If you like the natural beauty of the Northeast, but also want to be close to the big city, MedPro Healthcare Staffing has several nursing openings in the ideal location for you – Poughkeepsie, New York. There are jobs available in intensive care, pediatrics, labor and delivery, recovery room and emergency room nursing.
Intensive care nurses have the skills needed to manage the care of patients who are experiencing life-threatening problems and require complex assessment, high-intensity therapies and interventions. These nurses ensure that life support equipment is functioning properly, monitor patients’ vital signs, administer medication and meticulously document care given to patients.
Pediatric nurses provide care for children and adolescents who have a variety of physical or mental disabilities or acute/chronic medical conditions.
Labor and delivery nurses, also known as perinatal nurses, provide care and support for women before, during and after the delivery of a baby. Their role is to ensure the medical and emotional needs of the patient are met throughout the entire birthing process. They also educate and support mothers and their families after birth.
Recovery nurses work in post anesthesia care units. They assist in the recovery of patients from anesthesia. They also monitor patients from the time they wake from surgery until they are released, either being discharged to an outpatient status or transfer to the floor for their stay.
Emergency room nurses provide care for patients suffering from various types of illness or trauma that require emergency attention. These nurses must be able to recognize and treat life-threatening conditions. Because of the range of medical conditions they encounter, they must be knowledgeable about general and specific health issues. They also need to understand triage in order to prioritize injuries.
All of these positions require an active RN license, a degree from an accredited nursing program, certifications in their area of practice, and at least two years of experience in their area of practice.
