Helping a Vulnerable Population: Children and Young Adults

Young people with specialized healthcare needs are vulnerable for many reasons. For example, the risks and challenges related to their medical care and the social-emotional burden of their conditions can be exceptionally difficult.

Phoenix private duty nurses recognize these difficulties and see their work with children and young adults with specialized needs as a way to demonstrate their values of service and compassion. The ability to ensure the care, wellness, and quality of life for those who require it most is a powerful way to use your professional career for good. Our private duty nurses know they are making a critical difference every time they visit a patient’s home.

Private Duty Nurses Forge Meaningful Relationships With Patients and Their Families

Families who receive private duty nursing services from Phoenix are choosing to bring someone they can trust into their home, family life, and healthcare decision-making. This creates a strong bond between our nurses and the families they serve.

Many private duty nurses become “part of the family” as they experience the ups and downs that are a part of a child’s or young adult’s healthcare journey. Seeing their child thrive and grow is a remarkable experience for parents. It can be equally powerful for private duty nurses who are responsible for this young person’s health and wellness.

These bonds make our pediatric private duty nurses feel deeply respected and connected to their patients and families. They know that their chosen path as healthcare professionals is far more than just a job: it is a calling. You can find your calling as a private duty nurse today by visiting our careers page.
