Posted

Hi All!

I am going to be moving back to the greater Portland area within the next 6 months or so. My goal is to be a flight nurse but I need/very much want trauma ICU experience. I currently have 2 years Stepdown/PCU experience and I've been a travel nurse for 6 months of that. Any suggestions on how to get in to a trauma ICU unit? I know it's pretty much between Emanuel and OHSU but breaking in to that tight knit community is difficult. Thank you! :)
