What it's like to work at NGHS
When you become part of the well-respected NICU and adult respiratory staff, you join a multi-faceted team of nurses, physical therapists, and speech therapists where your opinion on plan of care is requested and valued by our providers.  As an integral part of the care team, you will collaborate closely with providers and be a large part of daily rounding.  Staffed with mid-level providers 24/7 at both campuses and given a high level of autonomy, you will enjoy learning and growing in an environment where you are valued.

Our NICU and adult RTs are encouraged to grow skills and knowledge and use them at the bedside. We are not centered on just completing tasks but on using our specific respiratory skill set and knowledge base to care for the tiniest patient population up through the geriatric population. You will have the opportunity to become engaged and rewarded through our professional development program and shared governance.
