About this Program

Health Unit Coordinators work at the nursing station in health care facilities. As the center of the communications on the nursing unit, they are responsible for reading doctor's orders for patient treatments, medications and tests, and accurately relaying those orders to the appropriate department. The Health Unit Coordinator is responsible for performing clerical tasks for the nursing stations such as answering the telephone, operating the computer, assisting visitors to the unit, filing, managing station records, and maintaining patient's charts. Unit Coordinators are employed in front desk positions at various metropolitan private and public hospitals, nursing homes and clinics.
