It is an incredibly exciting place to work and to grow; full of challenges as well as the opportunity to work with the best and the brightest. Our unit is an integral component of a leading trauma program.
As an interprofessional patient care team, our physicians are true partners in nursing practice.

This is an environment where learning can flourish and your competence and confidence as a nurse will soar to new heights. We strive for excellence in all things - our patients deserve it and our team expects it!
