  • Northside Hospital
  • Northside, Cincinnati, OH, USA

Job Description

The Registered Professional Nurse at Northside Hospital independently plans and provides professional nursing care to patients in accordance with physician orders and established guidelines, and in accordance with the scope of practice as defined by the Georgia Nurse Practice Act.

We are a medical unit with a focus on the gastrointestinal system. Many of our patients present through the emergency department with a variety of interesting and complicated diagnosis. The nurses on GI Medicine get very familiar working alongside patients with non-specified abdominal pain, acute pancreatitis, crohns disease and GI Bleeds. The nursing team goes through specific competency to administer transfusions independently in order to ensure timely treatment for the patients we serve. We work closely with the GI Lab, prepping, sending and receiving patients in need of colonoscopies or endoscopies. Working on this unit you will have the opportunity to build professional relationships with patients who come back multiple times due to their diagnosis and disease processes. This is an exciting unit with lots to offer and great teamwork!
