Asante is following the Oregon governor’s administrative order requiring health care workers to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Vaccination is the safest, most effective and most reliable way to keep you, your family and your community healthy and safe from COVID-19.
"Fully vaccinated” means you received both doses of the two-dose COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna) or the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine and at least 14 days have passed since you got the final dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
Asante has taken precautions to keep everyone as safe as possible during the pandemic.
These include providing appropriate personal protective equipment for all patients and staff; requiring everyone to sanitize their hands frequently, including before and after entry; screening employees for illness before they begin work; limiting visitors; maintaining thorough cleaning practices within our facilities, while increasing cleaning frequency; and screening patients for symptoms of COVID-19 before their visit to ensure they receive appropriate care in the safest possible setting. Our employees are also eligible to get vaccinated at no cost to them through Asante.
We are operating in a work-from-home model to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community. While social distancing measures will prohibit some in-person recruiting activities, our team continues to innovate with alternatives to meet the staffing needs of our hospitals and community.
Our recruiting process has shifted to using more virtual interactions as a substitute for in-person meetings. For example, most job interviews will now occur in the form of a phone call or an online meeting. For the safety of new hires, our social distancing policies extend to the onboarding process, too. New employees now receive virtual orientation instead of class-based learning.
When you submit a job application, you may choose to agree or not agree to have certain screenings if you receive a job offer. These include a background check, drug tests and a physical exam. View our hiring policies.

Asante is still actively hiring health care professionals for all levels during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, to help keep everyone safe and healthy, we have created a virtual interview process. Here are some tips and tricks on how to prepare for our two-way virtual interview process.
Our recruiters may ask you to complete two virtual interviews (a one-way virtual interview and two-way virtual interview) depending on the type of role and screening status of the position you are being considered for. For many of our positions, we may invite you to complete a one-way virtual interview – which helps us to know you better. This is one of our first steps in our screening process and, if invited, you will receive instructions along with tips on how to complete our one-way video interview.
If you are invited to an interview with the hiring leaders and/or staff, we are currently using a virtual method that has replaced many of our in-person interviews. Here are some common tips and tricks to help prepare you for a successful two-way interview:
Although technology can be unreliable, it is always best to try and prepare your equipment to prevent any awkward face freezes or audio mishaps! To do this, our virtual partners, Hirevue, has resources available to test your equipment prior to your interview along with instructions upon invite. If the video interview is unsuccessful, the hiring leader will call you to complete the interview over the phone – so have your phone muted and nearby.
Make sure the time you agree to is one that will allow you to be alone with no background distractions (silent your phone!), light reflections, noise or disruptions. Remember, this is your first meeting with the hiring leader - and although you aren’t in their office, you’ll want to create an environment that closely resembles one as if you were in person – clear, quiet and focused.
Try to match how you would present yourself in an in-person interview by dressing in business casual wear. Although we live in a virtual world, you can project your professionalism through a video interview.
Remember how you present yourself to the hiring leader and/or committee will be used to evaluate you as the best candidate for the position. Be sure to doublecheck your email and any usernames to ensure they are professional.
Virtual body language has replaced the old handshake! However, many of our body languages remain the same. To exude confidence in your virtual interview, sit up straight, speak clearly and remember to smile! Although difficult at times, try and focus on the web cam to speak directly to the hiring leader.
As with any interview setting, virtual or in-person, show up with questions you may have about the position and prep how you will answer common interview questions such as; why are you interested in this role?
Talk to the recruiter about the department or location you’re interested in. Your recruiter will give you a timeline of when to expect information by phone or email about next steps after the phone interview.
To do well:
Give yourself the best chance for consideration by making your resume well-organized and tailoring it to the position you’re applying to. When you create your resume:
Download Oregon’s Nurse Staffing Law Anti-Retaliation Notice (PDF). This protects nursing staff from retaliation if they disclose a hospital activity, policy or practice in violation of a law or professional standards of practice that may pose a risk to the health, safety or welfare of a patient or the public.
