As an Advanced Practice Provider at Children’s, you’ll be an integral part of a dynamic organization experiencing growth — in both programs and facilities. Our providers are an important touchpoint with our regional, national and global patients and families.
Join a team dedicated to a singular mission: “To improve the life of every child — through dedication to exceptional clinical care, research, education and advocacy.”
“I am truly blessed to work as a nurse practitioner at Children’s Hospital and Medical Center. I started my career at Children’s 19 years ago as a newly graduated bedside nurse in the medical surgical unit. I was able to gain so much pediatric nursing and medical knowledge. When I started nurse practitioner classes, Children’s supported me — financially and emotionally. When I became a nurse practitioner, Children’s helped me find a position that was the right fit for me and the hospital. Later in my career, Children’s again supported me as I achieved certification as a pediatric acute care nurse practitioner. My favorite part of my career at Children’s is the children and families I have been privileged to care for. I am so very thankful for the opportunities Children’s has provided for me.”

Employee development and career advancement is a fundamental aspect of our growth. Children’s Hospital and Medical Center maintains a variety of programs that are designed to enhance the specialized abilities and skills of individual employees, foster next-generation leaders and encourage personal growth through continual learning.
One highlight of the exciting opportunities here at Children’s is the Cardiac Care Unit (CCU).
CCUAt Children’s Hospital & Medical Center, we are committed to growth and expansion that will allow us to not only continue to offer exceptional cardiac care, but also to increase our ability to offer that care to our patients in innovative ways.
The Theodore F. Hubbard, M.D., Cardiac Care Unit (CCU) which will be located in the Hubbard Center for Children (set to open in 2021), is a key part of that commitment.
Our ongoing dedication to quality, innovative care for our patients has led to Children’s being ranked 15th nationally in Pediatric Cardiology & Heart Surgery by U.S. News & World Report as well as being a three-time magnet designated facility.
How Will The CCU Be Different From Children’s Current Model Of Cardiac Care?
The CCU will provide inpatient care for patients from 34 weeks gestation to 21 years of age with congenital or acquired heart disease. It will be a space that is solely dedicated to all levels of inpatient cardiac care, from admission through discharge. The 32-bed unit will follow an adaptable acuity care model, with all rooms capable of functioning as an intensive care unit or step-down unit.
The CCU will be staffed by critical care physicians, advanced practice providers, and nurses 24 hours a day. The patient population will include cardiology and cardiothoracic surgical patients; pre- and post-surgical repair and/or heart catheterization patients; medical patients with heart failure, transplant, shock, or pulmonary hypertension; and patients needing ECMO support.
Where Can I Apply To Work In The CCU?
While the Hubbard Center for Children is still under construction, we are actively seeking CCU nursing staff members.
