Intensive Care Nursing Director ICU

An exciting opportunity has opened for a compassionate and experienced Nursing Director to oversee this high-volume, high-acuity Intensive Care Unit. Apply today, and join a team of dedicated ICU and CVICU clinicians and caregivers in one of the Texas Panhandle’s most cutting-edge and progressive medical centers.

This multi-specialty Critical Care Unit / Intensive Care Unit has had an astounding track record of delivering the highest quality, award winning care. The ICU Nursing Director will take direct clinical and managerial oversight of 2 high-performing 20-bed ICUs, a CVICU unit, and 2 Progressive / Intermediate Care Telemetry Units which sees a broad range of patients and cases.

This Critical Care Unit is also well-known for its Cardiovascular ICU (CVICU) Services, so the Director’s experience with ECMO, VAD, IABP, CRRT, as well as post-open heart care will certainly be in high demand.

Reporting to the Vice President of Nursing Services / CNO, the ICU Nursing Director will oversee a large and complex service line. Supporting you in this task are two CCRN Critical Care Nurse Managers who oversee clinical and administrative operations for the unit, as well as a few very strong and tenured ICU Charge Nurses who are experts in high-acuity patient care. Additional support comes from an amazing staff of experienced Intensive Care RNs, Providers, Educators, and Ancillary Personnel.

The ICU Nursing Director will play a crucial role in the clinical and administrative operations of this unit, and of this hospital. You will actively participate in the development and planning of the annual budget for this unit, setting and maintaining target staffing levels, and keeping a close eye on regulatory compliance for the Intensive Care Unit. This healthcare system has a great reputation for supporting the continuing education of its nurses, and this applies to roles like the Intensive Care Director.

If the Director has a strong inclination toward improving clinical performance and producing superior patient outcomes, your talents will join those of an already outstanding unit. You will collaborate across disciplines and departments to ensure that patient care is front and center. The ICU Intensive Care Nursing Director will provide vision, leadership, and mentorship to a strong staff of Critical Care Registered Nurses (CCRN) by focusing on the continuum of care and optimizing patient flow.

Whether you’re the type person who appreciates the quiet solitude and breeze of the West Texas winds over the Great Plains, or the type who enjoys the sounds, sights, and smells of city culture, the Director of ICU will find something to love here. With a proud culinary history, many frontier museums, and a bustling tourist industry, you’ll discover moments of awe. A short (or long) trip out of town will yield many miles of hiking and biking trails, boating, and some of the Texas’ most amazing parks.

The Intensive Care Nurse Director will play a crucial role in the administrative and clinical operations of this medical center. You’ll support the health and well-being of the patients, the region, and you’ll support the mission of this hospital. You, in turn, will be supported by a strong and tenured executive leadership team, a competitive compensation package, and a generous benefits structure.
