Are you a nurse with amazing communication skills? Consider becoming a hospital nurse liaison. As a nurse liaison, you will be the primary contact person for patients in acute care, long-term acute care, hospice, and rehabilitation facilities.
In addition to great communication skills, hospital nurse liaison positions need people who can pay close attention to details. Nurse liaisons must monitor the status of their patients by keeping up with their treatment. This includes reporting on admissions and discharges, test results, and patient progress.
Nurse liaisons work closely with patients and their families to explain the types of services the facility offers and answer any questions. They also play an important role in scheduling follow up appointments for patients, including therapy sessions and doctor’s visits. As such, hospital nurse liaisons must be comfortable with creating a safe environment while maintaining emotional control.
If you’re not a nurse, but think this could be the career for you, you’ll have to get the right education. In order to apply to hospital nurse liaison jobs, you have to be an RN or LPN. Hospital nurse liaisons are still nurses and must be able to administer medical tests and assess patients in addition to their liaison duties. You will most likely need a few years of nursing under your belt before making the leap to nurse liaison.
