There are many kinds of nurses. But the nurses of UAB will tell you it takes a special kind to be a UAB nurse. There is a unique quality in being a UAB nurse. Part of it is camaraderie. Part of it is the nature of working at a large academic medical center – the acuity of the patient population and the way you are viewed as a respected member of the care team. Either way – it is different.
As part of a 1,000 plus bed, nationally-ranked academic medical center, UAB nurses are leading the way in helping treat our nation’s sickest patients and babies and are participating in the latest evidence-based practices and revolutionary clinical trials. UAB Hospital’s third redesignation as a Magnet facility proves that we stand behind our nurses, supporting and encouraging them to continue to develop their skills and further our nursing practice. From programs designed to help new grads acclimate to our culture to those specific to helping experienced nurses hone their skills, UAB offers a number of opportunities for continuing education and career development.
You can find a job anywhere. But if you’re looking for a place where you can truly change people’s lives – you’ll find that at UAB Medicine.
