    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (Bakersfield, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied in June 2017 and they called me for an interview to be held at the end of July 2017. It was a panel of 8 RN supervisors from 8 institutions. They introduced themselves and provided a binder with interview questions. They asked you to open the binder as they read off one question and you answer as complete as possible. There were about 8 questions. They were all very nice and cordial. They apparently score you by points. 1-10. I felt at the time they were impressed by my answers. I was hired the following month.
