Position description
The Ambulatory Care Registered Nurse (RN) is accountable for the delivery of direct patient care including patient education in the outpatient setting.

The RN working in the GI Endoscopy practice on Alfred Main provides care for adult patients. RN’s can function in one of two areas, Procedural or Intake/Recovery. RNs may be expected to cross-cover if patient needs dictate.

RNs working in Intake are responsible for completing a focused history and patient assessment prior to their endoscopy procedure. In this capacity, RNs will provide patient education for endoscopic procedures; review the medical history, including the current medication list and allergies to ensure the patient is able to proceed with their scheduled endoscopy procedure. In recovery, RNs are responsible for monitoring patients post-sedation. In this capacity, RNs will continue physiologic monitoring until patient meets discharge criteria. Intake and Recovery RNs also provide assistance in the endoscopy suite and provide assistance to the physician and procedural team caring for the patient. These tasks may include, but are not limited to, room set up pre-procedure, hands on assistance to the MD performing the procedure as delegated, medical documentation of supplies, procedure, and specimens, medication administration, reviewing the history. If moderate sedation is needed in procedure, the RN will also be responsible for sedation of the patient. The RN plays a key role in collaboration with the MD and other members of the healthcare team to provide the best care possible to the patients.

This environment is fast-paced, highly unpredictable and requires extreme attention to detail. The role requires expert critical thinking, attention to detail, time management, multi-tasking and the ability to function autonomously in an unpredictable environment. The ability to comfortably manage multiple computer applications is essential.

All RNs are trained to interpret ECG rhythms and will be expected to attain ACLS certification within their first 3-6 months of employment.

The ANA Nursing: 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.
