For nearly 30 years, Independence Plus, Inc. has been providing people with complex medical and respiratory needs the opportunity to live fulfilling lives at home.
One thing that makes IPI unique in the home health care field is that caring for our patients is extremely challenging. Our nurses become trained specialists in directly caring for adult and pediatric ventilator-dependent patients at home, many with rare diagnoses. They are the head nurse of their shift, but they are never alone. They are supported by a dedicated team that wants to see them succeed and their patients thrive. In short, IPI provides the best care possible for medically complex patients at home. We also expect the VERY best from our nurses.
We understand that nurses who come to IPI may or may not have had homecare experience, so we provide a rigorous pre-employment hands-on training and education program designed to prepare them to provide the best possible care for our patients.
IPI is always on the search for RN’s and LPN’s who want to join our team. In addition to our open nursing positions, we also offer a unique opportunity for recent nurse graduates to gain critical experience through IPI’s year-long Home Nursing Residency Program.
This hands-on training and education nursing program gives RN’s and LPN’s with less than one year of experience the opportunity to be fully immersed in Home Nursing, with an intensive classroom program followed by a pre-employment course, ventilator training, two weeks of educational site visits and up to 64 hours of training in the field with a nurse preceptor. Upon successful completion, Nurse Residents independently care for medically complex patients living at home. 24-hour clinical support is always available. Five cohorts complete our Residency Program annually and we are continually recruiting for new candidates.
