Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) Travel Nurse Jobs

PACU Travel Nurse Jobs

Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) nurses are integral to postoperative care. PACU nurses care for patients after surgery and must demonstrate advanced knowledge of anesthesiology. Common job duties include:

  • Candidates for PACU jobs require critical care skills to assess incision sites, monitor body temperature, and track other indicators of stability or complications.
  • It is important for RNs in the recovery room to quickly make critical patient assessments as the on-call doctor may be unavailable during an emergency.
  • Direct and delegate care to other team members in accordance with their education, credentials, and demonstrated competence.
  • Ideal candidates for post-anesthesia care units have natural abilities to think critically and histories of fast, accurate diagnoses.
  • Past experience in critical care and surgical nursing is a plus.
  • Perform other duties as assigned.
