The Science and Art of Nursing

Rush is a great place to work and develop as a professional. Why? It's a prestigious health system that blends education, research and patient care, while serving the needs of an exciting, diverse city and the surrounding area. As nurses, we bring a diversity of background and expertise to achieve a shared purpose:

  • To treat patients as individuals with specific needs using skill, compassion and dignity
  • To maintain rigorous standards of care
  • To build our knowledge through ongoing education

Rush nurses are passionate about their work, and their reach extends beyond the hospital to community initiatives and volunteer activities. Our ambitious, focused nursing community is devoted to providing care that’s relevant and responsive to the needs of our patients, community and organization. We truly care, and we make a difference in the lives of everyone we touch.
