Description

Are you graduating in May from nursing school and looking to gain experience in your nursing career? Take a look at the rotational program that UPMC Hamot has to offer. You will rotate through various units within the hospital while working alongside an experienced nurse.


UPMC Hamot is pleased to announce we are NOW HIRING Graduate Nurses as full-time Staff Nurses to support various hospital units as part of a special Rotational Program. UPMC Hamot is a medical system that reaches out to more than 1 million people in northwestern Pennsylvania, western New York and eastern Ohio.


The Medical/Surgical rotational program is a new initiative specific to Hamot and will begin in July 2020. Selected participants will rotate through various Medical/Surgical units (Cardiac-Surgical, Bariatric, Renal, Intermediate-Unit, Trauma/Orthopedics, Medical-Respiratory Intermediate Unit and the Float Pool) for six months. Having a resource pool nurse as 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 Medical/Surgical 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.
