RN Jobs in American Fork, UT

Registered Nurses (RNs)

An RN or registered nurse is a trained nursing professional who assists doctors in surgery by monitoring vitals and administering medication. RNs are responsible for the welfare of their patients in hospitals, nursing homes, private clinics and doctors' offices. An RN determines which treatments are needed to heal or ease symptoms when caring for patients.

An RN uses various diagnostic tools and medical equipment to assess a patient's health. RNs also manage the hygiene of patients, including changing dressings and catheterization. RNs may work at a private clinic or doctor's office or in a hospital setting where they spend time performing duties such as taking vital signs, monitoring intravenous therapy and operating diagnostic equipment like x-ray machines. RNs also monitor patients who are on ventilators, assist with surgery and provide bedside care.

RNs work long hours, including nights, weekends and holidays. RNs are required to have an RN license before practicing in the United States. RN licenses are regulated by the NLC (National League for Nursing) which is responsible for setting RN standards and requirements for RN licensure.

About American Fork

American Fork is a city in Utah County, Utah, United States. It is part of the Provo Orem Metropolitan Statistical Area. American Fork is located in the Utah Valley.

Locals call it "Happy Valley" because the residents here have a high happiness index. American Fork was founded on September 27, 1851 by William Ball Harris and about 80 others. It was originally named Evansville after one of the area's first fur hunters, David Evans. In 1851, Brigham Young sent settlers to this remote area because he provided many resources that helped build a self-sufficient community: water for factories, granite for buildings, fuel and wood for construction, ample food, game and adjacent areas.

The settlement was renamed American Fork in 1852 due to disagreements with Mormon leader Orsenhead. The name "American Fork" comes from Prospect Creek (formerly the American Fork River), which originates in the Lake Bonneville area west of the Utah Valley and flows into the Jordan River. Thirty years after first settlement, American Fork has the largest population of any city in Utah south of Salt Lake City. American Fork is known for its historic economic boom that began in 1913 when local businessmen Dusenberry, Culmer & Company began secretly buying shares in American Fork's partner trading organizations.

The new building, called New CMI, opened on September 4, 1916, was one of the first commercial buildings in the city. The cooperative managed to maintain its solvency until 1928, when it announced that it would cease to be a true cooperative with ever-changing inventory and ever-changing board of directors. The Great Depression soon struck, but CMI continued to open new offices in Provo and Salt Lake City.
