LPN needed for Casual Positions at Innovative Skilled Nursing Facility
Full Time and Part Time - 3rd, Rotating, Casual Shifts Available
Kittanning Care Center, conveniently located off Route 422 three miles east of Kittanning Borough, is a 120-bed Skilled Nursing Center, including a 42-bed Center for the Memory Impaired, and Specialty Care in Wound Management.
Built in 1980, the facility underwent a $1 million renovation in 1997 and a second renovation in 2009. The large, single-floor building features two separate dining areas and two courtyards, one to accommodate memory-impaired individuals and one for other residents. Recent improvements include new lighting, wallpaper, and flat screen televisions, as well as new electric low beds, outdoor landscaping, and a complete renovation of our Dietary Kitchen. Our Center for the Memory Impaired also features its own circular outdoor walkway, so that residents can walk for as long as they like, without the frustration they typically experience when they come to the end of a path. Support facilities are conveniently located for easy access by all residents and families.
At the center our mission is a skilled nursing staff, which seeks an experienced LPN to join its ranks. The LPN will deliver quality care to assigned residents under the direction of a supervising RN, to ensure the physical, medical and emotional needs of residents/patients are met. Additional responsibilities include:
LPNs must demonstrate sound judgment, professional knowledge and understanding, and display a positive, cooperative resident-first attitude at all times. Candidates must have a Pennsylvania LPN license or temporary practice permit, with at least one year of experience in long-term care or clinical nursing preferred.
