Harborview is an integral component within UW Medicine Health System. As the region's only adult and pediatric level one trauma center and regional burn center; a renowned teaching and research environment; and a public/safety-net hospital for our diverse community, Harborview offers a rich learning environment.
There are four planned Nurse Residency Cohorts for 2017, with multiple employment start date opportunities.
Residency opportunities typically include acute care areas such as Med/Surg/Telemetry; Neurosciences; Burns/Plastics/Pediatrics; Trauma Orthopedics; Trauma Surgery; Planned Surgery; Trauma Rehabilitation; and Psychiatry.
Please note there is a minimum two year commitment timeframe for residency hires to these areas.
(Emergency Services and Intensive Care Units (ICUs) are also areas that occasionally have entry-level RN residency opportunities. At this time there are no immediate opportunities for entry level RNs within the ICUs. There are definitely future pathways to critical areas within Harborview).
