Why do Registered and Licensed Practical Nurses choose to work at our Whatcom County skilled nursing facility? Here are some of the top reasons new hires and long-term employees have shared:
- Ability to develop relationships. Nursing is personal and developing relationships with patients makes day-to-day work meaningful for many. Becoming a nurse at Christian Health Care Center means you’ll be able to serve the same patients–it’s a different experience for those who have worked in a hospital setting where patients come and go quickly.
- The employer is respected in the community. Many nurses who apply at Christian Health Care Center have heard a friend or loved one speak highly of an experience at CHCC–they want to be a part of working at a healthcare campus that is well-respected in Whatcom County.
- 8 or 12-hour shifts. CHCC has shift options based on nurses working 8 or 12-hours. These shift schedules allow you pick a work schedule that fits the needs of your family and/or lifestyle. Note: patient care manager nurses work eight hours per day, five days per week.
- Every-other-weekend off. RNs and LPNs at CHCC are put on an every-other-weekend-off rotation so you can plan for vacations and family activities.
- Help with continuing education. CHCC offers a tuition reimbursement program to nurses who have been with us for more than a year and we work to accommodate school schedules. LPNs that are in RN school can often work shifts at CHCC on weekends and/or other days they are not in school. We also offer countless continuing education opportunities — at your own pace — via Relias Learning‘s online training programs.
- Passion for serving elders. Nurses that choose Christian Health Care Center have a natural love for long-term care and for serving elders. They like providing healthcare to the elderly population and helping individuals and families transition through the end of life with dignity.
