Love your location
Finding a nursing job you love can be hard. Finding a city you love can be even harder. That’s why we want to invite you to join us in a place you can have both.
Trussville, Alabama is nicknamed “The Gateway to Happy Living”. It’s a city where many younger families are relocating. Home buyers in this suburb of Birmingham will find a range of homes from large single-family houses on suburban streets to homes on private wooded lots. Trussville’s bustling Main Street is full of dining and shopping for residents to enjoy. Residents can grab a bite to eat at Cafe on Main or Golden Rule Barbecue. They can shop locally at specialty stores like Cahaba Cycles and the Trussville Antique Mall.
Trussville residents are just about a 20-minute drive away from the shopping, dining, and nightlife in downtown Birmingham too. In 2005, Trussville was named the 56th Most Livable City in the USA by CNN Money for its great schools, thriving job market, and safe streets. It also has lovingly been called “Mayberry” for its community feeling of knowing your neighbors and people sharing the same goal for their hometown with wonderful churches, schools and its more than 75 restaurants to enjoy.
What you will do
St. Vincent’s East is licensed for 362 beds and is located just 20 minutes from downtown. It sits between Irondale and Trussville, AL. It is a general medical and surgical facility that offers a variety of programs and services to fit individual, corporate, and community needs. It is the second largest Ascension hospital in the Birmingham area. It is situated on a hill overlooking the beautiful community of Trussville, AL. This hospital has a suburban feel which appeals to those outlying communities that prefer not to have to drive downtown.
St. Vincent’s East provides all the service lines that our downtown hospital provides except for Birth Suites and NICU which is exclusive to our downtown location. It is the home for our only Behavioral Health service line and offers a level III Emergency Department.
Working as a Ortho Nurse, you will join an interdisciplinary team, where doctors, nurses, therapists and other experts work together to form individualized care plans for our patients and residents! You will play a vital role by ensuring patients receive timely and appropriate care and taking initiative on opportunities to educate and provide care instructions.
What you will need
Experienced nurses - we have a place for you. Our contract nurses will be expected to hit the ground running. As such, we do require 2 years’ experience in the desired specialty area.
