StartDate: ASAP Available Shifts: 12 N Pay Rate: $23.00 - 25.00

This PCU features the latest in cutting-edge technology in addition to an effective, compassionate patient care model. This environment is creative and patient-centric, as well as professionally rewarding. If you are ready to join a caring staff, and are an experienced, dedicated RN, this is the role for you!

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.
