Certification and Career Growth

CertificationWe support the efforts of our hard-working, professional nurses who earn certification through the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN). Many nurses on our staff have their PCCN (Progressive Care Nursing Certification) and CCRN (Critical Care Nursing Certification). We recognize the assurance these certifications provide to our patients and their families. By helping our Critical Care nurses meet rigorous national requirements, we all work together toward positive outcomes.

St. Joseph also adheres to the AACN’s Healthy Work Environment Standards, and we strive to continuously improve and provide a supportive work environment, using evidence-based, nurse-driven protocols to provide the highest quality care possible. We are moving to Electronic Medical Records (EMRs), and already provide Electronic Team Scheduling. Our Critical Care nurses typically work 12-hour shifts.

We understand how important potential career growth is to experienced Critical Care nurses. We provide advanced leadership opportunities, and offer many benefits to support you at work and at home, including a generous Tuition Reimbursement Program.

We offer a challenging career with many opportunities for training and advancement, along with the chance to be part of a collaborative team with a spiritual, family-centered work culture. If you are motivated by strong leaders and inspired by compassion, join us.
