If you are looking for the next step in your career, consider joining Team Trustbridge.
We are looking for a nurse that has a passion for caring about people and understands the urgency needed to help address patients’ needs promptly.
The Trustbridge Crisis Care Nurse needs to have the flexibility to work 12 hours a day caring for a patient in the patient’s home setting. The home setting can be a private residence, a skilled nursing facility or an assisted living. The Crisis Care Nurse will be trained to work one on one with the patient and follow through on interventions on the patient’s plan of care. The majority of the work will be conducted in the home setting.
On occasion, the Trustbridge Crisis Care Nurse will need to float to our inpatient care center when Crisis Care census goes below the planned number of patients needing crisis care. In these cases, we will reassign you to cover a shift in one of our care centers. We will do everything possible to assign you to a care center in your assigned area or an adjacent area. In cases where we need to reassign you from your regular Crisis Care assignment to another setting, a manager will be available to answer your questions and offer you support. We aim to do this ahead of your arrival to a new assignment.
