Job Description:

Overview

Clinic nurses at MercyOne Des Moines, now part of CommonSpirit Health formed between Catholic Health Initiative and Dignity Health, aid patients from the moment they enter the clinic by collecting patient information, supporting patient evaluation, administering treatments and medications as needed, and educating patients.  Nurses are among the most critical and important professionals in the healthcare world. It is the nurse who works directly with patients to ensure their needs are being carefully met with every interaction. 

Every day you must have the patient as your number one focus as you work to coordinate compassionate patient care.

To thrive in this role you must be able to think on your feet and remain calm in stressful situations so you can provide emotional support to patients and clinical support to physicians.

 


Responsibilities

As a clinic nurse, you communicate with patients and their caregivers, acting as a "clinical concierge" throughout their entire clinic experience to ensure a positive experience.

 

Clinic nurses work closely with patients throughout the intake process to help doctors develop treatment plans and strategies. The clinic nurse asks patients questions about current symptoms, medical histories, and medications to provide doctors with a complete understanding of a patient’s current medical needs and background.

 

Many of a clinic nurse’s duties involve providing direct support and assistance for the facility’s doctors. A clinic nurse may prepare equipment or other instruments for a doctor or assist with procedures during a patient’s stay. This aspect of the role requires a clinic nurse to rapidly shift between tasks and duties depending on where doctors need the most assistance.
