Job Description

Greetings, We are looking for two nurses to join our great team of RNs who provide healthcare for a high-level quadriplegic.

**NOTE: This is for Night or Evening**

/    Features    /

  • Flexible scheduling – apply to do as many shifts a week as fits your schedule. Many people find this job works well as a primary or secondary source of employment.
  • Comprehensive training – nurses only start working on their own once they are ready.
  • Fuses aspects of home, rehab, and acute care into one job, in a nice work environment with great coworkers.
  • The opportunity to learn an individual patient’s healthcare in-depth, and gain experience with specialized devices like a phrenic nerve peacemaker and in-exsufflator.

/    Current Openings    /

One to two positions are open for filling night shifts. Many shifts are available, and applicants can apply to be hired to take between 2 and 4 shifts a week, for part-time or full-time work respectively, depending on what they are seeking.

Additionally, one position is open for one evening shift each week, a respite shift for the quadriplegic’s parents.

Applicants may apply for nights or evenings, or both.


/    Patient    /

One adult C1/C2 quadriplegic part-time student, living with his parents, who provide care when professionals are not available.


/    Qualifications    /

  • RN license for the state of Rhode Island. Nursing students soon about to obtain their licenses are welcome to apply.
  • Two employment-based references.
  • High personal standards of patient care. After training, nurses work largely unsupervised, so we look for people who are self-motivated to provide their best care.
  • Reliability. The patient as well as the other nurses rely on one another.
  • An interest in learning a comprehensive and detailed care program.
  • Effective communication with coworkers and patient, including suggestions for improving care when they see an opportunity to do so.

Experienced nurses and new grads are both welcome.


/    Responsibilities    /

A wide spectrum of healthcare duties from minor ADLs to maintaining clear consistent ventilation, using common medical devices and advanced technologies, in the home and out in the community.


/    Compensation    /

The Medicaid waiver program which funds the nursing coverage allows for a base pay rate of $37.86 an hour. Additionally, there are yearly bonuses, plus a hiring bonus upon completing training and 10 shifts worked independently.
