StartDate: 11/24/2017Available Shifts: 12 N Pay Rate: $28.00 - 30.00

Welcome to this fantastic unit, where compassionate care meets top notch technology and innovative care teams bring the best of themselves to their patients. You can expect a wide variety of conditions as this unit is a combination of acute and observation patients. Monitoring and interventions are provided for patients at risk for altered skin integrity, falls, minor cardiac and pneumonia, among other conditions. This unit prides themselves on a comfortable and comprehensive experience for all patients and they are looking for a team based member to join their elite group.

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.
