RN Jobs in Tooele, 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 Tooele

Tooele is a city in Tooele County, Utah, United States. The population was 35,742 at the 2020 census. It is the county seat of Tooele County. Located about 30 minutes southwest of Salt Lake City, Tooele is known for its Tooele Army Depot, which overlooks the nearby Oquirr Mountains and the Great Salt Lake.

Some believe that the unusual name of the city comes from the ancient Indian word Ute, meaning tumbleweed. This is one of many unverified explanations, as the use of the name predates the introduction of the Russian thistle in the United States.

For every 100 women, there were 98.3 men. For every 100 women aged 18 and over, there were 95.9 men.

Other explanations include that the name comes from a Native American chief, but there is controversy over the existence of such a chief.

The median household size was 2.98 and the median household size was 3.39. Among the 7459 households, 46.1% had children under 18 living together, 62.6% were husband and wife living together, 11.1% had a female head of the household but no husband was present, and 21.9% were non-households.

The median household income in the city was $43,862 and the median household income was $48,490. The median income was $37,373 for men and $24,175 for women. The city's per capita income is $16,580.

The Tooele Arts Festival, a three-day annual event, brings together vendors of unique works of art including paintings, jewelry, ceramics, photographs, and sculptures. The event includes a live music program, playground, and animation. There is no entry fee for the festival, and it takes place in a city park just west of the city center. It started in 1985; in the early years of its existence, the Festival was held at the end of May, but it seems to coincide with the cold of late spring, detrimental to the holding of the Festival in the open air.
