The STAT Nurse is a highly-skilled licensed practitioner trained to respond and support bedside nurses and practitioners when urgent and emergent situations arise. The STAT nurse is a resource who exercises independent nursing judgment in managing the care of patients with complex health problem(s) with a specific focus in supporting Cardiac Catheterization and Interventional Radiology procedures, as well as staff nurses throughout the organization in managing urgent and emergent situations. The STAT nurse makes independent judgments/decisions and takes action regarding a wide range of complex patient care issues that requires high-level critical thinking, analysis, and actions within the scope of nursing practice. This role is differentiated from other nursing related roles in that the STAT nurse does not assume a full patient assignment but rather serves in a roving role addressing multiple needs and situations as they arise throughout the shift.
