Critical Care Nursing

For Current and
New Employees


At the Forefront of Pediatric Intensive Care

Our critical care staff is at the forefront of pediatric intensive care. We make sure there’s an open line of communications between hospital employees and families at every level. And it’s especially true with our Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) nursing staff.

In order to provide the very best care, you must have the flexibility to thrive in the unique challenges provided by critical care, while maintaining compassion by understanding the exceptional power of the human touch. In the true spirit of interdisciplinary practice, you'll work side-by-side with top pediatric physicians and surgeons and an incredibly supportive staff. To support your professional development, following an innovative orientation program, you will have many opportunities to grow in your position through advanced educational initiatives.

In addition, the PICU provides attractive scheduling options, supportive work teams and an individualized orientation program of up to 12 weeks. What's more, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia provides you with benefits that go beyond the workplace. You'll discover an incredible array of enrichment and educational opportunities.
