New Graduate Positions in Portland Area

  1. I am graduating in June and starting to apply for new graduate positions. I will apply for OHSU's new graduate ICU programs, but are there any others in the area people have gone through and really enjoyed? I am also trying to apply for the ICU one at Salem Hospital but can't figure out where to apply. My passions are pediatric critical care and pediatric oncology, but I have yet to find an internship that specific.

    I am in the most recent Salem residency cohort, as an adult critical care float. I applied through their careers section when I saw a listing up on the page. Don't forget about Legacy and Adventist new grad residencies. I am not sure about pediatric spots at any of them because it wasn't where I was looking, sorry. Good luck, the market for new grads here is brutal, but many in my cohort were newly graduated.

    I'm an applicant and awaiting good news from the schools I applied to, however, I work at a hospital in Portland and I keep up with their job postings and area hospitals job posting for nursing positions and it seems there are a lot of jobs out there,whether flex or full time. I know many of them require experience, but not all of them do. You should apply for the residency positions with legacy, OHSU and Salem. If possible look at a rural area because they will pay a large percentage of your student loans if you agree to work for them for a couple years. To be honest, some of these positions aren't being filled because no one wants to work night shift. I'd work night shift in a heart beat if I had to in order to gain experience, but I realize everyones situation is different. But if you are willing to work nights that may open more doors.

    Thank you both for the advice. I am working night shifts right now during my clinicals so I am okay with working nights. I will just be happy to get a job and figure I can't be picky as a new graduate. I have heard Salem's internship is wonderful. Good luck!
