LICENSED PRACTICAL NURSE - $10,000 SIGN ON BONUS
Company: Conway Medical Center
Posted on: September 25, 2022
Offers of employment at Conway Medical Center's (CMC) ambulatory
locations are for a primary work location (typically one ambulatory
site location). Employees will work at that location the majority
of time. However, all CMC staff function as one larger team when
needed. In order to ensure patients, receive consistent care with
little disruption, employees are required and must be positively
willing to "float" to assist at any site location as a condition of
accepting employment with CMC. This may include any support
function and across any case load including work assignments at
other practices that may not be the normal primary work location.
When "floating" occurs, staff may request reimbursement for mileage
expense for travel that otherwise would not have occurred to and
from the primary location. Additionally, it is understood that
staff may float to secondary work locations where they are not
familiar with staff, physician preferences and the physical work
location. Thus, an orientation to the secondary location will occur
and staff reserve the authority to professionally, temporarily and
without recourse decline a task for which they feel they are not
adequately trained or competent to perform safely, until such time
a staff member can conduct competency training and education.
The Licensed Practical Nurse-PNS (LPN) is responsible for direct
nursing care of assigned patients under the supervision of a
registered nurse or physician in patient care area. The LPN
provides and documents direct nursing care of assigned patients
under the supervision of a registered nurse or physician. Nursing
care is guided by the physician orders and the nursing plan of
care. Patient response to care is reported to a registered nurse
for evaluation, intervention and modification of the plan of care.
The LPN assists physicians and other nursing personnel in the
performance of various diagnostic procedures. The LPN performs
functions as noted above and generally with an assigned patient
load, but LPN is ready and willing to assist co-workers with ANY
nursing support function and across any case load including other
units that may not be the normal primary work assignment.
