Currently our students who are employed are taking positions in the hospital setting as entry-level nurses.  Several of our graduates have been hired and will be working at the Children’s Hospital LA, Harbor UCLA, Cardio-thoracic Critical Care Unit at UCLA, UCSF Fresno Cardiac Unit and at Torrance memorial Medical Center, Telemetry unit. In addition to the above, we have had students accept jobs in community health settings in South Central Los Angeles, Planned Parenthood, as well as for clinical research programs

The majority of our student clinical rotations occur in facilities, such as medical centers and schools, located in medically underserved and nursing shortage areas. The experience in these settings will provide our students with an excellent opportunity to learn firsthand, community, prevention health concepts and principles across the lifespan.  Moreover, our students will be able to work with a diverse population of students and families from vulnerable populations and those students and families that reflect the diverse population that we serve as nurses.
