Job Description




You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a 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’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.



St. Mary’s Medical Center is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. Our 346-bed regional medical center is in Grand Junction, one of the most beautiful places on earth. Our mission is to bring health and hope to 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.



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 celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.

Your day.

As a Registered Nurse you know that every day is different, which is why you need to know how to:


  • Assess, recognize and address patients’ psychological and physical needs 

  • Foster continuity and quality of care with the best interests of patients and their families in mind 

  • Comply with evaluation, treatment and documentation guidelines 

  • Oversee care delivered by LPNs and/or CNAs 

  • Participate in clinical team conferences

  • Follow hospital, regulatory and professional guidelines, policies and procedures

  • Communicate compassionately and effectively 

Your experience.

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


  • ASN or BSN from an accredited program

  • Ability to obtain BSN within 4 years of hire unless you have a minimum  of 15 years’ proven, continuous, acute care RN experience, required

  • Current Colorado RN license 

  • Current BLS certification endorsed by the American Heart Association

  • One year of nursing experience in a comparable setting preferred 

Your next move.

Now that you know more about being a Registered Nurse 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.
