Transition begins when the Med Surg RN attends our Basic Arrhythmia course (ACLS) and is reassigned to the Telemetry/DOU unit.

Living in Los Angeles

Everyone has their vision, their dream, and palm trees sway in the warm breeze under a gauzy sky. Star sightings, Sunset Boulevard, Malibu. This is Los Angeles, but is it really?

Los Angeles is a sprawling metropolis and the second largest city in the country.

Population: 9.8 million. Ethnic mix: the most diverse in the country. Its borders stretch from the beaches of the Pacific Ocean to the eastern borders of the Palm Desert, from the southern reaches toward San Diego to the northern boundaries of the San Fernando Valley. This is Los Angeles, and it is a welcoming community.
