In the supplemental nurse role, the nurse will supplement regular nurse staffing by providing vaccinations in the Pediatric Specialty Outpatient Clinic during influenza season. This nurse role is time limited to influenza season which we anticipate would be October through March, but may slow down by February. Supplemental hours will be worked during this time. Orientation and training provided annually prior to the start of influenza season. Orientation to the role will begin in September depending on RN experience. Expectations are that employees in this role are available to work scheduled shifts during the week. Job requirements may be subject to change as the Pediatric Family Influenza Program strives to meet the needs of patients and families. Flu clinic orientation will begin in September. New nursing staff to Mayo will be required to attend central nursing orientation (full-time) which would be in August.
The registered nurse (RN) is accountable for the coordination of nursing care, including direct patient care, patient/family education and transitions of care. The RN supports professional nursing practice across practice settings and across the continuum of care to meet the needs of the patient and family. The RN will function within the Mayo Clinic Nursing Professional Practice Model, which includes accountability for planning, implementing, evaluating and communicating all phases of nursing care for assigned patients. The ANA Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice provide a basis for the practice of the RN. The RN provides leadership through activities such as preceptor role, informal leadership roles, and quality improvement efforts. The RN delegates patient care according to skill level, experience, patient acuity, fiscal accountability, and adequacy of resources. The RN possesses excellent communication skills; is skillful in mentoring and teaching; and may participate on committees or projects.
