Registered Nurse - RN - MS/Stepdown Annex - Up to $7K New Hire Incentives

Company: Scripps Health
Location: Chula Vista
Posted on: March 18, 2023

Job Description:

Scripps Health Administrative Services supports our five hospitals and 19 outpatient facilities, which treat half a million patients annually through 2,600 affiliated physicians.
The Medical Surgical Annex Unit at Scripps Mercy Chula Vista is a combined unit with M/S, Tele and PCU patients downgraded from ICU level of care. Patient population includes stroke, cardiac, S/P coronary angiography patients, and critical drip protocols patients. The unit focuses on patients that need continuous cardiac monitoring for myocardial infraction, chest pain, unstable angina, hypertension, percutaneous coronary intervention, diabetes, and renal failure.

Join the Medical Surgical Annex as an RN where you will be trained and care for higher level of acuity through our Center for Learning and Innovation's IMU/PCU 5-week transition program. The step-up program will prepare you to rotate between patients in two levels of care: step-down and med/surg/tele. You must be comfortable working with cardiac rhythm interpretation, cardiac drips, and respiratory support. The ideal candidate will have a minimum 12 months of RN experience with 6 months in an inpatient setting such as SNF, LTAC or Acute Care. This is a great opportunity for RNs looking to move to a higher level of acuity since you will be working in conjunction with the ICU staff.

As a RN, you will provide direct patient care within the scope of your practice. Patient care includes assessment, planning, and implementing a plan of care and evaluating patients' progress towards expected outcomes. You will take primary responsibility for the patients' care as delivered by the Care Team under his/her supervision and work collaboratively with other members of the patient care team to ensure optimal patient care.
