A strongly accredited facility in the high dessert of New Mexico is currently hiring a Critical Care Nurse to join their wonderful team of Healthcare Leaders. I strongly encourage RN's to apply that are looking for their next career step in joining a hardworking, caring, and selfless group of individuals. This is a 400+ bed acute-care facility with state-of-the-art technology to top it being one of the most respected Healthcare organizations nationally.
The Critical Care Nurse will be reporting directly up to the Director ICU and will be led and trained by the ICU Supervisor of the unit alongside multiple other Staff Nurses. This RN will be collaborating with other units to assure quality patient care throughout the entire facility, monitoring patients, administering medications, and tending to basic needs. They will be stationed in an extremely busy Intensive Care Unit (ICU), needing to be quick on their feet as the patients will often be in need of IV drips, more ventilation, and intubation. There is consistent support between the staff members as they treat each other with the same mindset in mind, wanting to help each and every patient with their medical needs.
As the backbone of the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), this Critical Care Nurse requires the ability to care for unstable patients, and be completely attentive to the condition of each and every individual as they require close monitoring.
The tasks of the Critical Care Nurse include:
- Checking and recording patient vitals to check condition through documentation
- Drawing lab results for patient updates
- Caring to wounds
- Communicating with family & friends of patients on patient updates
This large acute-care facility is stationed the beautiful dessert of New Mexico. The area is known for its historical context with much site seeing and museum history, as well as outdoor activities including mountain biking, hiking, camping, and much more. It feels like summer all year around, other than the chilly desert nights! If this appeals to you, I encourage you to apply now for consideration to join this team - they are actively interviewing for a Critical Care Nurse.
This facility is also offering a competitive base salary with great benefits. Don't forget the sign on bonus to top it!
