About the Position: OR RN - Total Joint Replacement

As an OR Nurse, you will work alongside and assist doctors, surgeons, and other members of the surgical team to ensure patients receive the best possible care and outcome. During the surgery, you may be required to monitor the patient’s vital signs, maintain a sterile environment, manage bleeding, suture incisions, collect samples for labs, and assist during any complications.  Due to the intense nature of surgical procedures, an Operating Room Nurse must be a quick thinker and be able to remain calm under pressure. Reports to the Total Joint OR Facilitator (TJR) as well as the appropriate Director at each location for the TJR service line.

At Vail Valley Surgery Center, an OR Nurse may potentially take on the duties involved with Circulating or Scrubbing and will need to maintain continuous nursing vigilance throughout the procedure. As an Operating Room RN, you will have the opportunity to work with cutting-edge technology alongside world-class orthopedic surgeons and a dedicated team of surgical nurses in state-of-the-art facilities. Many of the RNs at VVSC are able to both scrub and circulate; we offer scrub training to qualified candidates.

This role is expected to travel across different locations within the Vail Health system to support total joint procedures in outpatient and inpatient settings and report to the Total Joint OR Facilitator as well as the appropriate Director at each location for the TJR service line.
