Do you know that the Commonwealth employs nurses in multiple environments?

Whether you are providing care for individuals at our facilities, distributing medication to inmates, inspecting nursing facilities and medical records, or performing one of the multitude of other tasks performed by our nurses, you are giving back to the citizens of Pennsylvania who need your help the most. At the same time, because our jobs allow a healthy work/life balance, you will have time to pursue your other interests and return to work ready to face the new day's challenges. In addition, because our operations are so diverse, you can grow your career in a variety of nursing settings without changing employers.

Commonwealth opportunities provide ample room for career growth and advancement. Many entry-level positions are stepping stones to fulfilling and rewarding careers. For example, you can start your journey as a Licensed Practical Nurse, Registered Nurse, Health Facility Quality Examiner, Community Health Nurse, and move to titles such as Registered Nurse Supervisor, Registered Nurse Instructor, Nurse Manager, and other higher-level opportunities. Each step along this path comes with additional responsibilities as well as an increase in compensation. There are many paths like this available within the Commonwealth; you only need to find the one that is right for you.

We have a great need for the services of qualified, caring nurses at our facilities throughout Pennsylvania. We also have a need for individuals who are proficient in Spanish. Similar opportunities may exist in local government agencies.
