Progressive Care Nurse - (PCU RN)
StartDate: ASAP Available Shifts: 12 N Pay Rate: $24.00 - 28.00

-#15 on Modern Healthcare Best Places to Work 2016-

As a valued member of the Neuro IMC nursing team, you will care for patients with a wide range of conditions including complex cases. This role is perfect for passionate caregivers who want to experience cutting edge technologies and top notch patient care models.

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.
