Providence Health & Services RN - Cardiac Rehab Readmissions Coordinator in Medford, Oregon


Providence is calling a Registered Nurse - Cardiac Rehab Coordinator to Providence Medford Medical Center in Medford, OR.

This position needs 5 years of cardiology/critical care

experience. The experience can be a mix of CCU, CVICU, ICU, ED, and Case

Management/Cardiology Office. I do want some ICU experience as assessment and

working off of protocols will be key requirements. The other ask is education

experience. They will be educating physicians, patients, staffs, and our

community. Presentations, community involvement, physician relationship

building, case management, and collaboration with C-Suite will be required.

On the COPD side, a working knowledge of the disease process

would be needed. We will train the right person on the COPD side. Very few RNs

are going to have detail pulmonary experience. That is more the range of

(R)RTs. The ICU and education requirements above will provide the necessary

base and Dr. Bradford should be able to help with this knowledge building.

In this position, you will:

  • Be in a multi-faceted position providing comprehensive services to patients throughout the continuum of care.

  • Be responsible for the seamless throughput of our heart failure, AMI, and pulmonary patients that are at high risk for readmissions and to optimize the care of our high-risk patients to best practice guidelines.
