Job Description & Requirements
Intensive Care Nurse - ICU Nurse - Travel - (ICU RN)
Many times, we get applicants with limited neuro and trauma experience and we have difficulty finding appropriate assignments. We three SCU’s, although we attempt to segregate different patient populations, it does not always work out that way, so the patents are assigned to the first available bed. SCU 3 is a 19 bed unit SCU 4 is a 14 bed unit SCU 5 is a 14 bed unit Our ratio is 2:1 or 3:1 depending on patient acuity. Our assignments are re-evaluated on a 4-hour basis, if not sooner, to assure nurse and patient safety. We schedule in the unit that needs help. We also can be pulled to the ICU to take an SCU assignment and to Hfam 7 (CCU) and take an SCU patient. We need someone who is able to make quick decisions on their feet, someone who is detail oriented, but able to see the bigger picture Someone who is eager and enthusiastic about work, someone who has integrity, and able to self-report mistakes or errors without fear of being reprimanded.
