Job Description

\*\* _**Do not submit candidate who have or will have expiring licenses and/or certifications during timeframe of entire assignment. Candidates will automatically be declined\*\***_

Needing a strong IMC nurseAcute Medical and Progressive Care Unit is comprised of 21 medical beds with acutely ill patients who have a variety of co morbidities that impact their primary diagnosis, medical, and nursing plan of care. Some patients suffer from multisystem disease processes that require specialized nursing care with the potential for more intensive monitoring and care when unforeseen complications arise. The unit also specializes in care of patients with Cystic Fibrosis. Progressive Care is an 8 bed unit for patients with fragile hemodynamic stability and requires an increased level of nursing care and surveillance which prevents them from transitioning to a medical unit. Some patients transition from a critical care unit directly to Progressive Care to promote continuity by allowing specialized monitoring, treatments, and nursing care to continue without jeopardizing quality and outcomes. Nurses embrace the Primary Nurse Model of Care and are all knowledgeable and competent in providing care to both Acute Medical/Progressive Care patients. In addition to being proficient in noninvasive and invasive cardiac monitoring and certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support, nurses pursue specialty certification in Medical-Surgical and Progressive Care Nursing.
