Job Location


When Danny Thomas opened SJCRH in 1962, he had the vision that no child should die in the dawn of life, and from the very beginning, St. Jude nurses have led on the frontlines of helping find cures to childhood cancer and other catastrophic diseases.


St. Jude Nurses provide the highest quality of care, every day. We bring our hearts and minds to the bedside of every child that we care for. We wipe their tears, we hold their hands, and we smile relentlessly, to remind this terrible disease that it will never win. Because of the unique nature of our work at St. Jude, your work on our team will be dynamic and challenging, but it will be some of the most rewarding work of your career.


Here at St. Jude, we provide the very best in patient care, and we’re looking for nurses who not only believe in, but who embody this mission: those who know and are driven by their passions, who thrive through collaboration, and who actively seek out new opportunities to learn and lead. If you’re hungry, humble, and smart, and if you’re looking to invest in a team that wants to invest in you, we’d love to consider your application.
