Job Details

Overview

Dignity Health’s Mercy Gilbert Medical Center is nationally known for our holistic approach to medicine, and here, you are a part of a “golden thread” of compassionate care that connects staff and patients. While walking through the Healing Garden–with it’s intertwined pathways, garden areas and fountains–you’re reminded of our dedication to honoring the whole person. Embracing total well-being, then seeing patients and their loved ones respond positively, is personally rewarding to you.

As our Labor & Delivery Nurse at Mercy Gilbert Medical Center now part of CommonSpirit Health formed between Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) and Dignity Health, you’ll guide patients through the labor and childbirth process, focusing on the safety of the mother and baby, with kindness and compassion.

As a nurse in this department, you will have varying roles and responsibilities. You may work in Obstetrics - triaging patients or perform screening exams on walk-ins or you may guide patients through a routine induction and delivery. You’re busy monitoring the mother’s dilation progress while also keeping close watch on the baby’s fetal heart rate. You'll be coaching mom as the baby is delivered and providing updates and support to the patient’s partner and loved ones. 

To thrive in this role, you’ll need to appreciate that routine is never routine. We have some wonderful days in this department and get to be with people through huge milestones in their lives. We also have some hard days and are with people as they grieve. You must be sensitive and understanding to different circumstances. Above all else, you must remain calm in an emergency. A patient’s status can change quickly and it’s never good for the patient or family to see the nurse in a panic. You’re calm. You’re in control. You’re handling the situation.
