Surgical Specialties Unit: Orthopaedics, Reconstructive Plastics and Urology – 6 Main

6 Main is a 30-bed Surgical Specialties Unit and is the largest unit at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. All of the rooms on 6 Main are private and offer continuous pulse oximetry. 6 Main nurses provide exceptional postoperative care in our fast-paced environment. Common surgical procedures include joint replacement, spinal surgery, foot and/or ankle surgery, urological procedures, reconstructive plastic surgery, and wound management.

6 Main is currently on the journey to become certified as an Orthopedic Joint Replacement Unit, designated by the Joint Commission for Disease Specific Care. We will be undergoing renovation beginning in the Spring of 2015 to make rooms more easily accessible for the patients and healthcare providers.

6 Main is notable for its collaborative interdisciplinary practice. Our nurses work closely with physicians, nurse practitioners, physical therapist, and clinical pharmacists, just to name a few. 6 Main is often described as a “family-like environment” in which nurses support one another and demonstrate outstanding teamwork.

6 Main values nursing education and professional development. As a result, newly hired nurses are provided a comprehensive orientation, designed by a Clinical Educator and tailored to the nurses’ skills and experience. Our nurses are also involved in collaborative governance with a strong presence on every hospital-wide council.

Clinical expertise, teamwork and a commitment to the profession of nursing define the nursing practice on 6 Main.

Experience, Education and Certification:
  • Required: Two years of hospital-based medical/surgical nursing experience.
  • BSN preferred; will consider candidates enrolled in a BSN program.
  • CMSRN, RN-BC or Orthopaedics certification is highly desirable.

As part of our compensation package, our full-time, hospital-based clinical nurses may receive additional benefits that include:
  • Outstanding educational opportunities, including up to $6,000 of tuition assistance annually.
  • Professional development opportunities, including Collaborative Governance and a financially-incentivized Clinical Advancement Ladder.
  • Relocation reimbursement (based on eligibility).
