Summary: Registered Nurses at Mary Free Bed are a key member of the multi-disciplinary team that collaborates together to provide patient-centered care. Within the Nursing Department, RNs coordinate, direct, delegate, and provide care to multiple patients. Using a patient and family-centered care approach, each RN develops relationships with patients, families, and colleagues that enhance the quality of care provided. Nursing care is performed with compassion and courtesy, and each RN is responsible to follow departmental policies and service standards. Patient and family education is a primary focus of rehabilitation nursing, and is a critical aspect of the interdisciplinary team’s efforts to assist patients to gain independence, apply adaptation strategies, and return to home.
• Licensure: Registered nurse in the state of Michigan. • Education: Associates degree in nursing is required. Bachelor’s degree preferred. Certification as a Registered Rehabilitation Nurse is preferred and will be encouraged for all MFB RNs. • Current Basic Life Support (BLS) certification
We have the great privilege of helping patients and families re-build their lives. It’s extraordinarily meaningful work and the reason we greet the day with optimism and anticipation. When patients “Ask for Mary,” they experience a culture that has been sculpted for more than a century. Our hallmark is to carefully listen to patients and innovatively serve them. This is true of every employee, fro...m support staff and leadership, to clinicians and care providers.
