Are you a high-performing nurse looking for a new way to enhance your career? We have an exciting opportunity for a Post Anesthesia Care Unit travel nurse in Tacoma Washington.

Post Anesthesia Care Unit nurses are an integral part of the post-operative care unit. PACU travel nurses care for post-operative patients and must demonstrate advanced knowledge of anesthesiology. The PACU nurse is responsible for waking and monitoring patients in post-op. PACU RNs must have the ability to assess incision sites, monitor body temperature, and evaluate other indicators of stability or complications.

Traveling nurses enjoy working in Tacoma Washington because it provides an excellent opportunity to expand their skill set and experience a unique and exciting destination. Choose a travel job in Washington, and you\'ll find yourself in the heart of the Pacific Northwest, surrounded by lush forests and national parks. Mountain climbing, hiking, and kayaking are just a few of the Washington state recreational opportunities to be found here.

Currently I'm on my third assignment with American Traveler and I must say I am very please with my recruiter Michele R. and American Traveler as a whole. Michele R. is AWESOME!......she is very professional and attentive to what I'm looking for with each assignment selection.
