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.

The procedural RN, in the endoscopy suite, works in the procedure room alongside of the MD performing tasks and maneuvers as delegated to them from the Endoscopist. This hands-on position requires great technical skills as well as a vast knowledge of anatomy and physiology. The procedural RN plays a key role in collaborating with the MD and other members of the health care team to provide the best care possible to the patients. Procedural RNs set up a room according to procedure type, MD preference and therapies or diagnostics that are ordered for the procedure. This role includes assisting the MD with equipment during the endoscopy procedure for ERCP, EUS and complex cases. Medical documentation, medication administration and review of the patient’s history are all performed by the procedural RN. This role also includes time on our emergency bedside team who can be activated 24/7 to perform lifesaving endoscopies anywhere in the hospital.

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 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 Clinic Nursing Professional Practice Model, which includes accountability for planning, implementing, evaluating and communicating all phases of nursing care for assigned patients. 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. The RN possesses excellent communication skills; is skillful in mentoring and teaching; and may participate on committees or projects. A subset of employees may be required to drive their personal vehicle as a part of the responsibility of their role.
