Job Description

To show our commitment to you and to assist with your transition into our organization, we will also offer up to a $15,000 sign-on and $5,000 in relocation assistance for experienced RNs.



You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as an Oncology Shift Specialty Coordinator / Charge 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 and enjoy putting patients at ease while developing trusting relationships with them throughout their treatment plan.


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.




We offer services ranging from prevention, screening, and diagnosis through treatment, survivorship, and if need be, end-of-life care. Advanced technology to screen for, diagnose and monitor cancer include tomosynthesis (3-D mammography) and a 64-slice PET/CT scanner.


As part of treatment, we apply some of the latest tools available to attack tumors and other forms of cancer with precision, while protecting nearby healthy tissue. These include:


  • Varian TrueBeam™ linear accelerator
  • Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS/SBRT)
  • 4-D computed tomography
  • Surgical margin probing devices to detect trace amounts for cancer cells
  • Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT)/Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT)
  • Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT)


We are proud to be an accredited Chest Pain Center, a Primary Stroke Center, and a private teaching hospital.


Saint Joseph Hospital is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. Our 365-bed facility is one of the top-ranked hospitals in Denver, and 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 care for the poor, the vulnerable, our communities and each other. Our deep community roots date back to 1873, making us one of the oldest hospitals in Colorado.


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 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.
