Welcome to the Heart of Nursing

Real Lives. Real People.

The Care Is in Your Hands

Life. It has become an intrinsic balancing act, a frantic race against time. There are the schedules to juggle, yards to mow, houses to clean, clothes to wash, shopping to do, meals to prepare, bills to pay, homework to check, and papers to sign. Cell phones are ringing, beepers are beeping, and pagers are paging.

Thatís all in your ďspareĒ time. Your days at work are even more hectic.

Technology might be a modern world marvel, but it certainly has accelerated the speed of life.

Modern day health care has become a maze of wires, tubes, buttons, monitors, and machines.

As a nurse, do you find yourself caring for machines more often than you are caring for people? Have you had just about e-nough?

Do you long to recapture the passion that drew you into the profession of nursing?

We invite you to the world of long term care -- a world where hands are meant for healing, minds are meant for sharing, and hearts are meant for caring.

Long term care is not a corporate machine; rather, itís is a field where nurses practice their autonomy. Their opinions are respected. In long term care, nurses are empowered to practice their profession -- the profession of caring.

In this face-paced world, it seems everything is here today and gone tomorrow. The largest hard drive and fastest modem today will be replaced with something larger and faster tomorrow. The e-this and e-that of today have replaced so many people from yesterday. Does life have to be this cold and impersonal?

Competition, greed, power, materialism ...Isnít there more to life?

Isnít there a profession that transcends the motives of Corporate America with its cut-throat quest for the mighty dollar?
