Progressive Care Nurse - (PCU RN)
StartDate: ASAP Available Shifts: 12 N

The elite team members of this PCU unit are seeking a like-minded, compassionate RN to join their ranks. With a care-giving model based on optimal patient outcomes, the ideal candidate will bring experience, innovation, and passion to their practice.

A progressive care nurse (PCU RN) works in a progressive care unit (PCU) and cares for patients requiring close monitoring and frequent assessment, but who aren't unstable enough to need ICU care. PCU RNs use computer equipment to monitor cardiac and other vital information and detect any changes, thereby enabling intervention of life-threatening or emergency situations. Close observation is necessary as many PCU patients receive a significant amount of complex meds, sometimes through an intravenous line that may need to be adjusted or titrated. The PCU RN is sometimes also called a step-down nurse or telemetry nurse, and the PCU is also known as cardiac stepdown, medical stepdown, neuro stepdown, surgical stepdown, and ER holding.
