Registered Nurse (RN) - Postpartum (Part-Time)

Company: Inova Health System
Location: Alexandria
Posted on: September 19, 2023

Job Description:

As a Registered Nurse, you will provide knowledgeable and caring clinical practice and care coordination through an understanding of patients, families, nurses and healthcare delivery teams. To help achieve our mission, you will consistently provide safe and therapeutic care in a holistic/systematic way while incorporating differences into the provision of care and conducting all patient care in a patient/family centered manner. Your ability to integrate knowledge, skills and experiences to meet the needs of patients and families throughout the continuum, to include patient and family education, is of vital importance. Communicating effectively and working cooperatively with others while having respect for and an understanding of other clinical disciplines is required. Your ability to determine processes for delivery of care from direct patient/family communication, technology and other healthcare team member collaboration is essential.
Inova Alexandria Hospital's Family Centered Care is a 35 bed unit supporting a Level 3 NICU.
A postpartum nurse assumes care for the mother/baby couplet shortly following delivery. The nurse monitors the mother frequently during her recovery period and the body's transition back to normalcy. The nurse monitors the baby's transitional period from intrauterine into the world. Supporting breastfeeding is a key component in the postpartum period for the couplet dyad. Maintaining pain control, educating on self-care and newborn care along with handling deviations from current plan of care are top priorities for the RN.
Inova Alexandria Hospital is the oldest continuously operating community hospital in Virginia. For more than 150 years, we have provided high quality medical care close to home for the communities we serve, earning us recognition for many "firsts" in patient care.
