Job Description

In these current and trying times, The Arc Tampa Bay is going above and beyond to work together in providing safe and continuous care to the individuals living in our group homes. We have 18 homes operating around Northern Pinellas County; 24 hours a day - 7 days a week. The Arc Tampa Bay has been in business for more than 60 years, and we will continue to provide care to this most vulnerable population no matter the challenges.

The Arc Tampa Bay is seeking a Registered Nurse to join our team and help us keep providing these necessary services.  Of our 18 homes, half of them serve individuals with behavior disorders.  The nurse we are seeking would be assisting these particular homes.  Homes are located in Tarpon Springs, Dunedin, Palm Harbor, Clearwater, and Safety harbor.  The Behavior RN assists with training staff on med pass, quality-assuring those med passes, advising on medical emergencies, etc.

At The Arc Tampa Bay, we are practicing social distancing, staying in small groups, and voluntary quarantining our residents.  We do have PME and are getting more in donations and orders every day so we can be prepared if there is a symptomatic individual.  It is our highest priority to protect both the individuals we serve and the staff working to care for them.

If you are a Registered Nurse, looking for a less chaotic environment to work in, The Arc Tampa Bay could be the place for you.  You can still help, still be a part of this massive effort to care for those in need, and do it for a population that truly needs your care, compassion, and expertise.
