Per Diem Registered Nurse - Job Description

Role of the Registered Nurse (RN)

George Mark Children’s House (GMCH) is seeking highly independent, self-directed RNs to provide life-affirming comfort care for children and their families. GMCH offers the unique opportunity to obtain all-encompassing exposure to advanced clinical skills while highlighting the different correlating developmental stages of children and their needs. We strive to achieve the best quality of life for each patient and family through therapeutic interventions, empathy, and continued support.

A GMCH floor nurse is a strong asset to the interdisciplinary team, consisting of a Child Life Specialist, Medical Social Worker, Palliative Care Physician, Case Manager, Volunteer Coordinator, Clinical Psychologist, and Nursing Manager. The team works together to tailor each patient’s plan of care to best suit each child, family, and particular situation. Unlike busy hospitals and sub-acute care facilities, GMCH allows nurses the invaluable opportunity to spend quality time with each patient and family in order to develop a rapport and meet medical and psychosocial needs. We prioritize closely collaborating with each family and partnering as an interdisciplinary team to provide the best quality of life for each and every GMCH child. We give children and families the chance to spend time together and create memories outside the rigid constraints of a hospital setting.
