Job Description:


MHealth Fairview is looking for a RN at St Joseph's Hospital in St Paul, MN. This position is 48 hours per two weeks, variable schedule with 8 hours shifts on the Night shift (11:00 PM-7:30 AM) with an every other weekend rotation and a holiday rotation. This position is eligible for full benefits.

Founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet in 1853, St. Joseph's Hospital in downtown St. Paul, MN is proud to hold the distinction as Minnesota's first hospital. Although much has changed in health care since the hospital's early days, the practice of providing high quality, compassionate care remains constant. From technology to education, family support and spirituality to community outreach, our commitment ensures you'll always receive high quality, compassionate care. St. Joseph's Hospital is a member of the University of Minnesota's Family Medicine and Community Health residency program and is Medicare certified.

About this position - Long Term Acute Care (LTAC)

This unit is Long Term Acute Care (LTAC) where all of our patients have had a complex illness or injury that requires hospital level care for an average of 25-30 days. Many of our patients are more acute than a typical Med/Surg floor, so this unit is a great place to gain expertise in managing patients with progressive care issues with varying levels of multi system impairment. Outside of an ICU setting, it is hard to get exposure to such a high concentration of acutely ill patients.
