- A sense of balance between you and your work is very important. At Tennova, we understand how important that balance is to you. So, we offer flexible scheduling with a variety of shifts.
- For nurses, we offer off-shift hours, and pay incentives allow you to choose your work schedule. Evening or night shifts are particularly well suited for those with nighttime biorhythms.
- We offer a two-day weekend alternative that frees your weekdays. For Associates with small children or for nurses returning to school, our 12-hour weekend shifts offer benefits and may suit your personal needs.
- The teamwork developed at work can easily extend to personal friendships.
At Tennova Healthcare, we believe that nursing can be a very fulfilling career, particularly when you are able to make a real difference in a patient's life — it intrinsically affects your own life. We seek nurses who:
- Listen to patients and understand what they need.
- We can count on, because you're willing to do what it takes to care for a patient or support the nursing team.
- Have good organization and communication skills. Being a critical thinker and problem solver are other key elements.
- Excel at what they do. Some of our best nurses become mentors, showing new grads and the new nurses how to become caring, effective nurses, too.
- Are alert and responsive to the needs of your patients, as well as the staff and nursing team.
- Are detail oriented. Nursing requires paying attention to numerous details and prioritizing multiple tasks. We look for nurses who can manage effectively in a fast-paced, ever-changing environment.
- Have strong written and verbal skills, and are effective communicators.
