Are you looking to engage with the excitement and pace of surgery? With over 14,000 patients annually, nurses in Perioperative Services at UF Health Jacksonville work in 28 licensed operating rooms in four locations across the organization. This department includes the trauma and robotics operating rooms, outpatient surgery and eye surgery.
The trauma operating room is one of the most reputable ORs in the state of Florida. Nurses have the opportunity to excel as a trauma operating room nurse or surgical technician while working at a high level of emergency care.
OR staff can be a part of cutting-edge technology in the robotics operating room. Nurses are able to develop skills in robotic surgical nursing and take pride in being part of the technology that lessens a patient’s length of stay and enhances recovery.
With two separate campuses offering a range of ambulatory surgical care, this nursing team has a strong focus on patients in need of sports medicine procedures, plastic surgery and minimally invasive surgery. This department offers nursing staff a fast-paced and patient-oriented environment.
UF Health Jacksonville also provides eye surgery to patients with history of glaucoma, macular degeneration, oculoplastic, retinal and cataract diseases, and performs corneal transplantation. This department has been ranked with highest level of staff engagement for past six years.
Nurses in Perioperative Services use patient tracking boards for throughput, an electronic decentralized scheduling system and a concierge philosophy with families in waiting rooms.
