TRAVEL REGISTERED NURSE (RN) –PCU

CareerStaff Travel Nursing is looking for highly skilled PCU nurses for travel RN contract opportunities in Scranton, PA. The progressive care unit nursing job description entails work in a progressive care unit, caring for patients who need close monitoring and frequent assessment, but who aren't unstable enough to require ICU care. The PCU nurse uses computer equipment to monitor cardiac and other vital information and detect any changes, thereby enabling intervention of life-threatening or emergency situations. Close observation is necessary as many PCU patients receive a significant amount of complex medications, sometimes through an intravenous line that may need to be adjusted or titrated. The PCU nurse is sometimes also called a step-down nurse or telemetry nurse, and the PCU is also known as cardiac stepdown, medical stepdown, neuro stepdown, surgical stepdown and ER holding.

This medical center is a general medical and surgical hospital in Scranton, PA, with 270 beds. Survey data for the latest year available shows that 49,521 patients visited the hospital's emergency room. The hospital had a total of 12,036 admissions. Its physicians performed 3,240 inpatient and 3,702 outpatient surgeries

Scranton may be the sixth-largest metropolitan area in Pennsylvania, but the close-knit neighborhoods that surround the vibrant downtown give Scranton small-town appeal. The metro area owes its name to the Scranton family, who helped established the region as an iron and steel capital back in the 19th and 20th centuries. Courthouse Square, which lends itself to the Lackawanna County Courthouse, proudly boasts a number of historic and modern statues and monuments. Trendy restaurants, niche boutiques and art galleries provide an active downtown atmosphere. Scranton’s low crime rate and low cost of living make it a popular place for families, while the vital, healthy downtown is a magnet for millennials. The active social scene features an abundance of engaging events, such as First Friday Scranton, a free art walk at galleries and businesses around downtown; Scranton Jazz Festival, a three-day festival held every August; and La Festa Italiana, an end-of-summer event held on Courthouse Square, featuring Italian fare and live entertainment
