Upstate to hold open house for ED, OR nurses Aug. 6

SYRACUSE, N.Y.— Upstate University Hospital will hold an open house for registered nurses for its emergency room and operating rooms from 4 to 6 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 6.

Increases in the number of patients treated in the Emergency Department and throughout the hospital are among the reasons Upstate is hiring additional nurses.

Positions are open in at Upstate’s Downtown and Community campuses.

Jody Purdy, director of Nursing Recruitment, said Upstate is looking for nurses with acute care nursing experience.

The open house will include an on-the-spot job interviews, and tours of the Emergency Department, Operating Room suite, Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital as well as the hospital’s helipad.

“Upstate is a dynamic place, providing all levels of medical care and a wide array of experiences for our nurses,” Purdy said.

Among the attractive benefits for nurses, Purdy said is that Upstate pays tuition expenses for nurses who are interested in obtaining additional education, such as a bachelor’s or master’s degree. In addition, all nurses receive medical, dental and vision coverage.
