The Alpenglow RN will review each client’s history and then meet with the client prior to their scheduled case. Whether preparing your client for a procedure or helping them recover, Alpenglow nurses provide psychological support and coaching for clients and their family members. Discharge planning and teaching take place as clients recover and some clients may need orthopedic equipment for home use. Family members or friends will be providing home care, and you will provide teaching before the client’s discharge. In addition, good communication with the providers is vital; reporting any changes in condition is especially important.
While schedules are generally predicable staff may be asked to work varying shifts to assist in client census. On busy days, there can be rapid client turnover as well as a variety of operational duties to be performed. Shifts after 3:30 p.m. receive a generous shift differential and after 10 p.m., the shift differential doubles. In addition to the work being less physically demanding, other positives include a pleasant work environment and collaboration with physical therapists, orthopedic surgeons, and physician assistants.
