At Oakwood, we believe in rewarding and supporting our talented nurses. That means removing hassles, cutting red tape and helping you stay patient-focused. Our warm environment is designed to sustain the energy and enthusiasm for a lifetime career, which translates into superior patient outcomes and higher satisfaction scores for our hospital team.

We profoundly appreciate that you need a life outside Oakwood nursing. That means having time for friends, dates, hobbies and passions when your shift is through. Our after-work Oakwood Creative Writing workshop is a great example of this commitment. Now in its seventh year, the workshop meets weekly and publishes a yearly literary journal: Poetic Resonance Imaging (PRI).

We nurture an atmosphere of honesty, respect and transparency for all employees. Individualized compensation options provide the flexibility AND security our nurses expect and need. We offer a wide variety of flexible scheduling: full–time, part-time, per-diem, contingent and weekend cadre with or without benefits. After six months of employment, we offer tuition reimbursement on a pro-rated basis. Nursing Perks Include:

  • Flexible Scheduling
  • Hospital PRN Registry
  • Weekend Differential
  • Afternoon Shift Differential
  • Midnight Shift Differential
  • Preceptor Pay
  • Charge Pay
  • Employee Referral Program
