This unit has also received the Beacon Award for Excellence designated by the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN).  The AACN created the Beacon designation to recognize individual units that have set a path to excellence in an effort to highlight critical care units that distinguish themselves in every facet of patient care.  Recipients of a Beacon designation demonstrate excellence in sustained unit performance and patient outcomes.  

 

This is a per diem, at will, position requiring the ability to work at least one 12 hour shift every two weeks and one summer, and one winter holiday each year.  There are no benefits associated with this position.  Must be able to attend one week of hospital orientation.
