    WGU FNP program

    I am Wondering the same thing. I did the RN-BSN with WGU and wonder how the BSN-FNP coursework compares with the BSN program? Also wonder if you have to find your own preceptor.

    Oregon License by Endorsement

    @BarefootNurse3 I applied for endorsement to Oregon 6/13 along with sending request for california to send proof of NCLEX passing and RN license verification and still waiting. Was advised the whole process can take 2-4 months.

    VA RN NEW GRAD PROGRAM PALO ALTO LIVERMORE MENLO PARK 2020

    @MojoJojo this is an email I received: The hiring manager will be reviewing resumes and calling individuals for interviews between 7/13/2020-8/17/2020. Please be patient this process is lengthy since they are reviewing over 500 applicant resumes. If you do not receive a call for interview by 8/17/2020, you most likely have not been selected. Anyone who is not selected and continues to meet the education requirements may apply to the next cohort.

    VA RN NEW GRAD PROGRAM PALO ALTO LIVERMORE MENLO PARK 2020

    @MurseJojo I was just told today that livermore only has extended care services for their new grads (long-term, and hospice), and palo alto does the acute care, not sure what others in palo alto, and not sure about menlo park. I applied for acute care and surgical. Would have been open to others but only lets you select 2.

    VA RN NEW GRAD PROGRAM PALO ALTO LIVERMORE MENLO PARK 2020

    Hello @MurseJojo, I only selected 1 location because I thought all of the locations held new grad programs for every department at each location, but I guess only certain locations only have certain departments available at their locations.
  8. Anyone apply to the VA RN NEW GRAD PROGRAM for PALO ALTO, LIVERMORE, or MENLO PARK and heard anything back yet? I just received an email that I was selected to move forward in the process and that my application has been sent to the hiring manager.

    VA Palo Alto

    when you say 6 12's, that is 6 days in a row working 12 hours shifts, not the usual 3 days on 12 hours shifts and then get 4 days off?

    Nurse Residency Programs in Oregon, HELP!

    @OliveOyl91 that is awesome. I have also heard great things about them and crossing my fingers that I am chose for one of the locations. I applied at the end of April. I am interested in the obstetrics (L&D/Postpartum) unit the most but chose others as well. Was advised that Obstetrics is only offered in Eugene.

    Nurse Residency Programs in Oregon, HELP!

    @OliveOyl91 Do you know what the starting pay for the New grad RN's at Peace Health? What is the process after you get selected? I applied for the New grad program for Eugene, vancouver, and longview. I believe applications just closed yesterday may 25 and hopefully will hear back from someone the beginning of June. @novayogi96 I have my ADN and planning on doing my BSN while working as an RN.

    LVN/LPN New Grad California Salary 2019-2020

    I have never worked in LA but I know a few people who transferred down there from the Bay Area and they took like a $10 pay cut. Not sure if that is the same for the whole area down there. And I didn’t negotiate as a new grad and wouldn’t imagine negotiating because you are new and should take whatever is offered to get the experience in so you can later apply to other jobs that pay higher. Like I said I started off at an agency getting paid $15 per hour which was sad cuz the CNAs would tell me that they got paid $18 where I would go fill in at but it was a sacrifice I made to gain experience and get it on my resume. A few short years later I landed a job starting at $39 so was worth the low paying sacrifice.

    LVN/LPN New Grad California Salary 2019-2020

    It depends on where you work. I’m from the Bay Area. When I graduated my LVN in 2013, I worked for an agency I believe getting paid $15 per hour. Then I worked for a Skilled nursing facility about a year later for $23. Then a year after that I got into Kaiser getting paid $39 starting and now get paid in the $40s.

    Thank you. What kind of questions did they ask you if you remember? Did they offer you a residency the same day or have to get back to you later?
