The care you provide is critical, so it's critical that we take care of you.  

That's the Boone Touch.

Announcing a generous pay differential for adult ICU and Step Down staff nurses.


Nursing in an intensive care or step down unit can be incredibly rewarding. It can also be challenging. Caring for a hospitals sickest patient population requires specialized training and knowledge.  

Boone Hospital Center takes pride in our ICU and Step Down Unit. This is why we are offering a pay differential to these nursing staffs. We want the best. Our patients deserve it.

To be eligible for our differential pay, you must have at least nine months of ICU or Step Down experience. This experience can come from working at another hospital or your first nine months working at Boone.

In addition to a generous differential, new staff members are eligible for a sign-on bonus:

  • RN's with 6 months - 5 years experience are eligible for a $5,000 sign-on bonus
  • RN's with more than 5 years experience are eligible for a $10,000 sign-on bonus

Our Intensive Care Unit houses 32 beautifully decorated, private rooms with state-of-the-art equipment. We specialize in the care of medical, neurological, neurosurgical, cardiothoracic surgical, and endovascular surgical patients all in one unit. Nurses in our critical care areas are able to specialize their knowledge and skills as well as have experience with all types of critically ill patients. 

Boone Hospital’s ICU is staffed 24/7 with a team of board-certified physicians and mid-level providers in addition to our world-renowned nursing team, all of whom work together to provide excellent care around the clock.
