UCLA Clinical Care Partner

Posted

Specializes in Labor and Delivery. Has 2 years experience.

Does anyone work at UCLA as a Clinical Care Partner, also known as a CNA, or has in the past? On average, how many patients are you assigned a shift? What is your typical shift like?

For nursing students, are you able to perform/assist with advanced skill or do you stay within a CNA's scope of practice? Also, were you able to transition into a new grad position?

Thanx in advance!

As someone currently in the hiring process for this position, I would like to know the answers to your questions myself. Have you been hired as a PCP recently? If so when did you interview? The suspense is killing me!! I was asked for references almost 2 weeks ago and haven't heard a peep.

I used to volunteer at UCLA, but am not employed there. I have heard that some units only hire new grads who have worked as CNAs on their unit. I also worked with a clinical care partner who was a new grad who was not hired. it all depends.

Hearing back from them can definitely take a while, anywhere from 4-6 weeks. You just have to be patient.

Are you a nursing student? Good luck to you!

Thanx for the info! Do you know which units those are that prefer to hire their CNAs as new grads?

sorry, i do not know exactly which unit. good luck!

Yes, I just finished my first year in a BSN program. Are there any differences in the duties between student and non student care partners?

Hello @babesinboots i was wondering if you can help give me info on the LATTC campus? I saw you posted in the thread and wanted to know how com eyou didn't end up going there? -Thank you

Hello @babesinboots--thanks for the PM, but I sadly cannot respond because it says I'm not active enough on all nurses. I was wondering how long it took for the LATTC school took to respond to you that you were in the cohort from the time you applied? I'll be going in March to do my paperwork. ---Feel free to PM you, I just won't be able to message you back privately. Thank you.
