Questions and Answers about Torrance Memorial’s New Graduate RN Open House on Saturday, January 7, 2017

Updated 12-29-16

When is your New Graduate RN Open House?
Our Open House for new grads will be Saturday, January 7, 2017 from 8:30am-12:00pm in the Hoffman Health Conference Center (located on the west side of campus off Skypark Drive and Medical Center Drive). Plenty of free parking is available in the West Tower Parking Garage.

What if I can’t make it to the Open House?
If you are unable to attend the Open House, you can still apply for a new graduate RN position once the postings appear on the web site. It’s a good idea to check the web site twice a week to avoid missing the submission period.

Do I need a reservation for the Open House?
Reservations are not being taken. Please arrive when you can and if necessary, be prepared to wait. We want to meet everyone! Light refreshments will be offered. Sorry, we are unable to provide campus tours during the Open House.

How will the Open House work?
When you arrive, you will be greeted and given two brief forms to complete. Please be prepared to indicate the top three areas where you would most like to work. We anticipate openings on both shifts (7a-7p and 7p-7a) in Oncology, Med-Surg SURGICAL (Orthopedics; Bariatrics) Med-Surg MEDICAL (Medical; Renal; GYN), Telemetry (“PCU”), ICU, Burn ICU, and Mother-Baby. You will be asked for your resume by different people so please bring multiple copies. When it’s your turn, you will most likely have only a brief period of time to chat with the management team of your preferred unit(s). After the event is over, you will be contacted by phone in a few weeks if you were selected for a formal interview.

Do I need a BSN? RN license?
A completed BSN (or MSN) is a requirement for hire into our new graduate RN residency. While you don’t need a CA RN license to apply for a position, you will need to have it before the residency begins (March 9, 2017).

How do I apply for a New Graduate RN position?
The job posting is not yet on our web site but it’s a good idea to check it twice a week.

How can I get more information about your residency?

What else should I know about in advance?
Torrance Memorial is a GREAT place to work with friendly, talented, and dedicated staff who support new grads! Our Lundquist Tower is beautiful and modern. We are Magnet designated and an independent, locally-owned and governed medical center. We love our new grads and see the 18 week residency as a valuable investment in our future. You will quickly feel our caring atmosphere and realize that at Torrance Memorial, you are a part of something bigger!
