Kent Hospital 455 Tollgate Road Warwick ,RI
Weekend & Holiday Shift
We have part time and full time opportunities for experience Emergency Room RNs on both evening and night shift. We are offering a $10,000 sign on bonus for external RN candidates that have one year or more of Emergency Services experience. Emergency room nurses are registered nurses (RNs) who assist doctors and other medical staff and provide direct care to patients. When patients arrive, they help assess the needs of each individual and determine the treatment order, and they may assist in performing tests on patients. In an emergency room setting, there are no scheduled appointments, so emergency room nurses must be prepared to deal with a wide range of injuries and illnesses as patients arrive. Because they treat patients who have been in accidents, they may spend much of their time working with critically injured patients, providing life-saving care. Emergency room (ER) nurses must be able to perform well under stressful conditions. As an ER nurse, you'll work with patients who might be confused, disoriented, unconscious or semi-conscious. You'll be responsible for administering medication, tracking vital signs, keeping family members informed and assisting doctors during ER procedures. Patients with serious or life threatening conditions depend on the ability of the emergency room staff.
BSN or enrollment in a BSN program required for all external candidates and a minimum of one year’s job-related experience. RI State Licensure and BLS certification are required; ACLS/PALS preferred.
