Temporary equivalent of this posting is available:
It is the intent of the Medical Center to hire permanent Registered Nurses into all vacant and newly posted positions requiring nursing licensure. Current Registered Nurses employed by the Medical Center may apply for permanent vacancy or newly-created position and shall be given preference in filling such vacancy on seniority basis, provided: (a) the Nurse is qualified to fill the vacant position, and (b) approval of the application will not adversely affect patient care.
If, during the seven (7) day posting period, there is no application for the permanent vacancy or newly-created position by any full-time, regular part-time, short-hour or casual Registered Nurses employed by the Medical Center, the Medical Center may fill the position from any source.
In order to provide consistent and competent patient care, it is the intent of the Medical Center to hire regular, short hour, and casual nurses into all open positions. It is not the intent of the Medical Center to use supplemental agency staffing to avoid terms of Union agreement. However this does not prevent the Medical Center from filling the vacancy on a temporary basis for a temporary period up to a maximum of ninety (90) days unless such temporary period is extended by mutual consent with the Union. Prior to extension, the Medical Center shall offer regular employment to travel nurse, pursuant to Medical Center's standard hiring procedures.
