National celebration of Pediatric Nurses Week

In honor of Pediatric Nurses Week, more than 60 BAYADA Pediatrics offices across the country will be holding a career open house on Thursday, October 9 for nurses interested in caring for children in the home. Pediatric experience is a plus, however free training is available for adult nurses who want to transition to pediatrics.

The event will feature refreshments, a drawing to win an iPad mini and other great prizes, and the chance to learn about the benefits of providing meaningful, one-on-one care for children in the comfort and safety of home.

“BAYADA hires only those health care professionals who share in our commitment to deliver care with compassion, excellence, and reliability—our core values,” said BAYADA Area Director of Recruitment and Retention Michael Ward. “We welcome all nurses who fit that criteria to come in and learn about how they can use their skills to make a difference in the lives of local children and their families.”

According to the Society of Pediatric Nurses, “This week calls attention to the critical work that pediatric nurses provide to improve healthcare delivery.” Pediatric nurses not only provide excellent and essential care to their young patients, but also provide education and support to the parents and families. Home health care benefits medically fragile children with a wide range of diagnoses, including seizure disorders, muscular diseases, neurological disorders, and respiratory diseases.

BAYADA offers competitive pay and benefits, various scheduling options, training and career advancement opportunities, and exceptional 24/7 clinical support. Click to find a BAYADA Pediatric job in your area.
