www.genevaglen.org/staff/nurse.html


Dates, Pay, Accommodations

For the 2018 season, the pay is $6,000 from June 3rd - August 11th. Travel allowance is also provided if travel is necessary from out of Colorado, on a scale from $150 to $350 depending on distance. Room and board is also provided as well as health and accident insurance, worker's compensation, and malpractice insurance. However, it is strongly recommended that the Camp Nurse also retain personal medical malpractice insurance. The Nurse is provided private quarters in one of the camp's newest buildings, the R&R Health Center which is clean, modern and fully equipped. All amenities are provided.

Time Off

Time off includes one day per week (24 hours), and one night per week. More time may be provided depending on the availability of substitutes.

Licensing

The Camp Nurse must be licensed, and be currently registered, or have reciprocity, to practice in the state of Colorado. A Nurse Graduate who passes the NCLX prior to the beginning of the June season will be qualified and is considered for the position.

Basic Qualifications

The Camp Nurse should relate well to groups of young people and enjoy outdoor activity, fresh air, and beautiful mountain scenery! Her (his) experience and temperament should have prepared her(him) to function independently and accept the responsibility of the camp health care program.

Applicants with children

Often nurse applicants have children which must be considered as a part of the employment package. Our greatest difficulty has been in finding space to enroll a child in the camp program. Geneva Glen enrolls campers from the ages of 6 to 16. If space is available (which depends upon the age - i.e., the younger the camper, the easier to enroll - we will regard your application giving some due consideration of camper tuition against salary.

Responsibilities

Include stocking First Aid supplies in the Health Center and all areas of camp and controlling their outflow; safeguarding the camper's prescription medications; administering the medications at the prescribed dosages and hours; completing insurance forms; and supervising and maintaining the Center's housekeeping standard. A staff member is provided to assist in the housekeeping of the Health Center. The Camp Nurse can expect the Camp administration to provide whatever necessary equipment and supplies may be needed for the nurse and the Health Center.

Toward the end of the staff orientation week prior to camp, the Nurse provides training for the staff in preventative health care both for themselves and their campers, rules and guidelines for the health care program, and a counselor's approach to the treatment of illnesses and injuries. The Camp Nurse is expected to be present with a physician at the registration of each camp session (every two weeks) to check-in and file the incoming health forms, record individual problems and note medications. An outline of some of the suggested duties is on the reverse. A complete Health Care Plan is available for review, and is provided as part of the job training.
