Why Mayo Clinic
The Sparta Med Surg Department seeks motivated and autonomous nursing staff to join our dynamic team. The department cares for a wide range of patients of all ages. Services include observation, inpatient, complex wound care, scheduled outpatients for injections, infusions, and chemo pump disconnects. Hospice and respite care are also offered.
Transitional Care Unit (TCU) is an integrated program on the unit, providing skilled nursing care to complicated medical and surgical patients who require additional healing time, are not able to return home, and are not eligible for nursing home placement due to the complexity of their care, lack of funding and/or guardianship issues. Goal of the program is to achieve a state of wellness such that the patient can return to their previous living arrangement or better.
Position description
We desire to create and support an organizational culture where all employees are mission-driven, embody organizational values, and practice relationship based care. We adhere to the primary value "the needs of the patient come first." The daily actions of the staff demonstrate the vision and values of the organization. The registered nurse (RN) is accountable for the coordination of nursing care, including direct patient care, patient/family education and transitions of care. The RN supports professional nursing practice across practice settings and across the continuum of care to meet the needs of the patient and family. The RN will function within the Mayo Nursing Care Model, which includes accountability for planning, implementing, evaluating and communicating all phases of nursing care for assigned patients. The American Nurses Association (ANA) Scope and Standards of Practice provide a basis for the practice of the RN. The RN provides leadership through activities such as preceptor role, informal leadership roles, and quality improvement efforts. The RN delegates patient care according to skill level, experience, patient acuity, fiscal accountability, and adequacy of resources. The RN possesses excellent communication skills; is skillful in mentoring and teaching; and may participate on committees or projects.

  • Don't Be Fooled

    The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
