Registered Nurse - Medical

Mercy Medical Center, Dubuque, IA

* $5,000 Sign-on Bonus available for this Unit.*

The Medical/Oncology unit is a 36 bed unit with an average census of 25.  We specialize in giving chemotherapy, serve as the "stroke unit", harbor hemodialysis on the unit along with multiple diagnoses for patients over the age of 18.  Our patients often require complex care needs, thus we involve an interdisciplinary team to focus on the patients' outcomes.  We work closely with the physicians and team to provide patients and families with options to make sure the patient's needs are met on discharge.  Our unit, along with a director, utilizes a Clinical Lead nurse and charge RNs to support physicians, staff and patients, along with staff RNs and certified nursing assistants. 

We support a nursing ratio of one RN to 4 patients on days and evenings and at night the ratio changes to one RN to 5-6 patients.

 The Mercy registered nurse must hold an active license to practice nursing in the state of Iowa. A baccalaureate degree in nursing and certification by a nationally recognized nursing organization is preferred and strongly encouraged. An applicant must have a minimum of an associate’s degree in nursing.  The registered nurse continuously seeks opportunities to enhance his or her own professional nursing practice.  Membership in an appropriate professional nursing organization is recommended.

Mercy Medical Center promotes excellence in nursing practice and a thriving professional practice environment, as evidenced by our designation as a Magnet Hospital.  Consistent with the American Nurses Association’s Nursing Social Policy Statement (2010), we support the definition of professional nursing and the essential features of contemporary nursing practice including: 

  • Provision of a caring relationship that facilitates health and healing
  • Attention to the range of human experiences and responses to health, disease, and illness within the physical and social environments
  • Integration of objective data with knowledge gained from an appreciation of the patient’s or group’s subjective experience
  • Application of scientific knowledge to the processes of diagnosis and treatment through the use of judgment and critical thinking
  • Advancement of professional nursing knowledge through scholarly inquiry
  • Influence of social and public policy to promote social justice
