Job Description

About this unit :


6 South is a 22-bed acuity adaptable unit at Butterworth Hospital that is capable of managing both non ICU and ICU status patients admitted with advanced cardiopulmonary care needs.


6 South specializes in patients with advanced heart failure, pre or post heart or lung transplant, Left Ventricular Assist devices, Intra-Aortic Balloon Pumps, and respiratory failure necessitating Bipap, Hi-Flo Nasal Cannula, or Ventilator support via tracheostomy.


Individuals are drawn to 6 South as it is a unique environment that allows new grad nurses the opportunity to build a strong foundation in time management and develop their critical thinking skills in non-ICU assignments, while also providing an introduction into ICU level of care.


The culture on 6 South is well known for its teamwork and consists of a healthy mix of Registered Nurse and Nurse Techs with anywhere from 1-25 years of experience.


Summary of Responsibilities


Nurse Technicians act as a team member in the delivery of quality patient care under the supervision of a Registered Nurse (RN).

Essential Functions :



  • Collects and reports physiological, psychological, sociocultural and spiritual needs of patients and families in coordination with and as delineated by the RN or Provider.

  • Ensures that required documentation is performed in an accurate and timely manner.

  • Provides direct patient care under the direction of the RN or Provider, consistent with clinical policies and procedures, and department standard work.

  • Demonstrates a high standard of moral and ethical behavior. Advocates for privacy, confidentiality and security of patient, staff and organization data.


Orientation and Training


The role will begin with 2 days of training in a simulation center and 1 day of EPIC training with our Nurse Educators.These are prescheduled classes from 8 am to 4 : 30 pm.


These in person classes will typically fall on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday week 1 of employment.Because these classes are prescheduled, you must attend all full days, and we cannot reschedule any of the required dates if you cannot attend.


Attendance is compensated, as it is required for compliance. The remainder of your training is done on your unit, during the hours of the position you accepted and is also compensated.


In addition, a Nurse Technician is often floated to other departments of higher need based with similar training. If they are outside of a unit with their similar training (like a med-surg NT going to ICU or HDVCH) they would typically just be acting as a safety attendant.


But all typical units they are floated to would have very similar expectations and training.
