PACU/Outpatient recovery experience strongly preferred; BLS/ACLS required.
Our patient population is Oncology patients. Radiation Oncology med surge nurses provides phase 1/ phase 2 recovery care for patients receiving high dose rate (HDR) and low dose rate (LDR) brachytherapy radiation treatments. Nurses are expected to cross cover and support the outpatient clinic, as needed, for patient weekly assessment (vitals, med rec, referrals) and patient education as it relates to radiation treatments. The med-surg nurse needs high-level critical thinking skills, vast knowledge of disease states and body systems, robust management skills, and the ability to stay calm under pressure. These qualities provide a well-rounded foundation for the start of your nursing career.
It is the responsibility of every Novant Health team member to deliver the most remarkable patient experience in every dimension, every time.
