Careers are defined by moments. Moments you decide to pursue excellence. Moments when you grow personally and professionally. And the moment when you take the next step in your career.

This is your moment to be part of something greater as part of the Critical Care team at one of the nation’s premier academic health systems.

UVA Health is rapidly expanding its facilities and services. To keep up with this growth, we welcome Critical Care RN candidates to explore new career-defining opportunities within our growing Critical Care department.

Here, you will be joining a team providing advanced full-spectrum care for acute and chronic illnesses ranging from MI and trauma to cardiothoracic surgery and organ transplants. Our nursing staff is empowered to excel in their careers and grow professionally with access to education, research, advanced training and mentorship opportunities throughout our academic system. As part of our collaborative team of critical care specialists, you will have a voice in patient care decisions and access to the latest clinical trials and medical technologies.

Our units include Medical Intensive Care (MICU), Surgical Trauma Intensive Care (STICU), Neonatal Intensive Care (NICU), Pediatric Intensive Care (PICU) and others.
