This includes collaborating with nursing and physician management to develop comprehensive plans for meeting the educational needs of the staff in the unit and carry out those plans to support high quality and excellence in patient care.
The Pediatric CTICU CNS will thrive in a state of the art Pediatric CTICU and will assist in overseeing growth of the staff, unit, and development of the pediatric ECMO program. The time is now to use your comprehensive clinical expertise to be an influential leader as the hospital expands our Pediatric Congenital Heart program!
