We are seeking great candidates for our open Clinical Apheresis Program Coordinator position.
All nursing practice is based on the legal scope of practice, national and specialty nursing standards, Children’s National Policies and Procedures, and in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations. The Professional Model of Care requires registered professional nurses to be responsible and accountable for their own practice. Children’s National supports the development of RN relationships within the community; specifically those relationships associated with the health and well-being of the community at large.
The Clinical Apheresis Program Coordinator will work closely with a pediatric-dedicated apheresis group of physicians, nurses, technicians and quality coordinators to perform therapeutic apheresis procedures for patients with a wide variety of conditions. Our FACT Accredited program performs stem cell collections, and performs ECP for patients with GVHD. Our coordinator will work closely with our inpatient and outpatient nursing teams to ensure apheresis procedures are performed in an efficient manner, with an emphasis on maintaining and exceeding quality standards. Our coordinator will work with the Blood Bank to ensure that products are appropriate and available in a timely fashion for emergent and routine procedures. Our coordinator will help adhere to and advance an apheresis-specific Quality Program by providing compliance oversight, authoring and reviewing procedures and providing apheresis-specific education throughout the institution. The coordinator is the expert within the program and helps coordinate new staff orientation, education and functions as a trainer. This position has a dotted line reporting relationship to Nursing and will coordinate with Manager and Nursing Executive to ensure consistent institution-wide compliance with standards of nursing practice.
