Amplify your voice
Ascension offers an inclusive and collaborative environment for every associate - especially you. Nursing associates account for over one-third of our total associate population - that’s more than 50,000 nurses strong! That means you will be part of a collective, united by one goal; to provide compassionate, personalized care to all - especially to those most in need. We invite you to explore a nursing career where your voice is heard and is represented in strategic and clinical decision making.
Reimagine how you work
Changes that affect front-line jobs work best when they start with front-line input. That’s why we are working relentlessly to position nurses to define the problems and pilot solutions that not only help support their day-to-day work lives, but support their ability to flourish personally and professionally as well. From new caregiver models that allow for collaboration across multiple specialties, to a smartphone app that allows nurses to quickly access the information they need, Ascension is committed to the nursing experience - one that promotes collaboration, efficiency and continuous improvement. We invite you to join a team focused on truly leading through innovation - a place where solutions are designed for our nurses, by our nurses.
Experience joy in your career
When it comes to nursing, no one knows your job better than you. That is why Ascension is focused on the change that truly moves us forward. This means removing barriers that get in the way of you finding and experiencing joy in your career here. From developing myCareer, an initiative designed to encourage associate growth and development, to providing additional resources that help you proactively manage your emotional and physical well-being to avoid burnout before it happens, Ascension is committed to caring for you. Create a career path you love, with Ascension.

Meet our team
"I really enjoy the teaching aspect of my hospital, it's great to continually be in an environment where learning is encouraged. I had previously worked at a level III trauma center and I knew I wanted to take the step up to level I. In surgery every day brings new challenges, and things are constantly changing which to me, keeps the job very fulfilling."
AJ, BSN, RN, Nurse Supervisor, Ascension Texas
"There is a strong sense that we are truely here for our patients and families and we strive to provide the best care for them. Our team goes above and beyond, behind the scenes to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible for the patients and their families."
Anna, RN, CPN, BSN, Pediatric Registered Nurse, Ascension Indiana
"It’s important for me to work at a place where I wouldn’t mind one day being a patient. You never know, what the future holds, and I wouldn’t mind being taken care of by the people I work with. The culture keeps me here, it's family based – but with all your coworkers and staff."
