Oregon Health & Science University RN, General Surgery / Colorectal, Digestive Health Center, FT, Days in Portland, Oregon

The OHSU Digestive Health Center (DHC) is a multi-disciplinary center offering services in the ambulatory setting for specialty surgical services, gastroenterology, hepatology, bariatrics and nutrition. A key program within the DHC is the colorectal surgery section. This program is a close team that includes MD, APP (currently recruiting), RN, MA, and schedulers that work together to provide excellent quality care for these complex patients. The patient experience with the program begins with their initial appointment and can include clinic visits, procedures, surgery, and follow-up care.

The Patient Care Coordinator (RN) will provide care coordination, assessment and triage, medication management and clinical support to the colorectal surgeons in the ambulatory setting. Colorectal surgery is a specialized field where the team nurse gets to know many of the patients closely and plays a key role in patient education and support. The nurse will become familiar over time with the various treatment options and ongoing complex care. The nurse will also perform medical record review, follow developed protocols, determine appropriate patient scheduling, assist with monitoring diagnostic results and patient care progress/processes as requested by providers, and participate in quality reviews. The nurse will work alongside a team of RN care coordinators within the DHC.
