The Antelope Valley is an arid plateau located between the Tehachapi and San Gabriel Mountains. It enjoys clear air and strong winds, and fantastic visibility. While not everyone will appreciate the rugged beauty of the desert and the rugged mountains nearby, others find the scenery spectacular. Dotting the landscape are the Antelope Valley's trademark Joshua Trees, which only grow in the Mojave Desert.
The Antelope Valley began as a community nearly a century ago. Its original industries were agriculture and mining, and those persist to this day with boron and copper mining going on in the northern hills and carrots and onions growing in the outlying areas. However, the region is now dominated by the aerospace industry, with the core work being done in and around either Air Force Plant 42 or Edwards Air Force Base. Economically, the area is dominated by its two largest cities, Palmdale and Lancaster. Between the two cities, a population of over 500,000 people call the Antelope Valley home. Roughly half of the breadwinners in the area commute to jobs closer to the nearby urban center of Los Angeles, but the others work near where they live. Attracted by affordable housing, clean air, and freedom from the crowding and congestion of the big city, the residents of the Antelope Valley (or "A.V." to the locals) also boast proximity to some interesting local attractions.
Three (3) years experience as a hospital nurse. Two (2) years experience in a quality improvement role. Experience in a 'patient advocate' role to insure a 'patient centered focus. Familiarity with medical procedures and terminology. Strong planning, organizing, interpersonal and conflict resolution skills. Detailed knowledge of Title 22, JCAHO and NCQA requirements for licensure and accreditation. Proficient with PC applications including database, spreadsheet, and word processing. Current California RN license.
Home to Judy Garland, John Wayne and Frank Zappa the famous musician, Lancaster is a one of the oldest non-coastal towns in the United States. The city has a super indoor mall called Park City Center where many come to shop and visit. Lancaster is also famous for being quite innovative and always adopting advanced technology before some of the other cities.
