Job Summary: Applies the nursing process to plan and implement the care of patients, including patient and family education and continuum of care planning. Effectively communicates pertinent patient/family information to the health care team. Collaborates in establishing patient goals and evaluates progress to ensure effective outcomes. Furthers professional growth by engaging in learning activities according to the Board of Nursing standards.
The environment on our unit is friendly and family oriented. Leadership is supportive of personal and professional staff growth. We have many highly experienced nurses with ICU backgrounds. Staff is very supportive of each other. They readily welcome and share their knowledge with all new nurses. They are always eager to help and "pitch in" when needed.
We care for adult patients who electively or emergently are having surgery. Our patients may be having a simple procedure that allows them to go home the same day or undergoing very complex surgeries that will require them to be cared for in an intensive care setting. Surgery is a unique place in healthcare. After surgery, patients' lives are changed.
There are many advantages to working in VOR Holding/PACU. We have a flexible scheduling system with a variety of 9, 10, and 12-hour shifts. Staff can have the opportunity to connect with multiple patients and families every day and at the most vulnerable and critical time in their lives.
Our nurses are successful because we maintain a strong Shared Governance structure. Our Unit Board meets every month. Staff work with leadership addressing all aspects of their practice to improve the care of patients/families and increase satisfaction in their work environment.
