If you like the East Coast and the proximity to the culture and life of big cities, you might be interested in a job opportunity in the Baltimore area.
MedPro Healthcare Staffing, a Joint Commission-certified staffing agency, is seeking a quality Oncology Registered Nurse (RN) for a travel assignment in Baltimore, Maryland.
The Oncology RN will care for critically or chronically ill cancer patients. They will administer chemotherapy, implement new methods of symptom treatment and monitor their patients’ progress. Oncology nurses also create a supportive environment. They may opt to specialize in areas such as pediatric hematology/oncology or breast cancer.
The duties of the job include providing care for cancer patients throughout all stages of their conditions, especially the acute phase, assisting patients who are post-surgical to near-terminal manage their disease and treatment effectively and administering chemotherapy. The oncology nurse also educates cancer patients about treatment options, procedures and particularities of the disease.
The requirements for the job include an active RN license, a degree from an accredited nursing program, BLS and ACLS certifications and at least two years of recent experience in an acute care oncology setting.
As a MedPro employee, you will qualify for a range of benefits, including:
- Immediate access to the industry’s best recruiters and healthcare facilities
- Flexible scheduling around your needs
- Private housing or housing allowance
- Group health insurance benefits from Aetna
- Company-paid life and disability insurance
- Full travel reimbursement
- Licensure assistance and reimbursement
- Matching 401(k)
- Referral bonus
This job is located in the city of Baltimore. The city itself has a population of more than 600,000, while the entire Baltimore Metropolitan Area has a population of about 2.7 million.
Baltimore is the second largest mid-Atlantic seaport. The city’s Inner Harbor area was at one time the second largest point of entry for immigrants coming to the United States and also a major manufacturing center.
After manufacturing declined, the city shifted to a more service-oriented economy. The city’s two largest employers are now the Johns Hopkins Hospital and Johns Hopkins University.
More than 65,000 properties, or about one of every three buildings in the city, are listed on the National Historic Register, more than any other city in the country.
