Why be a CRNA at St Jude?


1. Our Mission: Finding Cures. Saving Children. It's at the heart of everything we do.

2. Maximize your license: Our administration is passionate about helping our APPs practice at the top of their license

3. Job satisfaction: We love what we do and where we do it!

4. Growth opportunities: When you grow, we grow. That's why we prioritize professional development opportunities for our CRNAs

5. Research: Our bench to bedside model means that research and implementation happen in real time

6. Caffeine: Two Starbucks on campus. Need we say more?

7. Relationships: Our CRNAs have the rare opportunity to build relationships with our patients and families

8. Family: Fewer than 20 CRNAs on staff makes us a tight-knit team

9. The Anti-Burnout: 80% of our anesthetics take place outside of the OR, and the other 20% keep your skills sharp. In addition, our rotating schedule gives you the fluidity you need to (really) maintain a work/life balance, and our CRNAs are only on call an average of four weeks a year. 

10. Pay and Benefits: Memphis' cost of living is 14% below the national average, making our already competitive pay and benefits even more appealing. Also, we have amazing barbeque.
