The positions close in the next week. It requires you to come up here for an Orientation in Late may on a Friday and all day Saturday.

    I only know about these because of friend of mine os in the same situation. Our group always hires Summer Nurse Tech's.

    University of Washington Medical Center has been ranked among the top hospitals nationally by U.S. News and World Report's annual guide to "America's Best Hospitals" since 1993, and has been recognized five times as a Magnet Hospital by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. We hire nursing students as Nursing Technicians in a variety of clinical areas after completion of at least one quarter in a nursing program. To apply, please visit our website at www.uwmcnursing.org.

    - Nursing Technicians must be registered with the State of Washington prior to starting work. The registration forms can be downloaded from: https://fortress.wa.gov/doh/hpqa1/hp...NurseTechW.pdf.

    - The hourly rate of pay is $14.77 per hour with $1.50/hour evening and $2.25/hour night shift differentials.

    - The Nursing Technician role varies among different clinical areas and may be similar in scope to a Hospital Assistant (CNA). Expectations of the role are included in department manager interviews.

    - For Summer hires, orientation is approximately 2 weeks in length. Part of this orientation will be completed centrally with other new Patient Care Services employees and the rest of the time will occur on the individual unit or clinic. For Nursing Technicians hired at other times, orientation can be arranged in different sessions depending on your availability. It may take longer than 2 weeks to complete the required orientation classes.

    - Hourly employees at the University of Washington are limited to a total number of hours worked per 12 months. Beginning on your date of hire, you are allowed to work up to 950 hours per 12 consecutive months. (exception: UW students - no limit for hours)

    - Nursing Technicians must be currently certified in CPR.

    - We must receive documentation from your nursing school that verifies the following:
    Current enrollment in a State Board of Nursing approved nursing education program.
    Satisfactory completion of each term (semester or quarter).
    Current level of educational preparation, including nursing knowledge and skills covered to date. (Options for meeting this requirement include clinical evaluations, skills checklists AND a letter from your nursing school.)
    Please arrange for your nursing school to send this directly to UWMC Nursing Personnel, 1959 NE Pacific St, Box 356152, Seattle, WA 98195-6152, or email nurspers [at] u.washington [dot] edu.
