Sorry for another thread like this but I didnt want to hijack someone else's. I'm graduating in May from nursing school here in Virginia and plan on moving to Portland in June or July. I was hoping to work at OHSU as it's pretty similar to the hospital I work at now but I was also thinking about the VA hospital, who has alot of openings listed now. I would ideally like to work in the Operating Room because that's where I'm at now as a care partner (nurse's aide more or less) but Im willing to put my time in elsewhere if I have to. Any suggestions on where to work or things you can tell me about the hospitals. I'm a 25 year old male with a bachelors in business also and would like to work with a slightly younger crowd if possible.
Another thing, I'm pretty sure that I want to live in the Hawthorne area and was wondering what the commute would be like to OHSU or the VA. Is biking possible? Could I bike to a public transport spot and lock my bike there or something like that? Thanks for any help and I will be coming out over this winter break to speak to both hospitals, both were very friendly over the phone.
edit: I'll be out for a week I think, so if there are other hospitals I should talk to please let me know.
