As healthcare continues to evolve and more patients are transitioning home for treatment, we’re seeking a driven, compassionate Registered Nurse to join a multidisciplinary team providing skilled care for the most acutely ill patients in the home. Key responsibilities include facilitating communication between patients and providers, developing and managing a detailed plan of care for each patient, educating the patient and his/her family, and providing skilled care for patients who are recovering from acute health events or managing chronic health conditions. This practice setting affords caregivers the opportunity to spend significant time with the patients they manage, while affording patients the opportunity to recover privately in the comfort of their own home.
