SCHEDULE: PRN/Per Diem
We are looking for a Registered Nurse to join the Wound Healing Center at Chippenham Hospital. The Registered Nurse in the Wound Healing Center will typically work 8-hour shifts, Monday-Friday, with no weekend or holiday requirements.
As one of the largest facilities in the nation’s largest hospital system (HCA), Chippenham Hospital provides the full scope of healthcare services. With 466 beds, we specialize in heart care at the Levinson Heart Hospital and emotional and mental health services through the Tucker Pavilion. Our ER is also a state-authorized Level II trauma center and we offer Central Virginia’s only Pediatric ER staffed 24/7 by pediatric-trained ER nurse and physician specialists.
The Wound Healing Center at Chippenham Hospital has under its umbrella two departments, Outpatient and Inpatient. Outpatient is comprised of outpatient visits with oversight from physicians. We have two hyperbaric chambers. Within Inpatient we do consults generated by physicians and/or nurses, and we see patients with wounds, ostomy and incontinence.
