Department Overview:
    Our department is open Monday-Friday with rotating weekends. First RN arrives at 6:30A and others stagger in afterward.
  • Our nurses work in cardiac noninvasive diagnostic services. Our interdisciplinary team includes various professions such as RNs, echocardiographers, cardiac noninvasive techs, and transcriptionist. We also work closely with nuclear medicine and partners with cardiac and radiology providers.
  • RN's supervise nuclear and cardiac stress test (on the job training provided), administer medication related to echocardiographs and stress testing, assist with holter/event monitors
  • No call requirements, but there will be rotating weekend requirements (when fully staffed, 1 in every 3 weekends. Half day on Saturday and Sunday). The staff member will have reduced weekday hours on the weeks where they are working on a weekend.
  • This is a specialized position, so the ideal candidate would thrive off of working at the top of their license.
