How does TGH attract and source potential candidates for open positions?
TGH has a dedicated team of talent acquisition consultants who regularly host in-person and virtual hiring events and community job fairs. We have also partnered with many local schools and programs. Additionally, we encourage anyone who is interested in joining our team to explore our currently open positions at www.tgh.org/careers
TGH offers a wide variety of career opportunities in all aspects of patient care ranging from clinical openings and research to operations and administration. We are passionate about matching top talent with key roles in our organization, and we strive to help each qualified candidate find the perfect career with us.
Are there specific qualifications or experience requirements for different roles at TGH?
Yes. Some positions require specific skills, experience, education, licensure and/or certification, while others are entry-level opportunities that require minimal work experience. The precise qualifications for each position can be found in the respective job posting at www.tgh.org/careers. Candidates for certain roles may be asked to complete a technical assessment if applicable.
Does TGH have any partially or fully remote positions?
Yes. Many of our team members support our patients without treating them in person. For instance, essential functions such as patient intake, medical records management, claims administration, community relations, and certain corporate positions can be performed remotely. If a position can be partially or fully remote, that information is noted in the respective job posting at www.tgh.org/careers.
At TGH, we believe there are many benefits to working from home, which is strongly linked to job satisfaction and general happiness. Remote work provides our team members with more independence and flexibility, which can lead to a better work-life balance. It can also eliminate the time, stress and expense of a daily commute and improve both physical and mental health. Finally, when geography is eliminated from the equation, TGH gains access to a broader pool of talent and can hire the best candidate for each job.
Does TGH have short-term internal contracts for registered nurses (RNs)?
Yes. We offer 12-week contract RN positions with a 36-hour per week schedule, a flat hourly rate, shift differentials and eligibility for benefits, such as health insurance and a 403(b) retirement savings plan. As new opportunities arise and seasonal contracts become available, we will post the openings at www.tgh.org/careers.
Also known as travel or per diem nursing, contract nursing offers several key advantages for RN's, including:
- Flexibility - Contract RNs can choose when and where they want to work. This flexibility can be ideal for a nurse who prefers a varied work schedule, wants to explore different healthcare settings or needs temporary employment.
- Varied experience - Contract RNs are exposed to diverse clinical settings, patient populations and healthcare facilities, which can broaden their skills and enhance their resume.
- Professional development - Contract RNs have opportunities to work with different teams and healthcare professionals. By establishing professional connections and cultivating mutually beneficial relationships, they can exchange valuable advice, information, referrals and support.
- Enhanced well-being - By providing breaks between assignments, contract nursing can help prevent career fatigue and burnout among nurses.
Does TGH have float positions for registered nurses (RNs)?
Yes. We have multiple full-time, part-time and pool/PRN opportunities in all nursing specialties, each with a different work commitment and flat hourly rate. These opportunities can be found at www.tgh.org/careers.
In addition to supporting our various nursing units, our float-pool nurses serve as valued collaborators who share insights across teams and help to advance the practice of nursing at the unit, divisional and organizational levels. They are also trusted advocates who champion the rights of patients while delivering compassionate care.
What if I do not live within driving distance of the hospital and cannot travel for an interview?
TGH conducts interviews in several formats, including virtually and over the telephone. If an offer is made, relocation assistance may be available for candidates in certain locations who are offered certain positions.
