Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) - Day Shift - Transitional Care Unit (TCU)
At Penn State Rehabilitation Hospital our services have been designed for patients who need a longer rehabilitation hospitalization for their recovery. We are currently seeking a Licensed Practical Nurse to join our team.
Transitional care allows patients to receive medically-supervised therapy by highly-trained physical, occupational and speech therapists in a comfortable, friendly setting. This facility is designed to provide medical, nursing and therapy services to patients with the express purpose of "transitioning" them back to their prior living arrangements when possible.
Patients admitted to Penn State Health Transitional Care typically stay less than two weeks, depending on the patient's progress and discharge destination. Each patient, on average, can expect to receive one to two hours of therapy daily. Each patient has an individually-designed care plan with input from a physician, nursing staff, therapy team and case manager.
A Licensed practical/vocational nurse provides direct patient care and functions as a part of the nursing team under the direction of a Registered Nurse. The role and scope of function is determined by the degree to which professional judgment is required to perform a particular function or procedure. The delegation of tasks or functions to the LPN/LVN is the prerogative of the RN within the scope of the State Nurse Practice Act.
- Valid State License as an LPN/LVN required.
- Certified BLS or completion in first 90 days of employment required.
- Previous clinical experience preferred.
