Job Description

Overview

St. Luke’s Health System in Boise is seeking a RN to join our Rehabilitation team.

 

Unit/Position Summary

 The Inpatient Rehab Hospital consists of two separate “sister” units, and staff float back and forth between them regularly. Due to the nature of Rehab, the care here is highly coordinated interdisciplinary care. Patients require daily Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy and/or Recreational Therapy along with significant medical oversight to reach their discharge goals. The emphasis is on a return to functionality and promoting the highest level of self-sufficiency for patients who often start off significantly compromised due to stroke, traumatic brain injury, or other neurological insults.

 

With an average nurse/patient ratio of 1:6 and an average stay of 14 days for each patient, you will have the opportunity to build a long-term rapport with patients.  Our Inpatient Rehab facility has an 85% rate of discharge into the home, and you will have the chance to be a central part of that great success for our patients. We are looking for nurses that have a passion for education and want to guide patients in self-sufficiency.
