We are looking for Registered Nurses to join Bailey-Boushay House, a nationally recognized model for HIV care. Bailey-Boushay House opened in 1992 as America's first skilled nursing facility that was planned, funded, built and staffed to meet the needs of people living with AIDS. Virginia Mason — a nationally-recognized health care provider — has operated Bailey-Boushay House since the day they opened, ensuring those who come here receive the highest quality care available.

As a Registered Nurses at Bailey-Boushay House you will:


  • Specialize in serving patients with and without AIDS who require end of life care, including those with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease), Huntington's disease or any illness limiting a person’s life expectancy to less than three months.


  • Work with both the outpatient program serving 320 individuals and the 35 bed inpatient program.


  • Work with a multidisciplinary team of professionals including therapists, social workers, nursing assistants and dietary staff.


  • Provide around-the-clock nursing care focused on the needs of the patient, and the people in the patient's life.


  • Social and cultural diversity is respected and honored by our staff members, who actively participate with families and loved ones to honor special wishes and needs during the patient's stay.


  • Patients facing the end of life are supported medically, emotionally, and spiritually in an environment that emphasizes quality of life. Clinicians at Bailey-Boushay House treat the while person, not just the diagnosis.

  • As an employee of Virginia Mason, our staff enjoy the emotional benefits of working at a nonprofit facility, but are paid as hospital employees - a higher level of compensation than the typical social service agency. Join Bailey-Boushay House and continue your career as a Registered Nurse with an organization that provides the opportunity to grow with one of the premier healthcare organizations in the Pacific Northwest.

    Qualifications:


    • Current Washington State licensure as an RN


    • CPR certification is required every two years


    • Bachelors of Science of Nursing preferred


    • Understanding of chemical dependency.


    • Excellent communication skills.


    • Understanding of HIV/AIDS disease progression.


    • Excellent counseling/psycho-social skills.

    Virginia Mason offers much more than competitive compensation and benefits. With continuing education opportunities and the added potential of relocation assistance, you will find our commitment to your well-being is both rewarding and refreshing.

    There is also the lifestyle benefit that comes with finding yourself in the heart of the Pacific Northwest. Surrounded by the vibrancy and sophistication of one of the most livable cities in the country, finding the perfect urban or outdoor pursuit will instinctively and pleasurably become second nature.

    We are an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
