Registered Nurse 2 (E S WSNA)
The Heart Institute at the University of Washington Medical Center has an exceptional opportunity for a full time Registered Nurse for the outpatient Cardiology Clinic/Echo position. The UW Medicine Heart Institute nurses do not work holiday shifts allowing for work life balance in the beautiful northwest community.

If you are a highly organized, creative, and dynamic nurse who can help deliver highly interactive care and education to patients and be a good advocate for our patients and their families, this is the position for you. We require an RN with exemplary communication and teaching skills, ability to multi-task and prioritize in a fast-paced environment.

The RN will collaborate with our multi-disciplinary team consisting of cardiologists, surgeons, interventionalists, other sub-specialty nurses, advanced practice providers, research team, and administrative staff to coordinate, support, and optimize the medical care of our complex patient population.

The Echo RN is responsible for managing the patient undergoing different Echocardiogram and Stress tests and doing Definity and Bubble Studies on the inpatient and outpatient setting.

Strong IV skills and conscious sedation experience desired.  ACLS and BLS required. 2 years of outpatient or inpatient Cardiology/Telemetry experience required. BSN strongly preferred. Must be able to work Saturday shifts and be able to cover satellite locations, i.e South Lake Union.

There are weekly team meetings, case conferences, cardiac grand rounds, journal clubs and other educational opportunities that the RN can attend to grow professionally.  As a teaching hospital and research center, we're deeply committed to the enhancement of care for our patients-as well as the professional growth of our staff. As a testament to this commitment, we're proud to be recognized with Magnet Hospital status by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. In fact, we were the first hospital to receive this designation. We're also consistently named one of the nation's best hospitals, as reported by U.S. News and World Report.

Such national recognition attests to our commitment to high-quality care, and to the outstanding professionalism and skill that exists at UWMC. As a registered nurse (RN), you can be a part of this highly skilled team, working within a culture that is both innovative and collaborative. Here, you will work in tandem with physicians and other health care practitioners to provide superior, award-winning nursing care. In short, you will not only follow best practice, you will create it!

Committed to attracting and retaining a diverse staff, the University of Washington will honor your experiences, perspectives and unique identity. Together, our community strives to create and maintain working and learning environments that are inclusive, equitable and welcoming.

The University of Washington is a leader in environmental stewardship & sustainability, and committed to becoming climate neutral.
