Job Description & Requirements
Registered Nurse – Pediatric Intensive Care - PICU
As the pediatric hospital for Los Angeles, and a Level I Trauma Unit, our hospital is a referral center for young patients requiring highly complicated and life-saving procedures.
The 24-bed Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) is the largest such unit on the West Coast. Nearly 1,400 critically ill patients – too sick to be treated on general inpatient floors – are admitted each year for specialized medical and nursing services.
Within the PICU, children from multiple surgical specialties including neurosurgery, orthopedics and general pediatric surgery receive advanced level care. In addition, the PICU staff handle post-operative care for those patients who receive liver, intestinal organ, and kidney transplants.
