    California New Grad Contract

    I’m a recent grad in CA with no acute care experience. I was offered a pretty awesome position in a new grad program but it’s a 2 year contract. I’ve been told they aren’t enforceable in CA? I was given the contract and it says I won’t get my offer until the contract is signed which doesn’t feel right. The contract is pretty general and says if I sign it I must stay with them and work 72 hours per pay period for 24 months. Otherwise you pay back the full non pro rated amount it costs to train you. In my unit it would be 30k. I understand they want to get a return on their investment but it’s not even prorated. Anyone have experience with this in CA?

    UC Davis New Grad Residency Fall 2020

    Does anyone know if NICU or the birth center are hiring and if they have made calls for interviews? In the past it seems different units call at different times.

    Application approved by the BRN, but no ATT yet?

    They did my classes together. We all applied different days and were approved the same days besides a couple ppl that had delinquencies.

    I've only heard of questionnaires being sent after interviews.

    I’ve been told they direct your application to open positions based on your preceptorship or other experience. You don’t apply for specific positions. I included my desired units in my cover letter and why I would be a good fit there.

    I only included what was in the directions and did its just like the page said. I only uploaded the PDF with my cover letter, resume and transcripts. I uploaded it all to the resume upload and filled out the rest of the application.

    UC Davis New Grad Residency Fall 2020

    The website says its April 29-May 13. I thought it used to be a 1 week period? It looks like they will be updating their system starting tomorrow night so maybe that has something to do with the extended period. For people graduating this Spring I wonder if taking NCLEX before the start date will be a problem and if less people will be eligible to apply due to some schools not graduating on time.

    The LVN-RN bridge joins the RN students in 3rd semester. If ppl fail or drop out in 1st or 2nd they fill their spots in third semester with LVN students. They do a clinical class over the Summer and. then start in 3rd.

    ARC Fall 2020 Lottery

    All the CA nursing schools are dealing with changes daily and their top concern is current students. Some schools are weeks away from graduation and don't know if senior students will graduate on time. They probably don't want to say anything official until they are positive, and with changes constantly happening its probably hard to say anything for certain yet. Just a couple weeks ago ARC wasn't even gonna graduate 4th semester and now they are....

    ARC Fall 2020 Lottery

    ARC is going to repeat the semester this fall so IDK how that will affect you guys but I’m sure it will. All their class this semester were just canceled. sac state also held back 1-3 semester. They are only taking half the new students they usually do. SCC is moving on all their semesters.

    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.

    Volunteering at a pregnancy crisis center

    I had to Google it because I didn’t know it was a thing. From what I gathered it’s not fda approved nor evidenced based. Some doctors believe that if a women takes progesterone and doesn’t take her second abortion pill it can save the pregnancy. After looking into it more I decided I couldn’t volunteer anywhere that gave those out but even the ones that don’t give it out have links to information on it.

    Volunteering at a pregnancy crisis center

    I am supposed to graduate with my ADN in 9 weeks and women’s health is my passion. I currently volunteer as a birth Doula at a local hospital and was previously a breastfeeding peer counselor for WIC. I am in a RN-BSN collaborative so I will have my BSN in December. I know I will be a better candidate for the jobs I want after my BSN so I thought I could volunteer more until I graduate. I was looking into volunteering at a pregnancy crisis center that offers medical services and counseling. My concern is that most of them are faith based and a few even offer “abortion pill reversal”. Will volunteering for a faith based center negatively affect my future job prospects in OB? I know there are a lot of strong opinions on both sides of the abortion debate and I don’t want a hiring manager to assume I have certain views based on where I volunteered.
