Job Description

 

A stronger bond with patients
A stronger impact on recovery
 
BE THE CONNECTION.
 

As a registered nurse (RN), you’ll be the connection between compassionate care and the real, positive results your patients are striving to achieve. Use your skills within our inpatient rehabilitation setting to provide the nursing perspective and attention to detail that our highly specialized, integrated team approach requires. Elevate expectations and outcomes with national post-acute care leader Encompass Health.

 

What Makes Encompass Health Careers Different—and Better:

 

Working at Encompass Health means being part of something special: A team that is passionate about making an impact on patients’ lives each day. Unlike the typical hospital setting, Encompass Health offers you the unique opportunity to walk alongside patients on their road to recovery from stroke, spinal cord injuries, neurological disorders, joint replacements, multiple trauma and cardiac/pulmonary conditions. As you help patients achieve goals and regain independence, you can form significant relationships with them and celebrate the successes they experience along the way.

 

Our culture of compassion and collaboration is founded on more than just the care we provide our patients; it is expressed in the values we live. We encourage and empower each employee to keep learning and growing by providing the resources to deliver a better way to care. At Encompass Health, you’ll find something decidedly different and more satisfying: A career that is challenging, inspiring and rewarding. Maximize your talent and join a team that is committed to setting the standard for better healthcare with this engaging opportunity:

 

 

Use your clinical experience in a non-bedside position!

 

This is a full- time position, working 3-4 days during the week with an every other weekend rotation to help support admissions activity for our hospital.

A patient just admitted to Encompass Health of Savannah has many needs and they have often just been transferred from an acute care hospital, having experienced a serious injury or medical event. They are stable, but still acute.

We are not like other hospitals! Our patients immediately get involved in their own recovery and they need to understand what to expect, their families need to know how we work and how important they are in that recovery.  A new patient may be hungry, be in pain, need medication and may have trouble communicating and we know this is important, but time consuming for our other staff nurses.

 

Our Admission Nurse handles all of these needs, takes a clinical assessment, checks on dietary concerns, medications that may be required for a 1-2 week stay with us and most of all helps a new patient begin to believe in their ability to overcome serious injury!

 

If you are an experienced RN, looking to use all your skills in a non-beside position you could be exactly who we would like to talk to!

 

Credentials:
 

• Current RN licensures appropriate to state regulations required.

• CPR certification required (ACLS preferred).

• CRRN certification preferred.

• One or more years of experience in an inpatient rehabilitation hospital setting preferred.

 

Enjoy competitive compensation and benefits that start on day one, including:

 
• Benefits that begin when you do.

• Affordable medical, dental and vision plans provided to meet the needs of full and part-time employees and their families.

• Generous paid time off that increases with tenure.

• Tuition reimbursement and continuing education opportunities.

• Company-matching 401(k) and employee stock-purchase plans.

• Flexible spending and health savings accounts.
