Summary This Registered Nurse position is located on a unique
unit that is really two subspecialties in one - TCU/RCU. The TCU
(Transitional Care Unit) cares primarily for graduates of the
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) whose caregivers will be taking
them home with tracheostomies (many on ventilators). The RCU
(Rehabilitative Care Unit) provides collaborative team care to
children with traumatic brain injuries, near drownings, strokes and
other diseases, disorders or injuries involving loss of function.
The goal of the team is to maximize the return of function to these
amazingly resilient children and support their caregivers on the
journey. TCU/RCU offers an opportunity to develop relationships
with patients and their caregivers since some have extended stays.
Both TCU and RCU provide opportunities for education and teaching
as caregivers learn to care for their child with medically complex
needs. This is a unit where interdisciplinary team work is
essential as you work together with RTs, PTs, OTs, physicians,
social work, case management, nurse practitioners/physician
assistants, etc. to care for these often complex children as you
plan for their transition to their home environments.
