Job Description:
Tidewell Hospice, the sole provider of hospice services in four counties of sunny Southwest Florida, is seeking an APRN with nursing experience and a heart for end-of-life care.

A Tidewell APRN collaborates with a physician to assess the impact of a terminal diagnosis on the patient’s physical, functional, psychosocial, spiritual and environmental needs and coordinate appropriate care. The successful candidate will make face-to-face visits to assist with diagnosis, provide symptom/pain management, facilitate changes in the level of hospice care and make recommendations about recertification. The APRN performs treatments and therapeutic corrective measures and orders medications and equipment as necessary. The position also actively participates in Interdisciplinary Team activities and collaborates closely with the Clinical Director and Associate Medical Director.

The APRN also builds meaningful relationships with patients and their families. Helping a patient and family prepare for the end of life is one of the most important aspects of the dying process.

The ideal candidate will be a graduate of an accredited school of nursing with a Master’s degree in nursing and a current and active APRN license in the state of Florida with prescriptive authority. A minimum three years of experience as an RN providing recent direct patient care in an acute-care setting is required. Previous hospice or home health experience is strongly preferred.
