As a Stepdown Registered Nurse your responsibilities consist of:
Developing a care plan for the patient while collaborating with other healthcare team members.
Closely monitoring the care of the patient and take precautions to make sure they are stable.
Preforming patient assessments (pre and post Intensive Care Unit care) and log results.
One year of experience as a Stepdown Registered Nurse within the past two years.
Active Nursing License in good standing.
Up to date Basic Life Support from American Heart Association.
Must pass pre-employment drug screen.
Missouri is the "Show Me" state and it has lots to show great nurses such as yourself. Missouri is a microcosm of America with lots of arts, culture, fine dining and nightlife in the big cities and natural beauty and outdoor recreational opportunities in the the rest of the state.
The middle of Missouri is full of natural beauty. The Lake of the Ozarks is a great place for boating, skiing or enjoying a few days of at one of the many resorts surrounding it. Ha Ha Tonka is a spectacular hiking spot (with a deserted castle) and Missouri features some spectacular caves, including Bridal Cave, also in the Ozarks.
Even further south is the entertainment destination of Branson and Silver Dollar City. Missouri definitely has something to "show" to registered nurses.
