Location: Waterfront Activities Center of the University of Washington, Great Room

Additionally, treatment decision-making does not fall to patients alone – e.g. guardians may make decisions about continuing or halting treatment.

Information for All Advisors

Nurse residency programs for new graduates are competitive. Portland area is really tight with many nursing programs. We do not request practicum spots in the Vancouver area. There are multiple new graduate residency programs around the state, with many spots in Seattle/Tacoma area hospital systems, and also an ambulatory care residency at Kaiser. We discuss acute care and community opportunities in S2 (Nursing 409) with the students. The majority have jobs within 6 months, with more students having jobs secured by graduation than in past years. Students holding out for a specific hospital/specialty may have a delay, as do those moving out of state.
