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 Neonatal Intensive Care (NICU) and Pediatric Intensive Care (PICU) RN candidates to explore new career-defining opportunities with us.

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.

Neonatology: Critical Care for Infants (NICU)

At our 51-bed unit, we:

  • Diagnose and treat premature and sick newborns.
  • Stabilize newborns with life-threatening conditions.
  • Treat infections and breathing problems.
  • Coordinate infant care with surgical or other complex needs.
  • UVA's comprehensive Fetal Heart Program means mothers with at-risk babies can deliver in the same hospital where their little ones will receive care.
  • Our years of experience and ongoing training prepare us to be there for you and your child.

Pediatric Critical Care (PICU)

Our Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) cares for infants, kids and teenagers with serious illnesses and injuries or who have had complex surgery, including heart procedures and organ transplants.

Our 17-bed PICU admits about 1,000 children each year. We're one of the Southeast's top referral centers for pediatric trauma, cardiac and critical care. We also work closely with our Emergency Department, one of six level 1 trauma centers in Virginia.

We treat patients with a wide range of serious medical problems, including:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Kidney failure
  • Poisoning
  • Breathing or lung problems

Here, you will be part of a community of medical practitioners, faculty, students and other team members who learn and even live together to exercise ingenuity, develop self-governance tools and push the boundaries of knowledge in service to the common good.

If you're ready to be part of something greater, this is your moment.
