EMR Conversions: Cerner Jobs Available For Fall In Virginia, Epic In New Mexico
Travel nurses with Cerner experience looking for a quick contract with great pay should turn their attention to Lynchburg, Virginia for new EMR conversion jobs.
Centra Lynchburg General Hosptial, the flagship facility of the Centra Health system, will undergo a Cerner conversion in September, according to industry sources. Centra has been in the process of switching their hospitals to Cerner after signing a contract with the software company in 2016, according to a press release.
The facility is primarily looking for ICU, CVICU, OR and step down travel nurses with Cerner experience. The assignments are scheduled to start on Aug. 27, last for five weeks and vary between day and night shifts. The short contract length could provide a good opportunity for qualified travelers who want to avoid working the holidays.
Based on current job board data, pay for these positions range from $1,900-2,132 weekly, which is well above the average for the state. Additionally, despite Virginia’s high cost-of-living rating, Lynchburg actually falls below the state and national average, meaning travelers can save money on rent and basic necessities.
