This crosstrain position gives an RN the opportunity to become competent in both Surgical Cardiovascular and Critical Care.

Surgical Cardiovascular:

This unit is comprised of a 44-bed unit and additional 11-bed overflow unit with telemetry capabilities for surgical patients. The unit provides care to a variety of patient populations, most frequently being surgical related. The unit works closely with several different surgeon groups and patients including general surgery, vascular surgery, plastic surgery, OB-GYN surgery, bariatric surgery, and trauma-related surgery. The RN working on this unit learns to manage the complex needs of a number of different surgical procedures, in addition to the medical history/needs of patients. This diversity creates an excellent opportunity to learn and establish a strong critical thinking and time management skill set.

The unit works closely with other departments such PACU and ICU as patients transition from these departments to 2000. The technical, hands-on skills of nursing are used every day on the unit, as most patients come with a number of tubes, lines, drains, and/or wound cares/dressing changes. = This combination creates a challenging, fast-paced environment to work in, and provides an opportunity for learning, growth, and a strong foundation for any nursing career.

Critical Care:

At Sanford Medical Center, the care of critically-ill adult patients occurs in three separate critical care

units that are covered by the same nursing staff. Critical Care 2000 is a 12-bed pulmonary/medical

critical care unit. Critical Care 3000 is a 15-bed trauma, surgical and neurocritical care unit. Critical

Care 2800 is a 12-bed acuity adaptable unit for cardiothoracic and vascular surgery patients.

Acuity adaptable beds allow patients to receive care at all acuity levels in one environment. For

example, a post-coronary bypass patient can recover after the operation, receive critical care, transition to telemetry status, and then be discharged all in one room. The staff in this area is comprised of a mixed team of critical care nurses and surgical nurses. Surgical and pulmonary intensivists also work collaboratively with physicians and this department to facilitate all interdisciplinary needs.

The units are staffed 24/7 with in-house intensivist services and daily coverage by three

specialty services: pulmonary, surgical and neurocritical care. The staff works closely

with the intensivist, surgical critical care team and neurocritical care team as well as

other members of the interdisciplinary team to provide goal-directed care.
