GCRMC is looking for an Assistant Director of Nursing for our Med/Surg Unit

Shift: 7:30am - 4:30pm

Lyndsey Gonzalez, Director of Med/Surg, discusses why GCRMC is such a great place to work

About the Position

As the Assistant Director of Nursing (ADON) for the Medical-Surgical Unit, you will be responsible for ensuring the smooth and efficient operation of the nursing staff for the Unit. 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 Med/Surg 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 unit and interact with patients. 

About the Med/Surg Unit

The Med/Surg Unit is just one of our five in-patient departments at Gerald Champion Regional Medical Center, but we do not have designated private rooms for this unit, unlike the other four. We average about 50 patients per day between adults and children with a wide variety of medical issues or those that are recovering from surgery.
