Nursing Service - NS-5 West
7:00 AM-7:00 PM
This 23 bed medical surgical telemetry unit cares for a variety of diagnosis. The patients admitted to this floor are a high acuity medical surgical population, but do not require step-down staffing ratios. You can expect to care for 5 or 6 patients, although our goal remains 5:1. Ancillary staff are provided on this unit to ensure you can spend as much time as possible with your patients. Teamwork is essential on this unit as it can be fast paced and challenging.
Your orientation will consist of 3 weeks for experienced nurses and 12 weeks for new graduates. A telemetry certification is required, ACLS is preferred, but can be obtained through our Career Institute. You may be enrolled in our medical surgical course at your request or at the discretion of the nurse manager.
If you are self directed, want to learn, and compassionate about your patient care this is your next job!
