Description

 

UPMC McKeesport is currently hiring a Full-time Staff Nurse to support various Med Surg units as part of a special rotational program at our McKeesport, PA location.

The Med Surg rotational program is a new UPMC McKeesport initiative and will begin in February 2020. Selected participants will rotate through various Med Surg units (step-down, clinical decision unit, medicine/oncology, and shadow time in the OR/PACU and ED) for six months. Having a mentor and having preceptors for each “rotation”, this is a fantastic opportunity to learn from many talented nurses and receive a broad education on Med Surg nursing. At the end of the “rotations”, you will be matched through a mutual matching process with a participating unit or you may remain in the resource pool.

Our RNs work a rotating 12-hour schedule to ensure 24/7 coverage on the floor.

The Staff Nurse provides highly competent patient care and treatment while demonstrating empathy and a passion for learning. A role that requires independent judgment, fluent communication, and candid partnership, the Staff Nurse establishes relationships with physicians, other care providers, patients, and patients’ families in order to achieve desired patient outcomes throughout the continuum of care.

A Registered Nurse and a member of the care delivery team, you will set the standards for the level and quality of nursing care, and possess authority and accountability for its provision. At all times, you will exemplify a commitment to the community and to the nursing profession.
