Responsibilities

Position Summary:

There's an unmistakable energy on the Telemetry floor. Here, you need quick thinking skills. Right now, there's a patient with chest pain, and you need to rule out causes. There's another patient with an external pacemaker who's on several drips requiring your constant attention. And that's just two of 80 beds. Fortunately, you work with a computerized charting system, and everything you need is on your mobile cart. Of course every day is busy, but you thrive on the challenge. You began as an intern, and this is preparing you for the next step in your career move to Critical Care.

That's not to say it's all about work. Dignity Health is very focused on work/life balance and giving employees a chance to nurture every aspect of your life. If you need to work around a family schedule, Dignity Health supports that. There are benefits to promote your health and well-being, as well as the health of your financial future. Dignity Health is known for providing exceptional training, and you're taking advantage of that. This is the Dignity Health Total Rewards program, rewarding you for a job well done.
