As an MICU RN, you will be part of an interdisciplinary team that is committed to best practice and continually looking to evidence based research to treat critical illness and prevent complications within our patient population. The MICU is a 21-bed medical/cardiac intensive care unit where nurses are active in quality initiatives and research projects. Our patients are complicated and often have multi-system organ impairment, which requires astute assessment and clinical reasoning skills. We work as a team: environmental services, LNAs, RNs, unit clerks, RT, PT/OT, interns, residents, fellows, attendings, as we all strive for excellence in patient care.

MICU nurses love to learn and love to teach. This is an active learning environment that requires accountability and responsibility for outcomes. Many of our nurses are Certified Critical Care Nurses (CCRNs) or actively working to become a CCRN. Our nurses also have the opportunity to advance through the Clinical Advancement and Recognition Program (CARP).
