RN Enhanced / Palliative Care Specialist (Home Care) - Eddy Visiting Nurses and Rehab Association

If you are looking for a RN unique position in home care, to meet your schedule as full time, this could be your opportunity. Here at St. Peter's Health Partner's, we care for more people in more places.

St. Peter's Health Partners has identified an urgent and growing need to improve health care outcomes and quality of life for people and their families living with serious illness during the years before they are eligible for hospice care (those with a life expectancy of 6 months or less). The innovative solution is an evidence-based medical specialty known as palliative care/enhanced care which focuses on providing relief from the pain, symptoms and distress of serious illness. It is a team-based approach to care involving specialty-trained doctors, nurses, social workers, chaplains, and other specialists focused on improving quality of life.

Our vision is for palliative care/enhanced care to be provided earlier in the disease progression, moving from today's crisis-driven, hospital-based model to a preventative, community-based palliative care model. We envision patients accessing this care earlier to relieve symptoms, ensure that their care is matched to their personal goals and provide much needed caregiver assistance.

* Supportive environment: Access to clinical nurse specialists, in-depth computer training, assistance obtaining insurance authorizations and RN supervisors who are only a phone call away
* Close to home: Cases in multiple counties keeping close to home

What you will do:

* Coordinate an interdisciplinary plan of care with different professionals in health care and work closely with the Palliative Care and Hospice teams.


* Manages a caseload of patients in their homes

* Works with the patient's provider(s) to manage symptoms
