For 14 consecutive years, Fortune magazine named Scripps Health among the top employers in the nation on the annual list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For. Scripps was the only San Diego-based company to receive the distinction.

After being established in 1964, Scripps Mercy Hospital, Chula Vista became part of the Scripps system in 1986. In 2004, this South Bay hospital extended its services by becoming a campus of Scripps Mercy Hospital. With 173 beds, we proudly offer patient-focused care to the community we serve.

The Medical Acute Unit at Scripps Mercy Chula Vista is currently a 34-bed combined unit with M/S, Tele and PCU patients. Patient population includes stroke, cardiac, S/P coronary angiography patients, and critical drip protocols patients. The unit focuses on patients that need continuous cardiac monitoring for myocardial infraction, chest pain, unstable angina, hypertension, percutaneous coronary intervention, diabetes, and renal failure.

Join the Medical Acute Unit as an RN and you will be trained to care for higher level of acuity through our Center for Learning and Innovation. The step-up training program will prepare you to rotate between patients in two levels of care: step-down and med/surg/tele. You must be comfortable working with COVID positive patients as well as using cardiac rhythm interpretation, cardiac drips, and respiratory support. The ideal candidate will have a minimum 12 months of RN experience with 6 months in an inpatient setting such as SNF, LTAC or Acute Care.

As a RN, you will provide direct patient care within the scope of your practice. Patient care includes assessment, planning, and implementing a plan of care and evaluating patients' progress towards expected outcomes. You will take primary responsibility for the patients' care as delivered by the Care Team under his/her supervision and work collaboratively with other members of the patient care team to ensure optimal patient care.
