See your career take off as a flight nurse

Sara Walsh Chief critical care flight nurse with Gama Aviation

If providing emergency care in a confined space at 28,000 feet sounds like an exciting challenge, this could be the role for you

Flight nurses work in the aeromedical environment, transporting patients to medical facilities via helicopter or fixed-wing plane. We are responsible for the safe transfer of our patients – either from the roadside or another medical facility – and are trained to perform emergency medical care in confined spaces.
