Find out about our academic nursing program.
UCSD GI Endoscopy/Special Procedures holds the distinction of being a 2009 ASGE Recognition Honoree and is part of the only academic medical center in San Diego. Everyday, our nurses exhibit enthusiasm and expertise as they provide the highest quality of nursing care to our valued patient population. Servicing outpatient and inpatient areas, our nursing staff experience variety in each patient’s unique situation and also through the different areas of the GI suite including intake, procedure, and recovery.
Our nurses come from a wide range of clinical background including transplant, women’s services, and critical care. Opportunities abound for teaching and expanding clinical knowledge through service on unit based and hospital wide committees. Our bi-annual GI nurses and associates conference is organized and executed by our nurses and staff. It has quickly become an anticipated event for hospital staff in our region.
As a nurse in our department you can anticipate training specific to both of our unique locations and customized to your experience level. A dedicated preceptor will guide you through this training period to ensure the best experience possible. An ideal candidate will have a background in an acute care setting, a team-focused work ethic, and sensitivity to cultural diversity. Communication and teaching skills are required as well as strong critical thinking skills and a desire to take on the responsibilities inherent to the procedural setting.
