Part-time (RN) Registered Nurse - Emergency Room Experience
We understand the physical and emotional challenges of being a medical provider. We know what the looming fear of making a mistake or medical error due to long hours, fatigue and burnout. At Crucial Care, we also understand the reward. When you went into nursing as a profession, it was because you chose it as a career path or it was your calling. Either way, letting the emotionally charged encounters you face daily go when you leave at the end of the day is easier said than done.
If you are empathetic and connect emotionally with your patients, but have been frustrated by the level of stress you endure or the inability to give patients the care they need because of your workload and the long hours you work, Crucial Care is your solution. We encourage our nurses to spend time building relationships with patients and helping ensure that care is coordinated after their visit.
We don't treat our patients like a commodity. If you feel this way too, then Crucial Care should could be your future.
