We Make a Difference in Kids’ Lives
We specialize and focus on pediatric home care nursing. Caring for a child is very different than caring for an adult, and it takes a special nurse to provide the kind of compassionate, high-quality care our pediatric patients need.
As a trusted leader in pediatric home care nursing, our nurses are trained and qualified to truly make a difference in the lives of the families we serve.
We want our nurses to feel 100% comfortable and supported before caring for a patient on their own. 1st Choice Pediatric provides nurses two types of training: Classroom and On-the-Job Shadowing. We determine the experience, skill level, and training required for each nurse, and then set up individual training programs catered to each patient’s needs.
Nurses attend classroom-based courses on specific equipment and medical requirements pertaining to their patient. We schedule on-the-job training for nurses to shadow experienced nurses caring for patients. We use training materials from the Minnesota Pediatric Home Care Council in order to ensure nurses gain the experience and knowledge needed to become successful. 1st Choice Pediatric does not limit the amount of training shifts a nurse requires – nurses are able to train with another nurse until they feel comfortable caring for patients on their own.
Flexible Block Scheduling
We work with nurses to establish a schedule that works for them. Once you have an established block schedule, you never need to worry about being scheduled on other days. Schedules are typically 2-week blocks, and continue to repeat until a nurse or a family requests a change. It makes it easy for nurses to plan appointments, child care, and any other events on their time.
