You became a nurse to make a difference — by touching the lives of your patients. Ascension’s mission to provide compassionate, personalized care for all - is delivered to 151 hospitals and over 2,600 sites of care in 21 states.
We invite you to be part of Ascension's national network where life-changing work is much closer than you think.
We know our associates have an array of interests and priorities beyond their work. That's why we support work-life balance on an every day basis. We also provide generous paid time off; and recognize 8 holidays, which is two more holidays than the typical organization.
We offer our associates assistance with tuition reimbursement, continuing education, and professional development opportunities. Ascension also provides various in-depth leadership development programs to meet our associates where they are on their career journey.
Ascension is one of the leading non-profit health systems in the United States. In 2018, we provided nearly $2 billion in healthcare to those in need and without access. If you’re passionate about serving your community, Ascension is a great place to do just that.
For us, work is more than a place we go each day. It's an environment that nurtures relationships, cultivates talent and supports our associates. Ascension's commitment to holistic care - body, mind and spirit - encompasses our associates.
Expect to be part of a team.
Our collaborative work environment means you’ll have a chance to learn from other experienced nurses across disciplines and share your own ideas so that everyone can give better care.
Expect to choose.
Our nationwide network means you can expect to find your place, whether you want to work in a smaller, 22-bed, acute care hospital or a larger, 770-bed, level 1 trauma hospital.
Expect to be heard.
No one knows nursing better than you. We’ll take your ideas seriously and put you at the heart of our healthcare innovation, leading to better outcomes for you — and your patients.
