Assistant Nurse Manager - Medicine/Telemetry - McClure 6
This is our newest Medicine/Telemetry specialty unit that provides care to patients who are acutely ill with a wide variety of medical problems and diseases. Currently this unit is providing care for our COVID patients who are not requiring care in our ICU. Our medical nurses have a solid knowledge of diseases and body systems, and are skilled at multi-tasking and high-level critical thinking. Every patient presents with individual medical, psycho social, and behavioral needs for whom the medical nurse is skilled at developing and implementing a patient-centered plan of care.
Joining this unit provides you with a unique opportunity to help build a new team, a new unit, and a new culture. We are seeking individuals who have strong team skills, detail oriented, and work well with change. There will be opportunities for professional engagement with the planning, team building, training, and clinical practice development.
Professional growth and development is strongly encouraged and supported in the Department of Nursing including participating in Nursing Professional Governance, Unit Based Practice Council, Specialty Nurse Practice Groups, and the Clinical Advancement and Recognition Program to name a few. We look forward to you either beginning or continuing your career with the University of Vermont Medical Center organization and this Medicine/Telemetry patient care team.
