Suburban Hospital is part of the prestigious Johns Hopkins Health System that employs more than 20,000 people. Upon joining Johns Hopkins, you become part of a diverse organization dedicated to its patients, their families, and the community we serve, as well as to our employees. Johns Hopkins career opportunities are available in academic and community hospital settings, home care services, physician practices, international affiliate locations, and the health insurance industry.

We provide a competitive total compensation package, are located just outside of the D.C metro area, and offer exciting career opportunities in a caring environment that recognizes individual talent, ability and contribution.

The Registered Nurse / RN will work within our Clinical Decision Unit, a 20 bed observation unit that works closely with the Emergency Department's 32 bed unit. The CDU provides an alternative to discharge or hospital inpatient admission for the emergency department patient who may benefit from an extended observation period (generally less than 24 hours). Patients of all age ranges who are not ill enough to warrant immediate inpatient hospital admission but are also not well enough to return to their place of residence may need additional monitoring, diagnostic evaluation, and/or treatment in an observation unit/CDU prior to disposition.

The Nurse Clinician / RN is responsible for independently planning, coordinating, and directing those activities essential to the provision of quality nursing care for assigned patients; coordinating the medical plan provided by support service departments relating to the assigned patients; identifying and implementing nursing interventions and evaluates results; and demonstrating developing leadership qualities.
