Nemours is seeking a Registered Nurse - Ortho/Rehab - Rotating Shifts to join our team in Wilmington, DE.

As one of the nation’s leading pediatric health care systems, Nemours is committed to providing all children with their best chance to grow up healthy. We offer integrated, family-centered care to more than 280,000 children each year in our pediatric hospitals, specialty clinics and primary care practices in Delaware, Florida, Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Nemours strives to ensure a healthier tomorrow for all children – even those who may never enter our doors – through our world-changing research, education and advocacy efforts. At Nemours, our Associates help us deliver on the promise we make to every family we have the privilege of serving: to treat their child as if they were our own.

As the birthplace of the Nemours health care system, the Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware, honors our legacy of delivering exceptional care to the children of the Delaware Valley and beyond. Ranked among the nation’s best pediatric hospitals by U.S. News & World Report and honored with the ANCC’s Magnet® Designation for excellence in nursing practice, we offer intensive and acute inpatient and outpatient services covering more than 30 pediatric specialties. We recently completed a multi-phase hospital expansion that includes new inpatient rooms, Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and Emergency Department. Additionally, Nemours duPont Pediatrics allows us to reach more children across the region through community-based physician services and collaborative partnerships with health and hospital systems.

3 West is 24-bed unit that cares for patients of all ages. This unit is designated for acute rehabilitation of both traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury, comprehensive rehabilitation and ventilator-dependent rehabilitation patients with tracheotomies. Additional services include orthopedic surgical care, medically complex pediatric patients, transitional neonatal care, neurosurgery and non-surgical neurologic care, as well as video EEG studies.

Special equipment includes ventilators, portable suction, feeding pumps, BiPAP and CPAP machines, infusion pumps and wound vacutainers. Each bed is also equipped with bedside monitors and computers, compressed air, oxygen and vacuum hook-up for suction.

Patient care unit goals are to provide high-quality, cost-effective care. Patient and Family Centered Care is the nursing model used to provide care for all patients. Patients’ and families’ needs are assessed, interventions provided and outcomes evaluated based upon departmental policies and procedures, as well as multidisciplinary standards of care and practice. This unit also provides education to families and caregivers to ensure they are comfortable caring for their child.
