Job Description

>

You.

 

You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory Registered Nurse.

 

You know how to stay organized and move fast. You respond calmly in high pressure situations.

 

You’re generous with your thoughts, your partnerships, and especially your passion for patient care.

 

You’re great at what you do, but you want to be part of something even greater. Because you believe that while individuals can be strong, the right team is invincible.

 

Us.

 

Our Cath Lab has the highest quality equipment and digital technology, offering both inpatient and outpatient diagnostic and interventional procedures.  We use a holistic approach to our heart care as an Accredited Chest Pain Center and our best practices reduce the time we take treating patients during the critical early stages of a heart attack.  Less than one in five Colorado hospitals is able to offer this level of expertise when treating patients with symptoms of a heart attack.

 

We pride ourselves in being ahead of the curve, as we were the first hospital in Colorado and one of the first in the nation to offer a minimally-invasive procedure to treat peripheral artery disease (PAD) in the upper leg as well as being one of the first facilities in the United States to have the new Azurion imaging system installed in our Cath Lab.  We are proud to be an accredited Chest Pain Center, a Primary Stroke Center, and a Level III Trauma Center.

 

Platte Valley Medical Center is a partner of SCL Health which is a nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. Our 98-bed community hospital is proud to offer comprehensive, integrated care focused on holistic health. We are proud to extend the mission of SCL Health by providing care for the poor, the vulnerable, our communities and each other.

 

Benefits are one of the ways we encourage health for you and your family. Our generous package includes medical, dental and vision coverage. But health is more than a well-working body: it encompasses body, mind and social well-being. To that end, we’ve launched a Healthy Living program to address your holistic health. Healthy Living includes financial incentives, digital tools, tobacco cessation, classes, counseling and paid time off. We also offer financial wellness tools and retirement planning.

 

We.

 

Together we’ll align mission and careers, values and workplace. We’ll honor each other’s dignity and surpass the standards we set. We’ll encourage joy, demand safety and take pride in our integrity.

 

We’ll laugh at each other’s jokes (even the bad ones). We’ll hello and high five. We’ll celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.

 

We’re proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn.

 

Your day.

 

As a Cath Lab RN you need to know how to:

 

  • Recognize and address patients’ psychological and physical needs
  • Foster continuity and quality of care with the best interest and well-being of patients and their families in mind
  • Assess a patients’ medical status upon admission
  • Assist in developing individualized treatment plans
  • Comply with evaluation, treatment and documentation guidelines

 

Your experience.

 

We hire people, not resumes. But we also expect excellence, which is why we require:

 

  • ASN / ADN from an accredited program with the ability to obtain your BSN from an accredited program within four (4) years of hire unless you possess a minimum of fifteen (15) years of proven continuous Registered Nurse experience in an acute care setting, required
  • Current Colorado RN license or compact license with the ability to obtain Colorado RN license, required
  • Current BLS certification endorsed by the American Heart Association or the ability to obtain within sixty (60) days of hire (with prior approval), required (ACLS/NRP/PALS as appropriate for unit or service)
  • At least one (1) year of nursing experience in a Cath Lab setting, highly preferred

 

Your next move.

 

Now that you know more about being a Cath Lab RN on our team we hope you’ll join us. At SCL Health you’ll reaffirm every day how much you love this work, and why you were called to it in the first place.
