Wanted: Caring, Compassionate People Looking to Grow

Do you love helping people? 

Skilled nursing facilities like Gracedale Nursing Home in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, offer the perfect opportunity for people who love helping others.  Right now, we’re hiring for a variety of positions! If you enjoy working with older adults in a skilled nursing site, Gracedale offers a place for you to grow your skills while serving people with the best care while earning competitive pay and benefits.

Our employees remain critical to providing a safe, caring, and nurturing environment for the growing population of aging adults who need the daily care that family members are no longer able to provide.  We are all getting older and the reality is that facilities such as ours serve a vital purpose for future generations.  We need health care workers who believe what they do is meaningful, valuable, and essential and who align with our mission and vision.  That’s why it’s so important for us to find those caring, dedicated people who help us create that space for aging adults to thrive in an environment that’s compassionate and invigorating.  It’s our employees who make it possible to serve our residents 24 hours a day, seven days a week and help us improve our services so we can be the best.

So if you are someone with a deep passion for serving others and you want to be that person who makes an older adult smile and feel safe and cared for every day, we’ve got a great opportunity for you!

To start, we offer a $10,000 Sign-On Bonus for new hires!  It’s only one way to demonstrate how we want to invest in your future and how much we value your desire to work here.  But aside from that incentive, Gracedale offers a wealth of important ways to help you thrive.

Struggling to stay engaged at work while your child is in daycare?  Not feeling like your current employer values your needs or understands the high costs required for quality child care?  We get it.  With Free Daycare, available on site later this spring, employees with young children can be assured that we value not only their time spent here, but how their career supports their family life as well.  Gracedale offers free daycare to all employees so they can keep more money in their paycheck and not worry about having to leave work for emergencies.  It’s our way of valuing your contributions and recognizing it’s possible to build both a family and a thriving career!

Are you worried about your future?  Do you have a plan for retirement?  That can often take a backseat if you are struggling to make ends meet and living paycheck to paycheck.  But we’ve got a solution for you.  At Gracedale, we offer a State Pension to help you develop a sound plan for the future.  We are invested in you and know that funding a retirement plan is a considerable challenge in today’s climate.  That’s why we offer a guaranteed monthly lifetime payment for retirement through Northampton County.  We can help you make financial security in retirement a reality!

We offer a number of Other Great Benefits as well, including competitive medical, dental, vision benefits, plus paid vacation, personal, holiday and sick days.  Did we forget to mention $20,000 paid life insurance, and opportunities for career advancement and tuition reimbursement?

There’s a number of ways we can help you advance your career. 

If you are looking for an entry level role that’s emotionally rewarding and provides excellent job stability, we’ve got a Free Certified Nursing Aid (CNA) Training Program on site that’s perfect for those looking to advance their careers.  The CNA plays a vital role in the link between nurses and residents by helping our residents do their daily activities, keeping everything operating optimally to improve outcomes for health, wellness, and overall care.  The program will prepare you for the Nurse Aid competency exam and with our Tuition Assistance for career advancement, you can become a Registered Nurse or Licensed Nurse Practitioner and potentially advance to that level into a position at Gracedale.  We’ve got full time or part time, and 12 hour weekend positions available, plus hourly weekly and weekday bonuses for certain shifts!  We also offer every other weekend positions and overtime for any time worked more than 8 hours per day and for working an entire shift on “off” weekends.  

For the CNA program, classes are scheduled Monday through Friday, 7:00 am to 3:00 pm for approximately four weeks. New classes, hosted at Gracedale, start every six weeks so you’ll have multiple chances to get started.  In addition, the 125-hour nurse aide training program is approved by the PA Department of Education. 

Each nursing position has a different compensation base, bonus, and shift differential rate to provide a variety of options. 

As you can tell, we know that by attracting passionate, dedicated individuals to work for us, we can make Gracedale an even better place for our residents to live and grow.  And we can’t do that without prioritizing our employees and acknowledging their contributions.  We value you and know that you can help us make a significant impact on the community we serve.  When you work at Gracedale, you not only get the opportunity to serve the residents with great care but in turn, support their friends and families as well when they know their relatives are in a safe, comforting place!

We strongly believe in attracting a diverse workforce and welcome people of all cultures, religious beliefs, identities, lifestyles, abilities, and backgrounds to apply.

If you’re passionate about our mission to care for the people with health care needs in the most cost effective manner while preserving their dignity and pursuit of the highest quality of life, we want to hear from you!
