At St. Vincent North the nurses work alongside top ranked Neurosurgeons in an internationally recognized center for neurosurgery.

The ICU strongly supports nurses by providing them with essential skills to be successful in this extraordinary environment. The unit offers a variety of advanced neurological monitoring techniques and innovative interventions that allow for the best possible outcome for the patients.

Your documentation and communication is thorough, adding value to the whole nursing team. You position your teammate to do his, her, or their best work benefiting your shared patients by ensuring a smooth transition at shift change when you give a report.

Project management is a natural talent as you will coordinate care between multiple patients while keeping your entire healthcare team on track with shared goals. 

 

CHI St Vincent provides you with the same level of care you provide for others. We care about our employees well-being and offer benefits that complement work/life balance.
