Summary: Registered Nurse responsible for the 24-hour, seven days per week administration and supervision of the Family Birth Center.

They are looking for someone with STRONG leadership experience, minimum 3-5 years and at least 5 years of experience as a RN working on L&D or postpartum, etc. They are looking for someone who has a strong backbone, someone willing to stand up to the Physicians since some of them are a bit strong willed and stubborn.
