Full Time, Night Shift About Woodview
Sentara Woodview has been an active participant in the life of the community since 1983 and is home to nearly 200 residents needing either rehabilitation or long-term care.
We recognize the importance of quality-of-life in successful aging and believe that the promotion of concepts and beliefs of wellness are critical to aging successfully. This challenges us to see the individual's health status through the eyes of wellness instead of relating it to illness or disability. This approach to promoting the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social well-being of the individual requires a collaborative effort among the resident, the family members, the community and the healthcare providers. Hence, all of these individuals become partners in promoting a high quality of care and quality of life.

The Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) functions under the supervision of an RN or Licensed Independent Practitioner (LIP) in the clinical setting, within the scope of practice dictated by the State Boards of Nursing. The LPN demonstrates professional and clinical knowledge relative to designated clinical practice setting in the delivery of direct patient care, adhering to the level of verified competency dictated by the site specific program. The LPN works as part of a multi-disciplinary team to support and communicate effectively with other licensed independent practitioners (Physicians, NP, PA) in collaboration while providing care and treatment for patients, clinical support and teaching for patient and family members, and adheres to the legal and ethical standards of nursing practice. Maintains all certifications and licensure relevant to clinical practice setting. LPN manages responsibilities of workload with accuracy, provides excellence in customer service, performs testing, medication administration and the implementation of nursing interventions and care plans to support a holistic approach to patient care. The LPN serves as patient advocate in the prevention of illness or disease.
