PCU Nurses care for patients as they transition from critical care to home.
Progressive care unit (PCU) travel nurses are essential on the path to long-term health. As a PCU travel nurse, you care for patients who need close monitoring and frequent assessment. You use computer equipment to monitor vital information and detect any changes. With careful attention, you intervene in life-threatening or emergency situations.
Patients in a PCU receive a significant amount of complex medications, sometimes through an intravenous line that may need to be adjusted or titrated. Progressive care specialists must be able to manage and document medication administration particularly well. Sometimes PCU travel nurses are called step-down or telemetry nurses. In some facilities, PCU is also known as cardiac stepdown, medical stepdown, neuro stepdown, surgical stepdown and ER holding.
Talented PCU travel nurses are being contracted every day with GIFTED recruiters. Travelers often earn higher pay than staff nurses. At GIFTED, we prioritize finding the opportunities that work best for your career and family. Traveling progressive care unit nurses have the option to earn overtime (OT) or pick up per diem shifts in their area. Furthermore, GIFTED offers many benefits for their travel nurses, including full health, dental, and vision insurance from day one. We also offer licensure reimbursement and weekly or daily pay when applicable. We see the value nurses add to healthcare facilities and express that in every contract.
