Advanced Practice Providers

Nurses conferring in hallway

UI Health Care employs more than 500 advanced practice providers (APPs) in essentially every clinical department.

We offer competitive salaries, comprehensive benefits, and rewarding positions for physician assistants and advanced registered nurse practitioners including certified nurse practitioners, certified registered nurse anesthetists, certified nurse midwives, and certified clinical nurse specialists.

Our difference

UI Healthcare is Iowa’s only comprehensive academic medical center. Our care providers are also researchers and teachers, committing their expertise to treating today’s patients as well as discovering tomorrow’s breakthroughs and training future care providers.

You will practice in Iowa’s first hospital to receive Magnet designation and the only one to be re-designated four times. We are among a select group of top hospitals in the world to receive this recognition for our nurses, who are committed to maintaining the highest standards of care.

Our career opportunities and living options provide an optimum work-life combination. Start with the area’s most complete benefits package for insurance, retirement, sick leave, and vacation. Add a vibrant community where education, entertainment, and recreation opportunities abound. Then combine the ingredients for professional development and advancement, including extensive research and advanced study opportunities.

A Place to Demonstrate Your Leadership

Our APPs have opportunities to provide leadership in a variety of care settings, helping to set the clinical practice guidelines and evidenced based practices for providing high-quality, cost-effective care. APPs serve on many hospital-wide committees and have an active voice through the APP Council and a shared governance advisory board. They are actively engaged in multiple quality initiatives.
