The World’s Most Dedicated Never Give Up
Think of what you could achieve if the best possible care was all that mattered. If you had the encouragement and opportunity to truly bond with the patients in your care. And if you could collaborate with the world’s brightest scientists, in a bench-to-bedside environment that put you on the leading edge of clinical breakthroughs for children with cancer, sickle cell, and other life-threatening diseases. It’s possible at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. As a clinical professional with us, you’ll be part of a team that gives our all to make a difference in the lives of patients with the rarest of conditions. All while receiving the resources and support you need to advance your career and be the force behind the cures.
As a Pediatric Acute Care Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant in our ICU, you’ll have the opportunity to work with our most critical patients, joining a tight-knit, established team of APPs, nurses, and physicians serving at the forefront of care for our 8-bed unit. Because of the unique nature of the work we do at St. Jude, your work in our ICU will be intense and variable, but it will be some of the most rewarding work of your career. Advanced Practice Providers in this role cover the hospital around the clock daily, so this role rotates between days and nights, including weekends and holidays.
Here at St. Jude, we provide the very best in patient care, and we encourage applicants whose aspirations match the caliber of our work. If you’re quick on your feet, calm under pressure, and believe in mission-driven work at the forefront of cancer-care, we’d love to have you apply.
