FootCare by Nurses (www.footcarebynurses.net) is growing and is looking for kind, caring compassionate nurses to join our team in the Great Barrington and South County area.
We reduce pain and prevent falls, wounds and amputations, and we do this by taking care of feet. This is a nursing practice that looks at the whole person. Nurses are expected to utilize all their nursing assessment and teaching skills. Our mission is prevention, and our passion is caring. We are a small woman-owned business. We have contracts with Elder Services, long term care facilities, private pay clients and some clinics. Responsibilities include managing a caseload of patients on a timely basis, providing evidence-based foot care and education (we train you), supporting the health and wellness of elders through conversation, explanation and sharing of nursing knowledge. You will also work collaboratively with your support team and be responsible for developing and maintaining caring, trusting nursing relationships with patients and caregivers.
Applicants must be comfortable using electronic devices (cell phone, iPad, GPS and various apps), tools and be willing to utilize therapeutic touch. Our nurses often sit on the floor to provide care. Applicants should have a natural curiosity about people and a willingness to learn all sorts of new things. Ours is a holistic practice that includes complementary and alternative therapies.
Applicants are expected to drive to people’s homes. This is very fulfilling nursing work for the right person. Reliability, kindness, caring, integrity and quality work are important. You can build your own schedule and there is flexibility.
New grads with caregiving experience, older nurses, nurses managing families and nurses who are confident in their skills are encouraged to apply. No nights, weekends, or on call required. This is an ideal job for a curious person who likes autonomy, can manage their own schedule, is committed to keeping the elderly well, likes to advance and apply nursing knowledge, loves one-on-one with patients and values making a difference. Salary and other compensation negotiable and related to commitment.
