Intermediate Care Nurse Jobs

Intermediate care nurses, also called progressive care nurses, are registered nurses who care for patients that require a higher level of care than is provided in a general medical-surgical unit, but don’t require the level of care received in an intensive care unit. Intermediate care units are often referred to as step-down units because patients are often “stepping down”, or transitioning, from the ICU until they’re stable enough to be moved to a med-surg unit or skilled long-term care facility.

The National Telemetry Association reports that demand in this nursing specialty is growing rapidly because progressive care units are relatively new and highly specialized. There is also a shortage of nurses pursuing certification in this field.

We currently have 1,142 matching Intermediate Care Nurse jobs.
