Job Description

This is a senior Registered Professional Nurse (RN12) position which requires advanced clinical decision making skills and judgment.

It is the RN 12 who determines the need for and timeliness of an appropriate referral to the physician. S/He is the only health care professional expected to independently perform the full range of duties inside of the correctional setting. In any and all settings, the RN 12 is expected to initiate and sustain life-saving care and measures as appropriate, as well as perform the full range of clinical nursing duties. The complexity of the work exceeds written, established methods and procedures often available, and therefore, the RN12 is expected to exercise considerable independent judgment in selecting the most appropriate course of action. The RN12 works as an emergency clinic nurse and as an ambulatory clinic nurse. This position is located 100% within the secure perimeter of a correctional facility and is a drug and alcohol test designated position.
