    I applied for my first time, I graduate in 2 weeks.

    I was wondering about salary, it says $24. Other residencies seem to start considerably higher. Does the salary stay the same once the program is over? Is the huge difference between Adventist and, say, OHSU because of union vs non-union wages?

    Sorry, I'm from out of state so I have no idea how the wages work in Oregon.

    Good luck to everyone who has applied!!

    Wages depend on the area and cost of living. Areas with higher cost of living will expect to start out at a higher wage compared to areas with a lower cost of living.

    I am aware of how cost of living impacts pay scale.

    I am trying to figure out why there is a large gap in salaries within the relatively same geographical area. Legacy's residency salary lists at 30.77, Adventist lists their residency salary at 24.00.

    I am wondering if Legacy is union while Adventist is not. Or, does Adventist increase the pay once the residency is complete?

    EDIT: I just read that Legacy is non-union. So now I'm even more confused.

    24.00 seems low. Providence starts RNs at about 33.00, OHSU is the same. Maybe the salary increases once you finish the residency?

    I applied for this round. I was wondering the same regarding salary, and I think that the only logical explanation is that the pay will increase once offered a full time position. Any idea on when we hear about the next step?

    The job listing states "The interview process will start in late May, 2013. Details will be provided when your online application is complete and reviewed".
