Description

BMT Clinic

Location: Anschutz - Medical Campus

Work Schedule: 1.0/80hrs pp - Full Time - Days

  • Minimum Experience: 2 years of nursing experience. Preferred: Acute care and 1 year Case Management experience.

The Blood Disorders Center at the University of Colorado Hospital is transforming health care for our malignant blood cancer and general hematology patients by not only providing exemplary patient-centered care but also through world-class clinical research trials and our revolutionary partnership with the CU School of Medicine in the development of the CARE Innovation Center, a comprehensive service that brings together health care and leading industry and start-up partners. We are proud to be the only hospital in Colorado with five consecutive Magnet designations and were recently ranked as the #1 Hospital in the State of Colorado by US News and World Report for the 11th year in a row. We are also ranked as the #1 Employer in the State of Colorado by Forbes.

The Blood Disorders Center serves patients with Lymphoma, Leukemia, MDS, and Multiple Myeloma, as well as rare blood disorders such as Castleman’s Disease, Hairy Cell Leukemia and Langerhans. Some of these patients will proceed to either an Autologous or Allogeneic Bone Marrow Transplant or CAR-T Cell Therapy. We also see patients with Myeloproliferative Neoplasms such as Polycythemia Vera, Myelofibrosis and Essential Thrombocytosis as well as other non-malignant blood disorders, including anemia, Sickle Cell Disease, and Thalassemia. Oftentimes, a patient may begin with a non-malignant diagnosis and start out in our General Hematology Clinic and then unfortunately have the disease progress to a malignancy and the patient will transfer over to our Malignant Clinic. Our Malignant Clinic and General Hematology Clinic work together very closely.

The Clinic RN position is responsible for managing care coordination for our patients by taking on the role of navigator, educator, and advocate as well as providing direct and indirect patient care throughout each patient’s journey from diagnosis to survivorship. This person will need to be comfortable working with a significant level of autonomy, working independently but being supported by a fantastic team of physicians, fellow nurses, intake and access coordinators, pharmacists and advanced practice practitioners all working toward the same goal of delivering outstanding patient care. This person will collaborate as needed across multiple disciplines to coordinate patient care, including managing external and internal referrals, biopsies, scans, follow-up appointments and supportive oncology resources such as social work, psychology and dietary consults.

This role will need to effectively delegate patient care to ancillary personnel and may precept student nurses and new hires. This job requires critical thinking skills, decisive judgment and the ability to work well in teams. This is a fast-paced clinic with patients presenting in all stages of acuity. While some of the work will involve direct patient care, the majority of this role involves working on a computer, interacting with patients electronically or over the telephone.
