You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as an Inpatient Hospice Certified Nursing Assistant PRN.
You’re ready to roll up your sleeves. Eager to ask questions. And willing to go above and beyond to ease a patient’s pain.
You’re great at what you do, but you want to be part of something even greater. Because you believe that while individuals can be strong, the right team is invincible.
We believe that Hospice chooses you, not the other way around. Our Hospice associates are drawn to end-of-life care, passionately serving our patients on their final journey and supporting/educating the families throughout the dying process.
We offer the right support and resources to aid in your success with us. We support you by:
Being a part of the larger integrated SCL Health system
Planning the orientation process around your needs
Offering tuition reimbursement to support your career advancement
Providing you with a fast-paced, caring and exceptional experience that you will get nowhere else
Lutheran Hospice at Collier Hospice Center is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. Lutheran Hospice has supported terminally ill patients and their families with end-of-life care for more than 30 years and is one of the few hospices in Colorado to be continually accredited by The Joint Commission. Our inpatient facility offers 24 private rooms, dining and social spaces, an interfaith chapel, and bereavement support for families in one consolidated location.
Benefits are one of the ways we encourage health for you and your family. Our generous package includes medical, dental and vision coverage. But health is more than a well-working body: it encompasses body, mind and social well-being. To that end, we’ve launched a Healthy Living program to address your holistic health. Healthy Living includes financial incentives, digital tools, tobacco cessation, classes, counseling and Paid Time Off. We also offer financial wellness tools and retirement planning.
Together we’ll align mission and careers, values and workplace. We’ll honor each other’s dignity and surpass the standards we set. We’ll encourage joy, demand safety and take pride in our integrity.
We’ll laugh at each other’s jokes (even the bad ones). We’ll hello and high five. We’ll celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.
We’re proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn.
As an Inpatient Hospice CNA with us, you will know how to:
Respond to patient care needs by answering call lights, assisting patients with hygiene care and nourishment, obtaining vital signs, and communicating constructively, effectively and timely with members of the care team.
Check and document patient vitals, glucose, inputs and outputs.
Assist nurses and physicians within scope and competency.
Actively participate in meeting patient experience goals.
Assist with patient transfers, admissions and discharges as directed and in compliance with the principles of safe patient handling.
Demonstrate and adhere to the standards of infection prevention.
We hire people, not resumes. But we also expect excellence, which is why we require:
Successful completion of an accredited nursing assistant training program
Certification as a Nursing Assistant (CNA) in the state of practice
Current BLS certification endorsed by the American Heart Association or the ability to obtain within 60 days of hire (with prior approval)
High School Diploma or equivalent
At least one (1) year of experience in a healthcare setting
Your next move.
Now that you know more about being an Inpatient Hospice CNA on our team, we hope you’ll join us. At SCL Health, you’ll reaffirm every day how much you love this work, and why you were called to it in the first place.
