At National Jewish Health we recognize the value of our nurses' contribution to our healthcare environment and their promotion of an atmosphere of clinical excellence. We build systems that support nursing practice and teamwork and create an atmosphere that encourages nursing excellence.

As one of the foremost treatment and research facilities in the heart of Denver, CO, we offer unique nursing opportunities in the following areas:

  • Adult Care Unit - Specializing in the care of adult patients with respiratory and infectious diseases
  • Pediatric Care Unit - Specializing in the care of pediatric patients with pulmonary and immunological disorders
  • Adult Clinic - Team nursing focusing on single day patient appointments
  • Pediatric Clinic - Team nursing managing pediatric single day appointments

Here's what some of our nurses have to say...

  • "I enjoy the many opportunities to educate patients and families. It's great to see that patients have more control over their disease simply by knowing more."
  • "I continue to be impressed by the dedication and expertise of the nurses I work with. The nurses give 110% to the patients and families for whom they care."
  • "Every day I work becomes a learning experience in some way - patients provide me with a wide, varied range of diagnoses which always challenge me and continue to teach me."
  • "I enjoy working in a specialized area in which I can frequently use my skills of assessment and nursing care in both acute and non-acute care."
  • "I work in an environment where everyone is constantly challenging themselves to the do best they can, and always is looking to improve upon the status quo."
