About the Position

As the Assistant Director of Nursing (ADON) for the Joint Center, you will be responsible for ensuring the smooth and efficient operation of the nursing staff for the Center. This may involve planning and evaluating nursing systems, rotations, and methods to ensure our patients are receiving optimal care. You will report directly to the Director of the Joint Center concerning patients, providers, and the nursing staff. At times, you may be needed to direct staff meetings, conduct employee evaluations, as well as hire and train new staff. Since you are still a Registered Nurse, you will be needed to make supervisory rounds throughout the Joint Center and interact with patients. 

About the Joint Center

The Joint Center is an inpatient service of GCRMC in conjunction with Champion Orthopaedics available 24/7. Our mission is to provide high-quality, top-service care to orthopedic patients in New Mexico and the surrounding states. To succeed, we have started working towards DNV accreditation and to become a BCBS Distinction Center. We treat a full range of orthopedic problems involving trauma, sports injuries, and joint reconstruction. Additionally, our Joint Center is unique in that we use a shared-governance model of nursing and healthcare so that membership participation is critical.
