At HealthSouth, comprehensive rehabilitation is planned and administered by a highly specialized and integrated team including physicians, nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists, speech therapists, occupational therapists, case managers and others. Rehabilitation nurses are a valuable resource and bring an important perspective to this interdisciplinary approach.
HealthSouth is committed to nursing excellence and the best possible patient outcomes. That’s why we put so much emphasis on skill building, training, education and career development for our RN, LPN, LVN and CNA nursing professionals.
I count it a privilege to work for an organization like HealthSouth, whose goal is to help and heal. Every day I come to work looking for an opportunity to help. Whether a patient, visitor or family member, there are numerous occasions to bring a smile all around. When people genuinely care, it shows in attitude, demeanor and body language. I am blessed to be part of a team whose ambition is wellness.
Nurse Supervisor, RN, Concord, NH
I started as a rehab tech at Mid America Rehabilitation Hospital, then progressed to an LPN, and now I’m an RN. I've been empowered by continuing my education with the assistance of the tuition reimbursement benefit and the flexibility to work with my school schedule. For anyone considering a career with HealthSouth, I would tell them that there is a great interdisciplinary relationship, a friendly working environment and a diverse staff.
RN, Overland Park, KS
Following my second back surgery to repair a bulging disc, I came to our Pleasant Gap Outpatient Clinic for therapy. Being a nurse, and then becoming a patient, gave me a better idea for what our patients experience; I can really empathize with them. My time as a HealthSouth outpatient trained me to be a ‘cheerleader’ for my own patients, encouraging them from a place of experience, and hopefully making a difference in their lives.
CRRN, Charge Nurse, Nittany Valley, PA
As a Certified Rehabilitation Registered Nurse (CRRN®) and rehabilitation nurse liaison, I begin to work with individuals and their families soon after the onset of a disabling injury or illness. It is rewarding to facilitate admission to a rehabilitation hospital, since this environment provides the highest level of medical oversight, rehabilitation nursing and intense therapy to empower individuals to return to the community.
Rehabilitation Liaison, Vineland, NJ
HealthSouth Texarkana provides a wonderful opportunity for advancing your education. In the past three years, I have obtained my CRRN® and BSN with the assistance of the tuition reimbursement program. Our leaders promote education and work with us to achieve our goals. Without the encouragement and financial assistance provided by HealthSouth Texarkana, this opportunity would not have been available for me.
