Operating Room Professional Development Nurse

A great new leadership opportunity at one of Massachusetts top teaching hospitals has recently become available for a Perioperative Services Clinical Nursing Educator.

The Operating Room Professional Development Nurse will join a 150+ bed hospital that has been nationally awarded for quality and safety. The hospital is known for delivering world class clinical care and has been recognized for excellence in treating heart failure patients by the American Heart Association and U.S News and World Report. The Leapfrog Group has awarded the hospital an “A” safety grade for 14 consecutive years for its commitment to reducing errors, infections, and accidents. The hospital is also one of only two in Massachusetts to be recognized as a Top Teaching Hospital by The Leapfrog Group.

The Perioperative Services Clinical Nursing Educator will join the leadership team of a busy surgical wing that houses 6 operating rooms that perform an average of 600 cases per month. The majority of the cases performed at the hospital are orthopedic cases with a high volume of total joint replacements. There are also a high volume of vascular cases performed and there are plans to bring in a spine surgeon in early 2020. 

Reporting to the Director of Perioperative Services, the Operating Room Professional Development Nurse will act as a mentor and provide clinical coaching to staff nurses in the operating room. The Perioperative Services Clinical Nursing Educator will be responsible for patient and staff education, nursing consultations, educational program development, and unit efficiency. They will also analyze nursing methods and help develop plans for improving the continuum of care throughout the patient stay.

Situated in a beautiful part of Southeast Massachusetts about 15 miles from the coast, the Operating Room Professional Development Nurse will be living in a city that prides itself on its diversity of cultures. The city is home to an award winning public school system and has been named one of the best communities for young people multiple times over the past decade. There is a wealth of cultural and recreational opportunities in the city from golf courses and open spaces to museums. 

The Perioperative Clinical Nurse Educator will be offered a highly competitive compensation package including a high base salary, full suite of benefits, and paid time off.
