We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced nurse to work as a Liver Care Post Transplant Nurse Coordinator.  The coordinator provides inpatient discharge teaching/coordination, as well as case management for post liver transplant patients (1300+). The majority of these patients are followed on an annual basis in post liver transplant clinics. The coordinator also must ensure that 750+ immuno-suppression drug levels are managed per month, plus triage patient symptom phone calls, EPIC Inbasket, eCare messages and multiple prescription refills.

As a teaching hospital and research center, we're deeply committed to the enhancement of care for our patients-as well as the professional growth of our staff. As a testament to this commitment, we're proud to be recognized with Magnet Hospital status by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.  In fact, we were the first hospital to receive this designation, and we continue to be the only hospital in the region with such status.  We're also consistently named one of the nation's best hospitals, as reported by U.S. News and World Report.  

Such national recognition attests to our commitment to high-quality care, and to the outstanding professionalism and skill that exists at UWMC.  As a registered nurse (RN), you can be a part of this highly skilled team, working within a culture that is both innovative and collaborative.  Here, you will work in tandem with physicians and other health care practitioners to provide superior, award-winning nursing care.  In short, you will not only follow best practice, you will create it!  

Position is full time, 8 hour days, Monday-Friday, and requires WA RN license, at least two years of current/recent med-surg or ICU nursing experience; experience with transplant patients and BSN preferred.

Committed to attracting and retaining a diverse staff, the University of Washington will honor your experiences, perspectives and unique identity. Together, our community strives to create and maintain working and learning environments that are inclusive, equitable and welcoming.
