Are you looking for an exciting career with Stanford Health Care located in beautiful Northern California (Palo Alto)? This is an opportunity to join a world-class organization in Radiation Oncology and Radiation Oncology/ Neurosurgery.
The Nurse Coordinator is a Registered Nurse (RN) that will provide assistance in planning, coordinating, and delivering patient care for selected patient populations across the continuum of care using the nursing process, ensuring compliance with physician orders and established policies and procedures. He/she will be patient facing for assessments and education.

The Radiation Oncology/ Neurosurgery Nurse Coordinator supports coordination of care, patient education and assessment for our neuro-oncology patient population in radiation oncology and neurosurgery. Our physicians follow patients from new patient consult through treatment and return visits, sometimes for years. You will meet a fascinating mix of patients with malignant and benign tumors, AVMs (arteriovenous malformations), and trigeminal neuralgia for both adult and pediatric populations in ambulatory clinic and radiation treatment areas. In caring for our neuro-oncology and neurosurgery patient population, our neurosurgeons and radiation oncologists work closely together in combined clinics to facilitate coordination of care.
Our physicians frequently use the latest technology in radiation therapy, the CyberKnife. CyberKnife was invented at Stanford Health Care and has since spread around the world. Our CyberKnife team is proud of its high patient, high employee engagement scores, smooth workflows and great team spirit. We are looking for a team player with outstanding communication skills, compassion, and attention to detail. You will need to show self-motivation and drive to follow through on care coordination in the interest of our patients.
