Registered Nurse - RN - Adult Observation

SCL Health System Denver, CO

Job Description

Registered Nurse - RN - Adult Observation-18001711 


You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a Registered Nurse RN Adult Observation.


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.




Lutheran Medical Center is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. Our 249-bed community-based hospital provides comprehensive, specialty care to the poor, the vulnerable, our communities and each other. Dating back to 1905, we are proud of the rich history and inspiring mission our hospital has embodied for over 110 years.


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 honor each other's dignity and surpass the standards we set. We'll encourage joy, demand safety 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. And instead of placing blame we'll learn and grow together.
