Please join our Cardiothoracic ICU Nurse Practitioner team at UCLA Health! UCan make a difference in patients’ lives!
The NP functions in an interdependent role by implementing the appropriate Standardized Procedures (SPs). By using the SPs the NP is able to change treatment regimen after observing signs and symptoms of illness, reactions to treatment, general behavior and physical condition and determines if they are abnormal findings (Ca Nursing Practice Act, subsection(b) of Section 2725). The NP will provide and coordinate the careof patients, provide patient/family education, promote safe continuity of care in the Cardiothoracic ICU. The NP also participates in interdisciplinary and clinical rounds, provides education and support, as well as makes appropriate referrals. Document services rendered.
