Charge Nurse - Shift Specialty Coordinator - RN - West Pines

SCL Health System Denver, CO

Job Description

Charge Nurse - Shift Specialty Coordinator - RN - West Pines-18000905 




You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a Charge Nurse/ Shift Specialty Coordinator (SSC).


Your compassion is tangible: whether your patient is 18 or 85, they feel it in the hand they hold. Families feel it in your prayers. Colleagues feel it in your support.


You know when to move quickly. When to sit quietly. When to laugh loudly.


You're great at what you do, but you want to be part of something even greater. Because you believe that while individuals can be strong, the right team is invincible.




West Pines Behavioral Health at Lutheran Medical Center is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. Our tight knit team specializes in helping adults ages 18 and older with psychiatric or addiction concerns.


Benefits are one of the ways we encourage health for you and your family. Our generous package includes medical, dental and vision coverage. But health is more than a well-working body: it encompasses body, mind and social well-being. To that end, we've launched a Healthy Living program to address your holistic health. Healthy Living includes financial incentives, digital tools, tobacco cessation, classes, counseling and paid time off. We also offer financial wellness tools and retirement planning.




Together we'll align mission and careers, values and workplace. We'll encourage joy and take pride in our integrity.


We'll laugh at each other's jokes (even the bad ones). We'll hello and high five. We'll celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.


We're proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn.


Your day.


As a Charge Nurse/SSC you need to know how to:


·        Provide shift leadership and serve as the shift clinical resource.

·        Assist with the management of staffing resources and patients.

·        Supervise, provide and coordinate patient care activities and maintain quality of care in accordance with policies and procedures.


Your experience.


We hire people, not resumes. But we also expect excellence, which is why we require:


·        ASN from an accredited program

·        BSN from an accredited program within 4 years of your hire

·        Current Colorado RN license

·        Current BLS certification

·        Three years nursing experience required

·        Two years nursing leadership experience preferred


Your next move.


Now that you know more about being a Charge Nurse/ Shift Specialty Coordinator ­ on our team we hope you'll join us. At SCL Health you'll reaffirm every day how much you love this work, and why you were called to it in the first place.
