“Be somebody who makes everybody feel like somebody.”
I keep this framed title and quote on my desk. It’s the first thing I see when I start to work (besides my Anne of Green Gables mouse pad). It’s integral to my personal values, and it’s integral to Silver Lining.
When you care about people, you care about all people. At Nurse Next Door, the care we deliver to our clients begins and ends every day with how we care for our own. Internally, we make it a priority to create and maintain a supportive culture in which our caregivers can thrive. When they’re at their best, our service to our clients can be at its best.
You have a lot of options. Why work at Nurse Next Door? I’ll give you 5 reasons.
- Little Things Make a Big Difference
You CAN do the little things that make a big difference because we give you the resources to make it happen. From giving stipends so you can pick up a cupcake for your favorite client (who is not diabetic, of course) to empowering you to make a favorite meal and giving you the tools to do it, we want you to help our clients Live Life to the Fullest while we do the same.
- 1 on 1 Care
It’s 1 on 1 care. Not 10 on 1. Not 5 on 1. 1 on 1. A couple might make it 2 to 1. Our caregivers can focus on their clients and provide highly customized care for them to meet their personal preferences.
It’s not for everyone. In fact, if you require complete structure, this may not be the best environment for you. If you always find ways to improve your work environment, enjoy the ability to affect change, and are proactive, this is a place where you will thrive. Take a look at the 10 Things that require zero talent (a list we talk about regularly and hold our team accountable to).
- License Oversight
In order to renew a CNA license, your ‘worked’ hours have to be supervised by an RN. As a skilled home health agency, we have the certification to supervise, so the hours you work support your license renewal. This isn’t the case if you work at a Program Approved Service Agency (PASA), because you are not overseen by an RN. With a career at Nurse Next Door Delaware, you only need one job to support your professional CNA license.
We focus on ways you can make a career with us, so we offer a benefits package to help you create one.
