Description

St. David’s HealthCare is implementing a new pay range for full-time and part-time unit-based bedside nurses, non-exempt frontline nurse leaders and to a host of non-Nursing roles.  Apply today to learn more!


Our unit is a Med Surg Oncology unit.  We have about 75% post op pts who have surgery for some type of cancer, typically GI, GU,  or GYN.  We have the chemo certified nurses as well so get oncology pts needing inpatient chemo.  The surgical patients are all those who undergo the ESR surgery-so don’t stay too long in the hospital.  Typical stay is 1-3 days, which makes it a very fast paced unit.  On a typical day, on dayshift, we can discharge and re-admit an average of 10-15 patients. 


St. David's North Austin Medical Center, which is part of St. David’s HealthCare, is a 425-bed multi-specialty, acute care facility dedicated to the highest level of women’s health services, including maternity and newborn care with Level I, II and III nurseries at the adjacent St. David’s Women’s Center of Texas. The facility also features a 24-hour emergency department, the Texas Institute for Robotic Surgery, the Bariatric Center, Heart and Vascular Center, neurology and neurosurgery, a kidney transplant program, inpatient and outpatient surgery and acute inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation, among many others. St. David’s North Austin Medical Center is also home to St. David’s Children’s Hospital. St. David’s Surgical Hospital, which opened in October 2016, is a campus of St. David’s North Austin Medical Center.


We offer you an excellent total compensation package, including competitive salary, excellent benefit package and growth opportunities. We believe in our team and your ability to do excellent work with us. Your benefits include 401k, PTO medical, dental, flex spending, life, disability, tuition reimbursement, employee discount program, employee stock purchase program, and student loan repayment. We would love to talk to you about this fantastic opportunity.
