Take charge, enable independence, and enjoy the relationships

  • "Patients truly depend on you for the answers. You are their lifeline. You're the first person they think of and call if something goes wrong and it's your responsibility to do the troubleshooting and get them back on track." - Sabrina, PD RN.

Through this experience, the trusting relationships you build with patients and their families are strong and fulfilling.

 

You're calling the shots. Here's what you can expect:

 

Complexity - Embrace a mentally demanding RN role with many moving parts.

Expect to manage "a very organized chaos." You multitask in myriad ways - put down one patient's chart, start another, work with a physician, run out to get a medication, respond to a supplier's request - with lots of loose ends to pull together and a lot of follow up. It's challenging, fun and keeps your day fresh.

 

Educator - Empower patients to live healthier lives sharing your knowledge.

You've got to love teaching and education. Training patients takes time and mental energy and the rewards of that investment come in seeing the transformation of your patients from feeling sick and afraid, to strong and independent.  

 

Autonomy - Provide comprehensive patient care in an independent setting.

Plan to be on your toes at all times. You use your mind constantly. You apply your "core" nursing skills to assess, diagnose and implement complete care plans as you look at the whole patient. There's a lot to track and manage and the joy comes in witnessing how your care impacts patients' lives.

Qualifications

The shining star in this role should have:
  • Passion for making a difference in people's lives
  • Ability to prioritize, manage time and organize many moving parts
