Hello All,

I've been trying to find some good feedback on new grad job opportunities in the Portland-Metro area, but much of what I've read is conflicting, some say it's hard for the new grads and others say it's not. I am an Oregonian, but currently living in Philly, PA attending an accelerated BSN program. My plan is to return home in September after I graduate, but I'm starting to get concerned about the opportunities in PDX (and surrounding) for new grads. There a tons here in Philly, and I would get a job right away to gain some experience, but I really don't want to stay here another year, I want to go home! :o If there's anyone out there who feels they know the real deal on this subject, I'd greatly appreciate hearing from you! THANK YOU!

As a recent new grad (Dec 2006) of a BSN accelerated program, I have to say that I too had serious fears of getting a job. Don't let what you read on this website discourage you...there are quite a few opportunities out there. I ended up doing the Legacy internship, which is available a couple of times a year. Also, the Providence system will also take some new grads, as will OHSU, and the Veteran's Hospital. Sunnyside Kaiser also has an internship program for new grads that is offered 1-2 times a year, I think. The first place to start is to look up these hospitals' websites and contact the HR, asking about opportunities for new grads. Just looking at the joblistings may or may not provide the info you need. Good luck!
