Description: Registered Nurses:

Are you looking for a job where you get to know your patients, establish a relationship,  and have the time to spend with them without being rushed?

Are you interested in seeing what happens when your patient is discharged from the hospital and has to make day to day decisions about their health in their own environment?

Does working outside of the traditional hospital walls interest you?

Does having autonomy in your workday appeal to you?


If you are able to say "Yes" to any of these, community nursing may be what you are looking for.

Home Health is seeking full-time Registered Nurses for a dynamic and growing department to provide nursing care to individuals in the community covering a 50-mile radius. 

The experienced Home Health or Hospice nurse is our preferred candidate, but consideration will be given to the experienced RN with a comprehensive (and current) adult medical/surgical or critical care background. Excellent assessment skills are crucial. Computer skills are necessary as our clinical documentation is completely computer based.

Interpersonal communication is essential, as you will be working with a large interdisciplinary team of prudent professionals. Excellent attendance, self-motivation, time management, and pride in your work are all key to a successful Home Health career.
