Nursing & Clinical Roles

Grow your career on your own terms. Aurora will provide the support, tools and resources to develop professionally, in whatever setting is best for you. Your voice as a caregiver will be heard clearly whether you're at one of our large hospitals or at a smaller facility. Through positivity and friendly collaboration, we'll help you move forward and be inspired.

Quality of Care

Feel in-control and empowered, using your skills to provide patients with the very best care. We count on your expertise in caring for patients and their families - and in return, we'll ensure that you can count on us. We're here to guide you to long-term success. Because you're essential to them, and to us.


You are at the center of patient care at Aurora, with an interprofessional team of doctors, technicians, therapists, medical assistants and more at your side to drive the best patient outcomes. And when you need them most, you can rely on your team to support and empower you to be at your compassionate best.

Shared Governance

At Aurora, we maintain the belief that clinical decisions should be made by bedside nurses like you, which is why we established a governance process nearly 15 years ago, called Aurora Nursing Shared Governance (ANSG). Shared governance allows your voice and the voices of other caregivers like you to be heard in matters concerning clinical practice, policies and procedures. More than 7,500 nurses come together to receive and share information, tools, training and support, to not only help you grow in your profession, but to continually improve the quality of patient care.

Career Growth

Whether you want to receive training and support or grow into a leadership role, Aurora will ensure that you're armed with the resources you need to be at your best. Our nurse managers lead by example, while also encouraging teamwork, open dialogue and active listening. You'll have the tools you need to deliver quality patient care, with tailored self-scheduling options, including full-time, part-time and float, to give you the work life integration you need to be at your best on and off the floor.

From community involvement to research, shared governance, and more, you're set up to succeed with programs like the Aurora Nursing Professional Advancement Model and the Success Pays™ Program, an ANCC professional development program that allows registered nurses to obtain certification by exam or certification renewal. The program offers the opportunity and funding for RNs to achieve certification in 12 months.


Nursing Students

Gain knowledge and experience while earning your degree. Aurora will help with tuition and ATI testing as you work as a CNA or extern at any of our facilities, statewide.

Nurse Extern

Administer medications, IVs and admission assessments to supplement your education in an accredited nursing program. Scheduling is flexible, so you'll forge your own path forward while providing total patient care.

New Graduates

We view you as a professional, meaning you'll almost always begin your career in a hospital. You'll have your own practice and be involved in decision-making as we coach and mentor you. Throughout, you'll have individualized plans to become the nurse you want to be.

Nurse Residency Program

The one-year Aurora Health Care Nurse Residency Program is here to help you grow professionally with guidance from supportive cohorts, training opportunities and monthly interactive learning sessions focused on patient outcomes, leadership and other professional roles.
