Legacy Health has a growth opportunity to join a well-established team of energetic NNP’s.  The NNP role has opportunities at both Level III and IV NICU units within Legacy.  Both units offer delivery attendance, medical management of high-risk neonates and infants, including rounding on NNP service patients.  Telemedicine Resuscitation coverage of other Legacy level I nursery sites and the opportunity to work on nonclinical projects vital to the high standard of care for the NICU patients and families is also a vital part of the NNP role. 


The Level IV 45 bed unit is within Randall Children’s Hospital, a free-standing 9 story children’s hospital, and offers comprehensive care with all subspecialties, including cardiac and neurology surgery specialties, genetics and ECMO, within the framework of family integrated care.  Randall Children’s Hospital has a dedicated children’s transport team.  No transport requirement for the NNP role. 


The Level III 22 bed unit at Legacy Salmon Creek Medical center is eagerly awaiting the addition of NNP’s to the care team.   The schedule is emerging and includes 12, 16 and 24-hour shift options. 


The role requires NNP to be based in the Portland/Vancouver area and requires dual licensure in Oregon and Washington. Rotation frequency through both units is negotiable and individualized to maintain 24-hour coverage at both sites, including nights, holidays, and weekends.  Holiday tracks and a well-established self-scheduling model bring increased satisfaction and balance to the team.


The Neonatal Nurse Practitioner role is part of the Legacy Medical Group of medical providers.  Candidates will enjoy a comprehensive benefit package that includes required license reimbursement and generous continuing education support annually.




Patient Care Management:  The NNP’s work collaboratively with Neonatologists and pediatric subspecialists in the NICU as well as pediatricians and obstetricians in the Labor and Delivery and Family Birthing centers to guide the care of neonates and infants across the care continuum.  The NNP’s are able to practice in an autonomous role utilizing technical procedural skills as well as essential decision making in the care of these patients. 


Nursing Care Support:  The NNP team provide ongoing support to the nursing staff whether on the unit or through formal education opportunities.  The NNP’s are key leaders in patient care projects that support both nursing care and medical management.


Resuscitation: The NNP’s attend deliveries in person at each of the medical centers and via a telehealth support platform at the other level I nursery sites to provide a consistent high level of care for newborns throughout the Legacy system.  


Discharge Planning: The entire NICU team works to provide an integrated family care experience to enable families to care for their high-risk infants within the NICU setting and beyond.  The NICU values input from all members of the team including dedicated neonatal RT’s, consultants from dietary, OT/PT, lactation, as well as the core nursing, medical and leadership staff.
