Our 28 room pediatric Emergency Department (ED), with two resuscitation areas and a five room minor care area, cares for approximately 47,000 children per year, in a service area that covers southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina. We are seeking motivated team members to provide excellent care and service to our pediatric patients. We use a team-nursing model approach to patient care, which starts with an expert Triage Nurse and uses a RN as Team Leader, as well as Emergency Department Techs. Experienced ED RN’s and/or expert pediatric nurses, and full time and part time EMT-I or EMT-P’s are needed to help provide this holistic care to the patients and their families.

Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters is located in the heart of Hampton Roads which includes the resort area of Virginia Beach and Colonial Williamsburg. The region, bordered by the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay, has a mild climate and outstanding recreational and cultural opportunities, and is only a short drive to from the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains to the West.
