Mission-focused excellence

Working in an environment where excellence is standard and quality is valued makes a difference for our nurses on a daily basis.

The Adventist Health Portland difference

Many people choose clinical professions because they truly wanted to make a difference. Sadly, many have also found themselves stuck in environments where they can’t provide the quality of care they strive to give.

It’s different here.

At Adventist Health, you’re part of a team on a mission — and not just any mission. Our desire to provide a whole-person healing ministry to each patient means there is a goal and a mission driving everything we do. We depend on mission-minded nurses to carry that holistic healing to each patient every day.

A caring team

Being part of a caring team working together to provide the best patient care can make your daily work life easier, happier and more effective. In fact, when we’ve surveyed our employees about their satisfaction, the quality and teamwork of co-workers is one of our employees’ favorite things about working for Adventist Health Portland.

Our hospital and the entire Adventist Health network are also committed to your personal well-being as part of our team. In fact, we sponsor a popular wellness program that provides discounts and other incentives to help employees improve and maintain their health.

Your well-being combined with a supportive and collaborative work environment gives you a chance to provide the kind of quality patient care you’re passionate about in any of our nursing units, from our newest patients in the Family Birth Place to our most critical patients in ICU/CVICU.

"The patient care team and leadership team are my WHY in what I do. Together we are privileged to care for an underserved population with clinical excellence, compassion and empathy that is evidenced in the impact we have on our patients' outcomes."
