ER nursesWhen you see an average of 200 patients every day, treating cardiac arrest, brain attack and a variety of traumas are all in a day's work.

As an Emergency Department nurse at The George Washington University Hospital, you won't just see a lot. You'll see it all. And if you're ready to do whatever it takes to treat whatever comes your way, we've got a great opportunity for you.

In 2012, we anticipate that more than 76,000 patients will come through the doors of our ED and require some kind of immediate attention. These will include area residents and visitors to the nation's capital; heads of state and heads of households. They will all be treated by innovative and independent critical thinkers who excel individually—and collectively—to care for our diverse patient population.

We are a Level One trauma center and among a handful of hospitals in the DC area to be growing in terms of patients treated and services provided. We have six critical care treatment areas, two trauma bays and 37 treatment areas that will soon expand to 45 areas.
