Airlift Northwest?

  1. Does anyone here work for or have inside knowledge about Airlift Northwest? Ive been a flight nurse in AZ for 2 years. I do rotor only. I am looking at getting out of AZ and specifically want to work for Airlift Northwest / UofW.
    I have some specific questions and would be HAPPY to privately discuss if thats what it takes

    Anyone who works for a GREAT company where you feel valued, fairly compensated, well prepared and with an excellent safety record/ safety culture, please please PLEASE reply and tell me where you are. My heart is not set entirely on Washington!

    Hey aislrn, any chance you ended up working for airlift NW? I just got into a BSN program in Seattle and want to start planning my nursing career path so that I can be a competitive candidate for Airlift NW in the next 5-10 years. If so, I'd love to pick your brain about it!

    Nope. Never got any replies to any inquires. Here or directly with them. Still working rotor in AZ. I have no clue what they want but will always be happy to chat about general flight nurse stuff if you need it.

    I know at Airlift NW that they typically hire from within UW . Many of the flight nurses have worked at Harbourview MC (ER/ ICUS) or UW medicine. I have several friends that work there and thats the path they took. Also, they fly RN-RN and the one RN is a pediatric RN, so they will typically hire from Children's hospitals/ RNs with extensive PICU/ NICU experience. Its a highly regarded flight program and therefore, extremely hard to get into; much like many of the other large, established University Hospital based flight programs (Duke, U.Michigan Survival Flight, DHART, Stanford Life Flight etc)
