  • I worked in the NICU department(s) in the hospital. HR and the unit were adamant about their needs for you to submit before starting the assignment however, ghosted you and your company when it came to orientation time and place. I ended up e-mailing the nurse manager that I had interviewed with the night before orientation to find out where to go. Never heard from HR. The orientation was unorganized and "put together" last minute. The other travelers had the same difficulties. Once on the unit, the assignments were typically great. 2-3 babies per RN. Occasionally, after a month and a half of being here, they gave me an admit, surgical or stable vent. Super stoked about that. The moral of the unit was okay. Travelers got paid the same if not less than the staff (including stipends). I think the worst part for me was how the charge nurses (mainly 2) and the resus (unit helper) treated us. They would put you in a pod alone and no one would check on you for a bathroom or lunch break and when you would ask, it seemed like they were too busy (and maybe they were busy but they shouldn't have staff on their lonesome if they can't relieve them.) I was talked down to by a lot of nurses. There were several that were amazing and super helpful too. Just be prepared to look everything up by policy (which is in the CPU and confusing). I basically scooted by with my learned skills from my experience. 05/19/2018
  • Housing was approximately 25 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was private. Housing was located in city of Portland. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. N/A
  • I worked in the Peds ED department(s) in the hospital. Very friendly in my department towards travelers. Doctors are a pleasant to work with and are open to recommendations from the nurses if it will be beneficial for the patient. It is a teaching facility so you work with residents and medical students. For charting they use EPIC. A lot of new nurses which can be a bit stressful on staff however they still manage to work together and help wherever they can especially on busy shifts. I'm very flexible with scheduling so not too much to comment on in that regard. I've requested some days off which were given. All I asked for being on night shift was block scheduling which I was pretty much given for most of my assignment.I worked night shift so parking was not an issue. It is free after 5 pm until 8 am. However for day or mid shifts parking is a huge problem. The staffing company for the hospital is a bit disorganized and I had to call my recruiting company to follow up on background checks and paperwork.For housing if there is residential parking you can apply for a permit which costs 60 dollars a year and can be used anywhere in that zone. The day you go to drop off the application they give you a temporary right then and there. Oregon has so much to offer especially during the summer if you are into outdoor activities. Cool city with friendly people. 06/22/2016
  • Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Private apartment. Housing was located in city of Portland. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Used for housing. Can negotiate prices
  • I worked in the pacu department(s) in the hospital. Unprofessionalism among staff. Patronizing. Condescending. Management does not appropriately address staff professionalism. High drama among staff. High level of gossip. No confidentiality with charge nurses. Moderate level of focus on safe patient care. Bring in young nurses that are arrogant, un-teachable and unapproachable who believe they have quality and quantity of experience they do not have. Put too young of staff in leadership positions or allow young staff to assume the roll independently without being corrected by management. Parking is $13-$18/day. There is more traffic here than Houston or Dallas during rush hour. 350sq ft apt ranges from $1300-1800. Fun city. Lots to do. Find another facility. They are losing nurses that are new hires and cannot keep travelers. It is union. There is no call in the PACU for travel. 05/12/2016
  • Housing was approximately 13 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was private. Housing was located in city of portland. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. Fight for the highest pay you can because parking and the cost of living within a reasonable 30 min commuting distance is excessive especially with a 3-6mo commitment.
  • I worked in the surgery department(s) in the hospital. Please save yourself the stress of signing here. I CANNOT emphasize enough IT IS NOT WORTH working here!!!!! Great facility. You will pay $8-18/day. You will commute. Period. Unless you live ON campus. Then you will NOT be able to park on campus. You will HAVE to park your car in a lot 35 min away. YES! You read that correctly. 10 min walk to a tram 10 min tram ride 10-15 min walk to your car. Tram does not run on Sundays. You can take an Uber, it is $12 to your car. Unconvinced? Tickets are $100. You will only park illegally once. The monthly parking pass that is 35min away costs $160. Not having access to your car when you need it, priceless. Parking is NOT traveler friendly and the facility does NOTHING to accommodate travelers. They think they do, but none of their suggestions are actually practical. It is also an issue for all staff. 02/04/2016
