Registered nurses who are interested in becoming part of the LifeFlight flight crew must initially meet all position requirements in our job postings. Once hired, nurses undergo a rigorous training program with our LifeFlight operations team to prepare them for the critical care flight environment. A certain number of missions must be completed as an observer before a nurse can officially go on a mission as a critical flight nurse. The timing of this process is dependent on the frequency and types of missions for which the helicopter is assigned. For more information, please contact our LifeFlight base at (902) 873-3657.
