Registered Nurse Orthopedics

Company: SCL Health
Location: Denver
Posted on: January 17, 2020

Job Description:


You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as an Orthopedic Registered Nurse.

Your compassion is tangible: patients feel it in the hand they hold. Families feel it in your prayers. Colleagues feel it in your support.

You know how to stay organized and move fast. You thrive in fast-paced environments and enjoy assisting patients in their post-surgical rehabilitation process.

Youre great at what you do, but you want to be part of something even greater. Because you believe that while individuals can be strong, the right team is invincible.


Our Orthopedic unit is a fast-paced unit where our RNs are skilled in the treatment of joint pain affecting the knee, hip, shoulder, ankle and wrist. We treat back pain and orthopedic conditions, including:

  • Arthritis osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Fractures, sprains and strains
  • Sports injuries
  • Tendonitis
  • Torn cartilage, ligaments and tendons
  • Traumatic injuries

    We always focus on putting our patients first, which is evident through our hourly rounding, bedside reports, and manageable nurse-to-patient ratios. We are proud to be an accredited Chest Pain Center, a Primary Stroke Center, and a private teaching hospital.

    Saint Joseph Hospital is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. Our 365-bed facility is one of the top-ranked hospitals in Denver, and has been awarded the highest national recognition possible for nursing excellence Magnet designation by the ANCC. We are proud to extend the mission of SCL Health by providing care for the poor, the vulnerable, our communities and each other. Our deep community roots date back to 1873, making us one of the oldest hospitals in Colorado.

    Benefits are one of the ways we encourage health for you and your family. Our generous package includes medical, dental and vision coverage. But health is more than a well-working body: it encompasses body, mind and social well-being. To that end, weve launched a Healthy Living program to address your holistic health. Healthy Living includes financial incentives, digital tools, tobacco cessation, classes, counseling and paid time off. We also offer financial wellness tools and retirement planning.


    Together well align mission and careers, values and workplace. Well honor each others dignity and surpass the standards we set. Well encourage joy, demand safety and take pride in our integrity.

    Well laugh at each others jokes (even the bad ones). Well hello and high five. Well celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.

    Were proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn.

    Your day.
