Practice nursing with a high level of autonomy.

You've worked hard to cultivate the skills, experience, and judgment needed to succeed in the critical care environment. So why work somewhere that doesn't afford you the autonomy you've earned? San Antonio Regional Hospital critical care registered nurses provide care to patients age 14 and older in our 12-bed Intensive Care Unit (ICU), 12-bed Coronary Care Unit (CCU), and 12-bed Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU). Our units offer you the ability to work in-depth across many disciplines, including cardiovascular, neurological, and trauma.

Plus, you'll have the autonomy you need to excel as you:

  • Assess patient needs
  • Develop a plan of care
  • Monitor patient progress
  • Represent nursing on Code Blue and Rapid Response Teams

Take advantage of support when you need it.

At the same time, autonomy doesn't equal self-sufficiency. When you do need support, whether it's from the team or through technology, you can count on San Antonio.

Our critical care nurses work with a Director, Manager, Educator, and an interdisciplinary team that includes:

  • Bioethicists
  • Clergy
  • Dieticians
  • Laboratory Technicians
  • Physicians of various specialties
  • Physical Therapists
  • Radiology Technologists
  • Respiratory Therapists
  • Social Workers
  • Speech Therapists
It's all part of the San Antonio culture, which emphasizes communication and collaboration. Plus, we are known for our cutting-edge technology and advanced treatments – the da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System, robotic laboratory, and bar coding for medications.

More specifically, our critical care nurses benefit from the following:

  • The latest equipment for monitoring critically-ill patients
  • STEMI Receiving Center designation
  • Stroke Center designation
  • Advanced treatment for Therapeutic Hypothermia patients
  • Thriving Cardiothoracic Surgery Program
  • Computerized documentation program (Cerner)
  • Charge pay

Rounding out our dynamic environment are manageable workloads, a hands-on management team, self-scheduling, holiday schedules, and a critical care nurse educator. Why take your talents anywhere other than San Antonio?
