Our 32-bed, Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit provides the backdrop to the high-touch, high-tech, high-quality care our nurses pride themselves on delivering to sick babies from 23 weeks gestational age and up.

With only a door to separate us from the Labor and Delivery unit and operating rooms, our Advanced Response and Resuscitation Team is able to intervene quickly during complicated births. We value our active, collegial, and timely collaboration between physicians and front-line health care providers. As an academic medical center, our NICU team contributes to research and learning through participation in multi-center collaboratives, frequent drills with high-fidelity simulation equipment on the unit, and staff-led councils. Ours is a culture that encourages questions, applauds teamwork, and believes the family is the center of the plan for all the care we provide.

We are looking for candidates who are personally motivated, love challenges and believe in teamwork. We welcome applicants with experience in NICU.

We offer twelve-hour shifts and hire exclusively to the night shift in the NICU. Employees in the NICU become eligible to receive an additional critical care differential after the successful completion of the new graduate and/or new-to-the-NICU training program.
