Progressive Care Nurse - (PCU RN)
StartDate: ASAP Available Shifts: 12 D Pay Rate: $32.00 - 34.00

This outstanding float (MS/Tele/PCU) unit, based in a warm patient environment, is looking for the right RN to join their team of compassionate and driven health care professionals. This unit provides quality care for patients of all ages with a wide range of acute and/or chronic illnesses. Patients requiring a shorter length of stay for evaluation or testing purposes, as well as those who require surgery are also part of the unit. Join this highly motivated team of caregivers and enjoy a challenging and welcoming environment based on optimal patient 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.

Must have experience with vent patients
