Return to how you envisioned nursing.

What are your options when nursing has always been a calling but the industry itself has changed dramatically? Maybe it’s time to consider a hospital with a supportive internal culture in a community where the quality of life makes everything a little easier.


Physicians shape the standards of care to improve the patient experience and create a culture of knowledge, respect and engagement. We listen, we understand, and you’ll find the support you need.


We do more than treat a condition; we help patients through compassion and empathy to improve their hospital experiences.

Modern Capabilities

The people we care for are friends, family and neighbors. As such, we’re dedicated to bringing our community modern facilities with the newest technology and practices for improved diagnostics, surgeries, treatments and outcomes.

Look inside patient-centered healthcare.

We’re dedicated to bringing our community modern facilities with the newest technology and practices for improved diagnostics, surgeries, treatments and outcomes.

Welcome home.

“Micropolitan.” It’s a term that nicely sums up our combination of amenities and activities without the hassles of a larger metro area.


Hungry for Greek, Italian, Indian, Chinese, BBQ or Mexican food? Great, because we have them all. Craft breweries, steakhouses, sports bars, coffee shops and bakeries will also satisfy your cravings.


Kearney has 20 miles of trails in town. Our 18 parks offer lakes, sand volleyball, picnicking and paddleboarding. You can even kayak a 2.3-mile water trail. For fishing or hunting, the Platte River valley has plenty of opportunities.


Our downtown area (affectionately called “The Bricks”) has unique boutique stores while the Hilltop Mall offers national brands.


How about a Tier 1 Elite Hockey League game? Or a trip to the farmer’s market? Maybe catch a classic movie at The World Theatre. And let’s not forget Oktoberfest, the Downtown Christmas Walk, concerts and University of Nebraska at Kearney sporting events. You can quickly fill your social calendar.


In 2016, the new Kearney High School opened its doors. At 350,000 square feet, it’s a stunning example of how our city comes together to create a thriving community. U.S. News & World Report also ranked the University of Nebraska at Kearney #6 in Best Midwest Public Universities.

Tell me more about being physician guided?

At Kearney Regional Medical Center, the doctors who see you also guide the direction of the hospital, based on what they need to provide better care. This means spending more time with patients, working to a standard of excellence instead of outside policies, and utilizing the latest in cutting-edge technology. In a sense, what you need for better care goes right to the top, because the “top” is the person who’s treating you.

Does a “personalized sign-on bonus” mean that KRMC is not offering five-figure bonuses?

In addition to a familiar cash bonus, KRMC has crafted other compensation features into the sign-on bonus process, including things like PTO, housing allowances, education assistance and more! Use the sliders on this page to help us begin building your personalized compensation package.

What can I expect in the interview process?

The interview process is meant to provide an opportunity for the candidate and KRMC to figure out the best fit. After you apply, the manager will review your application and resume. Following this, you will be contacted to set up an interview if you meet the requirements. The interview will be scheduled based on comparing the managers schedule with the candidates. It will be scheduled for one hour, in which you will have the opportunity to interview with the manager of the department and another member from the department.

Do you offer financial assistance?

KRMC offers two programs for our staff to utilize, including financial assistance for school already completed or financial assistance for a future degree in your field.

Does Kearney have an airport?

Absolutely. Kearney Regional Airport makes it easy to hop to a larger destination.
