This is for the outpatient oncology infusion center.
We see approx. 25-35 patients per day for chemotherapy infusions, blood transfusions and injections. We participate in research study infusions as well. We see non oncology patients for infusion. 20% of this job would be patient care, 80% would be on leadership. The infusion center is open 7-5 Monday through Friday. They occasionally stay late as patient need dictates. We also have weekend hours for antibiotics and fluids as needed. There are 8 nurses (including prn) in the infusion center as well as two secretaries.
The ideal candidate will have oncology/chemotherapy experience, be a high performer with leadership potential. I would consider a non experienced team member who is a strong charge nurse who desires to take the next step into leadership.
