Harmon House is a 109-bed Skilled Nursing Center that offers Specialty Care, Rehabilitation, and Nursing Care on a long or short-term basis.


Quality nursing and professional medical care is at the center of the approach, and the Assistant Director of Nursing (ADON) will be responsible for much of the training, teaching and overall development of nursing personnel. This role requires strong nursing skills, practical training and proven leadership abilities, plus strong interpersonal and communication abilities, patience, compassion and a desire to help others. 



Day-to-day responsibilities include:

  • Directing, guiding and teaching RN supervisors, LPNs, nurse aides and unit clerks, ensuring consistent, cohesive quality of care
  • Evaluating nursing staff performance and providing structured appraisals to improve and enhance service
  • Coordinating resident rounds to assess residents’ skin conditions and work with the Director of Nursing to develop comprehensive, individualized follow up
  • Aiding in the interview, hiring and training process for all new nursing staff, including presenting at the new employee general orientation
  • Functioning as the primary instructor for nursing assistant classes, including documenting performance and participation
  • Monitoring staff patterns and nursing care hours to ensure proper coverage at all times
  • Supervising staffing coordinator, and performing these duties during any period of absence
  • Planning and coordinating in-service education programs, in accordance with applicable regulations
  • Developing a full-year schedule of planned education programs, geared primarily towards geriatric residents
  • Identifying and evaluating special nursing problems and emergency situations quickly and in accordance with residents’ advance directives; initiating life saving measures in the absence of a physician, as appropriate


Additionally, the Assistant Director of Nursing will assume all responsibilities for the Director of Nursing during periods of absence and, as such, a strong managerial and organizational background is critical with Infection Control experience a plus! Candidates must have a current Pennsylvania RN license plus at least two years of experience in an extended care facility, specific to geriatric and/or rehabilitative nursing services.
