Job Description

You.

 

You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as an Interventional Radiology 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 accreditation by the American College of Radiology as a Center of Excellence means we meet or exceed the highest standards in patient care, safety and outcomes. As a matter of protocol, we strive to achieve the lowest doses of radiation possible, with our patients’ safety in mind. 

 

As an integral part of our IR team, you will have the opportunity to use imaging techniques to guide small instruments into the body for purposes of diagnosis and treatment.  The schedule for this position will include an on-call rotation.

 

We are proud to be a Heart and Neurovascular Center, an accredited Chest Pain Center, a Comprehensive Stroke Center, and a Level III Trauma Center.

 

Lutheran Medical Center is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. Our 249-bed community-based hospital has been awarded the highest national recognition possible for nursing excellence - Magnet designation - by the ANCC. We are proud to extend the mission of SCL Health by providing comprehensive, specialty care to the poor, the vulnerable, our communities and each other. Dating back to 1905, we are proud of the rich history and inspiring mission our hospital has embodied for over 110 years. 

 

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.

  • Recognize and address patients’ psychological and physical needs
