As a top provider of care to their community, this PCU prides itself on optimal patient outcomes with compassionate care. This unit is looking for compassionate and committed RN's who are dedicated to providing comprehensive care to these important patients.
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.

Established in 1955, this hospital is committed to the mission of providing residents of the Greater Tulsa area with high quality medical care. What began as a 275 bed facility has blossomed over the years into a 8975-bed acute care hospital. Today, the facility is always looking to further expand its capacity, having recently opened a dedicated cancer center that brings together radiation therapy, chemotherapy services, laboratory and support service in one location. The Joint Commission accredited hospital is regarded as one of the finest in the state and offers a comprehensive array of inpatient and outpatient services to its patients.
From its modern presence in the arts and entertainment communities to its extensive history, Tulsa is a perfect example of what America is all about.
