RN/LPN Jobs in Whatcom County
Join our team!
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 change over quickly.
In addition to long-term care, CHCC also has a short-stay rehabilitation unit, a dementia care wing, and a neighboring adult day health program. As a nurse at CHCC, you can use and maintain your skills in one area — say therapeutic rehab nursing — and potentially have access to working as a nurse in other departments on our campus.
Career growth opportunities
Do you dream of taking your career to the next level by becoming a nurse manager? With the right skillset, that dream can become a reality at CHCC. We often train and promote RN/LPN nurses who work here to become nurse managers and even to fill the role of assistant director of nursing. There is a clear path to career advancement at our Lynden healthcare center.
A respected employer
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.
Flexible work environment
CHCC has full-time 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. We also offer part-time 4-hour options (6-10 p.m.). Additionally, full-time 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 full-time nurses who have been with us for more than a year and we work to accommodate school schedules. LPNs who 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 who choose Christian Health Care Center as an employer 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 life with dignity and respect.
