Under the general supervision of the Radiology Patient Care Manager or designee and the resource nurse, the non-vascular Radiology (CT, MRI, Mammography) clinical nurse (CN) works closely with the assigned radiologist and technologists to provide hands-on care to patients of all ages, before, during and after radiology procedures and imaging. Within that role, the CN performs all steps of the nursing process including assessing patients, interpreting data, planning, implementing, and evaluating care, coordinating care with other providers, and teaching the patient and family how to manage their aftercare to prevent complications. The CN partners with the patient's family wherever possible, considering all aspects of care, to deliver family centered care. The CN monitors the quality of nursing care provided.

CN is responsible for performing a variety of duties, including frequent IV starts, administering medications including moderate sedation, and assisting with procedures/imaging that require independent judgment and initiative.

The CN is responsible for his/her own professional development, including licensure, Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) certification, and maintaining current knowledge regarding the patient population in the radiology modality or modalities where he/she is assigned.

As a member of the nursing profession, the CN contributes to the profession of nursing through such activities as teaching others, sharing expertise in unit or hospital-based committees, task forces, or councils, and/or professional publications and presentations. As a member of the Stanford Health Care community, the CN is expected to treat patients, staff, providers, and the general public in a courteous and respectful manner.
