    Legacy RN Versant Residency 2015 Winter

    What GPA do you need to be offered an interview? I know you have to have over a 3.2 for consideration but how close to a 4.0 would an applicant realistically need?

    Portland Job Market for New Grad RNs

    Portland Job Market for New Grad RNs

    To my knowledge you only get notified by allnurses if you get a private message sent to you. And I have to think a year at am LTC counts as experience for the hospital. Obviously critical care settings may not accept it. From what I've been told the job market is better for nurses. There are a ton of full time jobs, yes I look at jobs even though I'm a year from graduating. I wish more places were willing to train new grads but if someone can get a healthcare job while in school they can try to network themselves onto that unit or other units in the hospital.

    Portland Job Market for New Grad RNs

    Thanks, when I graduate next year I'll just make sure I'm set up with a job at the hospital I work at and if not I'll ally at LTC. Do you know if 1 year at a LTC qualifies you for a hospital ? I'm really hoping the unit I complete my senior practicum hires me. So to other folks who are graduating soon try to do your practicum on a unit that has a history of hiring new grads.

    Portland Job Market for New Grad RNs

    To that I would ask if you are referring to BSN or ADN nurses? There are a lot of job openings out there and what I find interesting is a lot of the nursing jobs require a year of experience and a BSN yet some people on here (oregon allnurses) are being hired as ADNs in critical care etc, without a residency program, which is fantastic! But if a job requires a year of RN experience how are new grads being hired? I ask this because I am in a BSN program and currently work at a major hospital in Portland and am still worried I won't get hired as a new grad. I would just have to think that it is great if a manager wants to hire you but doesn't HR have to make the final decision?? I wont have my BSN for a year and I am already worried about finding a job even though it is easier to find a hospital job in Portland now as opposed to a few years ago. There was even a person who graduated from ITT that I know and they work in the ED as basically their first RN job. Gives me hope.

    Linfield College ABSN Summer 14 Cohort

    Thanks...it works. Maybe we should start a fb group as well.

    ktj777...Please create a facebook group! I'm pretty sure one hasn't been created yet. And it's really expensive to live near campus, you should look into a place in Beaverton, Tigard or even Hillsboro. Obviously if you get a roommate that would be a plus. If you don't want to use a car for transportation then Beaverton and NW Portland are your best bet for an easier commute.

    Portland Area nursing....where did you apply?

    Technically, I still haven't heard back from OHSU's 3 year bsn program. But they don't send out notification until June. So, I'm going to attend Linfield. It's a great program and I'm excited to begin!

    Landij, Sorry to hear that, I may be receiving such things today then, for the ABSN at Linfield. You have a really good resume, I think its awesome you work with at risk youth. I hope you get in somewhere, I'm surprised you weren't accepted to Linfield as they have a strong community based focus.
