Kaiser Permenante Northwest Laying off 700 RN's

  1. 0
    I just learned from a friend that Kaiser is laying 700 registered nurses in their northwest region.

    The Portland vancouver are is about to be flooded with experienced RNs looking for work over the next several weeks.

    Where did you hear this? I called my medical recruiter friend to confirm. They hadn't heard it yet and are making some calls to confirm.

    Can anyone else confirm this? I put some feelers out, and no one has heard of this. Odd that it didn't hit the news on the first day these emails were sent.

    Yes, I have googled several times since then, and see nothing. However, there is a contract, from 2005 to October 2011, for all of the Northwest, it is due to expire. You can google it, but, I am not wanting to type all the info. I'm not sure that it even has anything to do with this "email". Perhaps?

    Yeah, layoffs of this size do not go unreported. I think the OP jumped the gun on this.
