We do offer a full time schedule which consists of three 12-hour shifts on either day shift (6:30AM - 7PM) or night shift (7PM - 6:30AM). There are no on-call requirements and team members rotate holidays.

What Are Nurse To Patient Ratios?

The department follows a primary care nursing model and typically utilizes a 1:4 nurse-to-patient ratio.  Patients vary in acuity and complexity, ranging from Med/Surg to high acuity Progressive Care status.  All nurses are supported by 24/7 onsite Manager and Educator support.

What Does Training Look Like?

Eskenazi Health has a dedicated clinical education team that works with new hires the first week on board. The orientation period is typically 12-weeks and during this timeframe new members will be paired with a preceptor. Continued support is provided by managers, clinical educators, and seasoned staff. One aspect that sets Eskenazi Health apart is there is a clinical educator and manager on every shift, even on weekends!
