You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a Home Hospice Registered Nurse.
You know you’re a guest in someone’s home and you tread carefully but confidently.
You know how to make small talk and answer big questions. You know how to soothe. How to hug. How to travel, and laugh, easily.
You’re great at what you do, but you want to be part of something even greater. Because you believe that while individuals can be strong, the right team is invincible.
We believe that Hospice chooses you, not the other way around. Our Hospice associates are drawn to end-of-life care, passionately serving our patients on their final journey and supporting/educating the families throughout the dying process.
We offer the right support and resources to aid in your success with us. We support you by:
- Being a part of the larger integrated SCL Health system
- Planning the orientation process around your needs
- Offering tuition reimbursement to support your career advancement
- Providing you with a fast-paced, caring and exceptional experience that you will get nowhere else
Collier Hospice Center at Lutheran Medical Center is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. Our 249-bed community-based hospital provides comprehensive, specialty care to the poor, the vulnerable, our communities and each other.
Benefits are one of the ways we encourage health for you and your family. Our generous package includes medical, dental and vision coverage. But health is more than a well-working body: it encompasses body, mind and social well-being. To that end, we’ve launched a Healthy Living program to address your holistic health. Healthy Living includes financial incentives, digital tools, tobacco cessation, classes, counseling and paid time off. We also offer financial wellness tools and retirement planning.
Together we’ll align mission and careers, values and workplace. We’ll honor each other’s dignity and surpass the standards we set. We’ll encourage joy, demand safety and take pride in our integrity.
We’ll laugh at each other’s jokes (even the bad ones). We’ll hello and high five. We’ll celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.
We’re proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn.
