Cox Health Adds New Nursing Position: Support RNs


As the need for nurses grows, CoxHealth has added a new nursing position.  Support RNs will assist floor nurses in managing the care of medical and surgical patients, the Springfield-based health system said in a news release.

Celeste Cramer, system director of recruitment and retention at CoxHealth, said they’re looking for people who want to make a difference, especially as COVID hospitalizations are rising, and they can do so on a flexible schedule.

Duties include helping other nurses assess patient conditions, administer medications, change dressings, monitor vital signs, keep records and provide patients and families with support and education.

Positions are available at all of CoxHealth's hospital campuses in Springfield, Branson, Monett and Lamar.
