Staff Nurse UPMC McKeesport Rotational Program (2021)

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.

Sign-On Bonus Details:

$10,000 for registered nurses or graduate nurses with less than two years of experience

Candidates hired into a sign-on bonus eligible role will be asked to make a two-year work commitment.

The Med Surg rotational program is a new UPMC McKeesport initiative and will start a new class in February 2021. Selected participants will rotate through various Med Surg units (step-down, ortho/surgical, observation/telemetry, medicine/oncology, and specialty focus med surg floors) for six months. Having a resource 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 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 8 or 12-hour schedule to ensure 24/7 coverage on the floor.
