Searching for critical care and/or ICU nursing jobs? The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a nationwide shortage of RNs, LPNs and LVNs specializing in these important nursing specialties. As a result, we have immediate openings for critical care and ICU nurses in hospitals and health centers across the United States.
The majority of our current opportunities are standard hospital-based critical care and ICU nursing assignments, involving the care for patients on advanced life support and the skilled response to critical-care situations. Some are also part of our COVID-19 response effort; if you’re interested in working a job on the coronavirus front lines, please contact us here.
Even hospitals that have treated few or no COVID-19 patients — a pretty rare event these days — have been affected by the pandemic. Shortages of ICU beds and nurses in some areas can affect not just that region but neighboring communities, too. And if that facility is within a larger network, as many are, then the entire organization can quickly become stretched thin.
All of this has increased the need for skilled critical care and ICU nurses. And, thanks to our status as one of America’s most trusted nurse staffing companies, CareerStaff is one of the first partners that many employers turn to when they’re seeking to fill these important positions.
Because of our demonstrated ability to provide fast access to top-quality nursing professionals in every corner of the U.S., and our nationwide network of healthcare professionals, we’ve earned preferred status with many employers. As a result, we can also connect nurses with career opportunities they’re not likely to find elsewhere.
The upshot is that we’re actively looking to fill quick-start critical care and ICU nursing jobs from coast to coast. With assignments from California to New Hampshire, and from Florida to Washington State — and many points in between — we’ve got hundreds of opportunities for nurses seeking new employment opportunities to step in and help make a difference.
Why Work a Critical Care/ICU Nursing Job with CareerStaff?
And it’s that spirit of helping out that’s keeping so many of us going. It’s that spirit that has inspired so many amazing stories of compassionate care and selfless commitment. Take, for instance, the story of an ICU nurse from Hawaii (where only about half of ICU beds are full) who traveled first to New York and then to Texas to help treat COVID-19 patients.
“I felt like I needed to go,” she told Hawaii News Now. “I needed to help.”
For those nurses similarly inspired, we offer travel-based ICU nursing jobs, as well. These are assignments in other cities or states than where you’re currently based. They tend to last 13 weeks in length, and often include extension options. Travel ICU nursing jobs are available for both direct COVID-19 and standard assignments. Learn more about travel nursing here.
If you’re interested in a more permanent job, we also have full-time contract opportunities available for those with one or two years of experience in an ICU, progressive or critical care unit or comparable setting. Some assignments seek specific experience in cardiovascular ICU settings, as well. A license to practice and eligibility to work in the U.S. are also required.
We offer our nurses the benefits of a 24/7 answering service, flexible schedules and competitive compensation (with automatic deposit) and a great selection of benefits. Medical, dental and vision insurance is also included, and referral bonuses are available, too. We’re also proud to practice Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action (EEO/AA).
