Job Description

You.

 

You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a Post-Anesthesia Care Registered Nurse.

 

Your compassion is tangible: patients feel it in the hand they hold. Families feel it in your prayers. Colleagues feel it in your support.

 

You know how to stay organized and move fast.  You thrive in fast-paced environments.

 

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.

 

If you are looking for a medical center that cares for patients throughout their entire medical and surgical treatment program, you have come to the right place.  At Good Samaritan Medical Center, we care for our patients from diagnosis to complete recovery. We have a comprehensive team of board certified surgeons and healthcare professionals who provide our patients with the best surgical care available.

 

We are proud to be an accredited Chest Pain Center, a Cardiovascular Center of Excellence, a Primary Stroke Center, and a Level II Trauma Center.

 

Good Samaritan Medical Center is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. At our 234-bed Level II Trauma Center, our mission is to bring health and hope to the poor, the vulnerable, our communities and each other. We’re especially proud of our people, who helped make us one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals according to Healthgrades.

 

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 PACU 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 two (2) years of nursing experience in a comparable acute care/procedural setting, highly preferred
