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 Virginia’s #1 hospital.*

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.
