RN – Clinical Nurse Specialist - Collier Hospice at Lutheran Medical Center


You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a hospice Clinical Nurse Specialist

Your ability to impart knowledge of evidence-based practice is tangible: RN colleagues feel it in your support and partnership as a change manager.

You know when to move quickly. When to sit quietly. When to laugh loudly. 

You’re great at what you do, but you want to be part of something even greater. Because you believe that while individuals can be strong, the right team is invincible.


Collier Hospice Center at Lutheran Medical Center is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. Our 249-bed community-based hospital provides comprehensive, specialty care to the poor, the vulnerable, our communities and each other. The Collier Hospice Center is an inpatient facility offering 24 private rooms, dining and social spaces, an interfaith chapel, and bereavement support for families in one consolidated location.

Benefits are one of the ways we encourage health for you and your family. Our generous package includes medical, dental and vision coverage. But health is more than a well-working body: it encompasses body, mind and social well-being. To that end, we’ve launched a Healthy Living program to address your holistic health. Healthy Living includes financial incentives, digital tools, tobacco cessation, classes, counseling and paid time off. We also offer financial wellness tools, retirement planning and even educational scholarships for the next generation. 


Together we’ll align mission and careers, values and workplace. We’ll honor each other’s dignity and surpass the standards we set. We’ll encourage joy, demand safety and take pride in our integrity. 

We’ll laugh at each other’s jokes (even the bad ones). We’ll hello and high five. We’ll celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.

We’re proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn. And instead of placing blame we’ll learn and grow together.

That’s what we’re capable of together. Is this the “we” where you belong?
