Nurses

The Robley Rex VA Healthcare System is actively hiring registered nurses (RN) in all areas, with the greatest area of need being the Medical Procedures/Endoscopy Unit and the Critical Care Unit.

The Medical Procedures/Endoscopy Unit is a high-volume complex unit that requires RNs be available to provide nursing care in all phases of care in the Medical Procedures/Endoscopy Unit to include subject matter experts of Moderate Sedation. The Critical Care Unit is also a high-volume complex unit where RNs provide nursing care to patients with severe or life-threatening illnesses and injuries which require constant care, close supervision, and even life support.
