Building a secure and hopeful today so children facing health issues and poverty succeed tomorrow. That's the promise of The Childrens Place Association.
Since 1991, our Residential Center has served the most medically fragile children in the greater Chicago area, becoming a "home away from home" for this highly vulnerable population. Children's conditions range from cerebral palsy, developmental delays and complications of prematurity or HIV, to shaken baby syndrome, physical or mental abuse, or substance exposure. This 10-bed facility offers 24-hour care by specially trained nursing staff and dedicated volunteers. It is more than just a place to stay, it is somewhere children can laugh, learn, dance, nap, eat and play.
We are seeking a Registered Nurse to support the Residential Center on an as needed basis. The Registered Nurse assesses and monitors the health status and well being of each child in the Residential Center, provides medical care as directed by the children’s health care providers, and provides leadership to Child Care Workers.
This position will be scheduled to work on an as needed basis.
Must be a licensed Registered Nurse with a minimum of 1 year of pediatric experience. Infectious disease experience preferred.
Current CPR certification required.
Valid Illinois driver’s license and safe driving record required.
Must be at least 21 years of age (insurance requirement).
Bilingual (English/Spanish) verbal and written communication skills preferred.
