Duke Health Nursing Opportunities for a Lifetime

Duke Health nurses are dedicated to transforming patient care and raising the standards of nursing excellence. Every day, Duke nurses go above and beyond the call of duty to deliver extraordinary care to patients at our three Duke health hospitals and our extensive, geographically dispersed network of outpatient facilities that include primary care offices, urgent care centers, multi-specialty clinics, and outpatient surgery centers. Whether it’s implementing nurse-led initiatives to improve patient outcomes or collaborating with different members of the health care team to exceed patients’ needs, excellence and innovation are ingrained across all Duke Health nursing areas. 

Duke Health is consistently recognized as a top employer for our dedication to our team and the patients we serve. In 2022, Duke Health was named a Best Large Employer by Forbes and the #1 healthcare recipient in NC. Our hospitals are consistently recognized as LGBTQ Healthcare Equality Leaders by Healthcare Equality Index. And we’ve been a recipient of the CHIME Digital Health Most Wired honor since 2018, which recognizes our ability to elevate the health and care of communities.
