Harrison Bremerton is part of CHI Franciscan Health, one of the largest health care systems in the Puget Sound. As the Olympic Peninsula's busiest medical center, we offer award-winning care for people in Kitsap, North Mason, Clallam and Jefferson counties. Since 1918, our providers have helped local families stay healthy with skilled, compassionate care. Our mission is to make a positive difference in people's lives through exceptional health care.



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.
