DescriptionPenn Medicine is dedicated to our tripartite mission of providing the highest level of care to patients, conducting innovative research, and educating future leaders in the field of medicine. Working for this leading academic medical center means collaboration with top clinical, technical and business professionals across all disciplines.
Penn Medicine Princeton Health is seeking a full-time Registered Nurse interested in the Pre Admission Testing Department.
The Pre Admission Testing Department serves patients of all ages who require surgical intervention such as general surgery, bariatric, otolaryngology, plastic, vascular, urology, orthopedic, gynecological, and robotic surgery. The unit also serves patients for procedures such as cardiac catheterization and interventional radiology. The department assesses the patient's care needs through care planning that is age specific. The RN will be responsible in preparation of the patient prior to surgery via a telephone or in-person encounter.
Registered Nurses are responsible for establishing a therapeutic relationship and an individualized plan of care with the patient for a defined period of time (length of stay on that unit) and for communicating that plan of care to his/her collaborative partners. The collaborative nurse follows the plan of care created by the Attending Nurse and the patient/family, making revisions based upon the patient’s response to treatment and changing needs. Registered Nurses are accountable for planning, delivering, coordinating, evaluating, and modifying the patient’s care for that defined period of time and for effectively transitioning that plan of care with attention to continuity across shift and settings of care. It is expected that the patients and/or families will know the name of the Attending Nurse, and the collaborative nurse. In order to achieve the defined outcomes of care, the registered nurse will assure that patients and families experience exceptional cooperation among all members of the health.
