Cedars-Sinai Medical Center's Observation Unit has an opening for a Registered Nurse.

Since the new 23-bed Observation unit opened as a pilot program in March 2014, it has been an extraordinary success story. The unit has served both Observation patients and those being triaged into the unit from the Emergency Department, with a focus on patients with expected stay of 48 hours or less.

The unit expanded and in November 2016 moved to a larger 28-bed location. This is the ideal clinical environment for an Registered Nurse who wants to use their experience to help improve processes while serving as a patient advocate. Positions available for l2hrs shifts.

If you are a nursing professional who enjoys working in an environment in which nurses are empowered by their autonomy, consider this opportunity which will afford the potential for personal and professional growth in the future.
