbying involved with pharmaceutical companies and politics that looks really bad. CDC employees who later get hired on as big players in pharmaceutical companies? How is that not a conflict of interest? Idk what the answer is but I think people have every right to be concerned and worried. The companies aren’t really known for their exemplary ethics and have been sued more than once in relation to vaccines not to mention all the other drugs they also make. I’m sure anyone who has dealt with healthcare knows the system is broken and it doesn’t exclude pharmaceutical companies.

    ARC/SCC ADN FALL 2019

    They will go over it all at orientation. Right now it’s still on spring 2019 but it will change to fall. You will probably have part of the summer to do it.

    ARC/SCC ADN FALL 2019

    First semester was Kaiser, Mercy and UC Davis. A third of the class at each. All in Sacramento.

    ARC/SCC ADN FALL 2019

    I think chamberlain puts more emphasis on the hesi vs gpa. I was accepted last year with a 3.7. Many other ppl I talked to had similar GPAs but only ppl with higher Hesi scores were offered a seat. It’s easier than the TEAS and Kaplan imo. Brush up on your basic bio for it. Good luck

    ARC/SCC ADN FALL 2019

    Don’t feel bad. Many students try multiple years before they get in and many of them have good grades. All the schools in California are super impacted. If you don’t mind relocating you will have more options and you can apply to chamberlain in Sac if you don’t mind a private school.

    ARC/SCC ADN FALL 2019

    I think overall every local school has a good reputation and will get you a job as long as you pass NCLEX. That’s just the opinion of some of the staff at a downtown sac hospital.

    ARC/SCC ADN FALL 2019

    Looking at NCLEX pass rates, schedule and distance are good ways to decide. I go to SCC and haven’t heard much about ARCs program in comparison. Staff at one of the hospital sites told me they prefer to hire students that didn’t go to Sierra because they do clinicals in Roseville where the patient population isn’t as diverse. Students in Sacramento area hospitals are exposed to more and they felt they were better prepared.

    ARC/SCC ADN FALL 2019

    The SCC uniforms are royal blue. They will go over all that with you at orientation. You should be able to look at previous semesters or fall semester schedules on SCC website. They can always change but should be similar. Our first semester lectures started at 0730 and clinical days were 0630.

    USFCA-Sacramento-Spring 2018 BSN

    Ya I took a couple practice quizzes and realized I need to brush up on my math. It is probably simple stuff but its just been a while since I have had to do any of that. The last math I did was stats a year ago. I am actually in Alaska right now but moving back to the folsom area next fall most likely unless I were to get in up here and not in CA. The program here is the only one within a 12 hour drive and they take 16 students lol so its not easy to get into. I was one alternate away from getting in last year so hopefully do better with Ca schools. I am taking my TEAS at the testing center here at UAF.

    USFCA-Sacramento-Spring 2018 BSN

    I am applying at ARC, Sierra, Sac state, Sac city and Chamberlain for Fall 18. I also have 2 Bs and an A in sciences for the exact same reason lol We were also in the middle of a move and kids the same age. I am taking my TEAS in January also. I have heard its easier than the Kaplan ENtrance exam which I took almost 2 years ago, studied 2 days and got a 77. I am confident I would do better now. I got a TEAS study book from Barnes and noble im gonna start studying in a week or so.
