Job Description

New Graduate RN needed for Transplant Acute Care Unit. This position is 36 hours/week, with day/night and weekend rotation, with flexible self-scheduling.  It also qualifies for an extensive benefit package. 

The Transplant Acute Care Unit is a 15-bed unit dedicated to caring for patients who require abdominal organ transplantation. Each year, we perform over 125 kidney, pancreas, and liver transplants. Care is also provided to medicine patients awaiting transplantation – giving our staff the rare opportunity to care for patients through every step of the journey from pre-transplantation to post-transplantation and recovery.

Our transplant program is certified by the American Society of Transplant Surgeons and is one of the most accomplished and dedicated transplant teams in the region. We strive to improve clinical outcomes through education, research, and clinical medicine.

In addition to abdominal transplant, we partner in the care of surgical urology patients. Our team leads North Carolina in robotic surgery and cancer care. We also care for high-risk plastic surgery patients requiring reconstructive grafts and surgery related to tissue injuries. These patients have complex wound management needs, which our expert staff manages.

Transplant 5 West Strengths: Our nursing staff works exceptionally well with the interdisciplinary team to provide high-quality and compassionate care to our patients.
