We are always interested in meeting experienced nurses, particularly those with pediatric and/or adult acute care experience, for a variety of nursing positions. Here are some of our featured opportunities:
Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU)
PICU nurses care for patients and their families during their most difficult times. PICU nurses work in collaboration with the PICU physicians to provide optimal critical care to our high acuity patients. Our PICU is the ideal place for experienced nurses to build critical care skills and learn skills through a comprehensive orientation program with the support of nursing leadership in a team-focused environment.
After a comprehensive, individualized orientation, PICU nurses enjoy a flexible work schedule – weekend only, day/night rotation and nights-only schedules are available. Contact us using the form below if you are interested in exploring PICU opportunities!
