Reporting to the RN Manager of Medical Surgical, with a dotted line to a CMSRN Charge Nurse and Administrative House Supervisors, the Medical Unit Staff Nurse will play a crucial role in providing patient care. Working with an excellent team of Inpatient and Acute Care Nurses, this person will have the chance to apply their skills and experience in both Adult and Pediatric Nursing.
Primarily, this Staff Nurse will work in the 18-bed Medical Unit at this 100+ bed hospital. This unit sees a wide range of patients, but is usually populated by those suffering from Stoke, Heart Attack, and Pneumonia.
