Duties will include patient education, and acting as both circulating nurse and scrub nurse.
We share responsibilities, and will provide opportunities for leadership, commensurate with your experience and skill set.
In this role you will work closely with the neurosurgical team members. You and your team members will develop and enhance significant specialized skills that can best be honed in a specialized team like ours.
Your duties as a neurosurgical nurse may include meeting with patients and their families prior to surgery to explain the procedure that will so greatly affect them/their loved ones. You will supervise room setup including getting the high-tech equipment ready for the surgeon to use during the procedure.
At times you will scrub in, actively assisting in the surgery itself. At other times you will run the room as a circulating nurse making sure that everything is prepared for the particular procedure being performed.
