We do not have a formal new graduate program. We encourage new graduate nurses to begin their career at Hoag in clinical support roles such as Patient Care Assistants, Telemetry Techs, Emergency Care Techs, etc. All current openings can be found on our careers site. You can apply to these positions at any time throughout the year.
We often find that getting your foot in the door to gain experience of the culture, the team, and knowledge of our patient population here at the organization, can help prepare you for the transition into the role of Clinical Nurse I. The length of transition in a support role to Clinical Nurse I can take 12 – 24 months. This is dependent on you as an employee as well as needs of the organization. At the time of transition, all applicants will go through a formal interview with the department to be considered as a Clinical Nurse I.
