Registered Nurse, Cardiology Unit

Full Time, 72 Hours Per Pay Period, Day Shift

Every other weekend, some minor and major holidays

 

2N is a 23 bed cardiac floor. We take patients that have heart catheterizations, pacemakers, and ablations. We take critical drips that only 2N and ICU can take. 2N is great stepping stone for nurses that want to get into ICU or the ER, but would like acute care experience first.

The Cardiology unit works as team to provide excellent care to our patients, their families, and each other. If you are ready to learn about the heart, our Cardiology unit is the place to be! Our Cardiologists will even patiently answer any questions you may have. We are a family at work and outside of work and would love to have you join our team.
