Registered Nurse (RN) - Seasonal - ER - Days
Spend the winter months in beautiful, green and sunny southern Arizona. Yuma Regional Medical Center is located just 2.5 hours from Phoenix, 2.5 hours from San Diego, but has all of the amenities you could want and more right in town.

As the only acute care hospital with over 150 beds for 150 miles in any direction, the YRMC Emergency Department sees its fair share of trauma patients. While Yuma does not provide the inner-city experience, we do have two heli-pads to stabilize and ship patients to nearby Phoenix or San Diego hospitals, and they are typically utilized multiple times each week. Our recently remodeled ED hosts 72 patient beds. We have immediate access to the Cardiac Cath Lab for suspected heart patients. Annual patient visits for our ED exceeds 60,000 per year.
