The Registered Nurse (RN) is accountable and responsible for clinical decision making and coordination of a patients’ care during an assigned shift or throughout the length of stay on a unit. The RN exercises independent judgment to assess patient needs, to develop the plan of nursing actions in collaboration with the health care team, to implement the plan and to evaluate the effects and outcome of the care provided.

The RN utilizes excellent communication skills, both verbal and written, in collaborating with Medical and Nursing Staff, Support and Ancillary Services, Administration, Community Providers, patients, families and care givers. May be required to work on other nursing units as patient needs require.
