    Job Type


    Manager of NICU RN - Dallas, TX

    Shift: Nights- Fulltime - No weekends

    Details on Shift From Director:

    My general expectation is the evening manager hours will primarily be 3p-11p or 4p-12a. This creates cross coverage between the two managers so there is hand-off communication between day and night leadership. I want the evening leader to be just as informed as the day leader. However, there is some flexibility when the night manager wants to have increased presence later into the evenings and/or deep nights.

    There aren’t any routine morning meetings that I foresee them being expected to attend. We have a nursing leadership meeting on the 3rd Weds of each month from 1p-4p. I would work with the evening manager on flexing that one day each month to facilitate their ability to attend, unless unit operations and/or other circumstances dictate otherwise.
