Work Here Wednesday: Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit RNs

Hiring RNs to care for patients with acute cardiovascular diagnoses

We’re searching for RNs who can balance a family-centered team approach to providing care with their high technical skill set. We routinely utilize extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) and ventricular assist devices (VAD). Our complex patients may require hemodynamic monitoring, critical medication management, maintenance of systemic perfusion and/or management of organ failure.


  • Graduate of an accredited school of nursing.
  • Minnesota RN licensure.
  • BLS certification.
  • Recent experience in a Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
  • Ability to care for pre- and post-operative cardiac surgical patients, and pre- and post-cardiac procedural patients.

Does this sound like the perfect role for you? Apply to one of our two cardiovascular ICU RN positions today. Both positions are located at the Children’s Minnesota hospital in Minneapolis.
