Employment Status: Part-Time
Your Career. Made Better.

Barnes-Jewish Hospital at Washington University Medical Center is the largest hospital in Missouri and is ranked as one of the nation's top hospitals by U.S. News & World Report. Barnes-Jewish Hospital's staff is composed of full-time academic faculty and community physicians of Washington University School of Medicine, supported by a house staff of residents, interns, fellows and other medical professionals. Recognizing its excellence in nursing care, Barnes-Jewish Hospital was the first adult hospital in Missouri to be certified as a Magnet Hospital by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

The Neurocritical Care Unit (NNICU) at Barnes Jewish Hospital is a 20-bed level 1 center caring for complex neurological and neurosurgical emergencies requiring advanced interventions and comprehensive neurocritical care. The Joint Commission-certified comprehensive stroke center NNICU provides a full complement of advanced neuro-monitoring, medical therapies and neurosurgical interventions. In August 2019, Barnes Jewish Hospital will expand its neurocritical care unit by adding 24 beds. This unit will be equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and technology, including both a stationary and mobile CT scanners capable of performing advanced neurovascular imaging.

Our NNICU teams consist of neuro-intensivists, fellows, residents, acute care nurse practitioners, registered nurses, pharmacists, patient care technicians, respiratory therapists, physical therapists, case managers, and social workers. Working with the medical team, our NPs are engaged in patient rounds, case reviews, morbidity and mortality/performance improvement reviews as well as focused -professional practice in neurocritical care. Due to the acuity of patients receiving care in our Level I NCCU, a neurointensivist or an NNICU fellow provides on-site care 24/7.

Neurocritical care nursing is a specialty within critical care and requires an educational curriculum and competency assessment beyond general critical care concepts. Our nurses receive focused education and competency assessment for common neurocritical care concepts, monitoring, procedures and devices. This includes ENLS (Emergency Neurological Life Support), a program that outlines the key care priorities of 14 neurocritical care diagnoses in the first few hours of management. Nurse to patient ratios are typically 1:2 or 1:1, depending on acuity. Our nurses are fully engaged and an integral part of patient rounds.
