About Nursing at Van Nuys Behavioral Health Hospital

If you are looking for a nursing career at a community hospital with opportunities for advancement, consider Southern California Hospitals, which includes acute care locations in Culver City and Hollywood and a behavioral health hospital in Van Nuys. Our network of hospitals, as part of Prospect Medical, includes 20 hospitals in five states, with seven of these hospitals located here in LA and Orange County. This provides our nurses with job, location and career flexibility.

Nurses choose to work at Southern California Hospitals for a variety of reasons, but they stay for the culture of teamwork emphasized at our hospitals. Our nurses have the opportunity to collaborate with all disciplines of the healthcare team to enhance professional communication and patient care skills in a multicultural environment.

Because our nurses are integral to our patient care, we have instilled a culture of safety. In fact, Southern California Hospitals at Culver City and Hollywood received the 2019 Patient Safety Excellence Award from Healthgrades, putting the hospital in the top 5% in the nation among acute care hospitals for patient safety for the second year in a row. Both hospitals are also nationally recognized by Healthgrades for Treatment of COPD, Heart Attack and Heart Failure, as well as Pacemaker Procdures and Esophageal/Stomach Surgeries

Our nurses are encouraged to advance their careers by training in new specialties and going from low- to high-acuity patient care units, through our Grow Your Own program. This also includes opportunities to move into leadership roles.

Some of our seven California hospitals are located in medically underserved communities. If you have a passion for working with underserved populations, have strong coping skills, want the opportunity to lift others up, and are willing to make deep connections with people from all walks of life—we also have opportunities for you!

If you are caring and compassionate and are interested in joining our team of dedicated, professional nurses, we’d love to welcome you to Southern California Hospitals where our goal is to provide quality, compassionate, accessible care to everyone.
