Long-term care and CNA jobs

Nursing roles in skilled nursing and assisted living facilities require unique skill sets. If you’re looking to put your expertise to work by filling one of many nationwide openings, Elite365 can help.

What makes long-term care unique?

As a long-term care professional, you provide specialized, extended care to residents and patients with chronic illnesses or disabilities. Care needs are often complex, and those requiring care tend to be older or frailer. While it can at times be challenging, it can also be rewarding.

  • Help residents and patients maintain a better standard of living.
  • Work in a calmer atmosphere compared to other healthcare facilities.
  • Experience more varied settings and locations, from urban to suburban to rural.
  • Follow a meaningful career path with the chance to make a difference.

Types of long-term care and CNA positions

Whether you want to practice nursing every so often, or want to devote most of the year to it, Elite365 can help you find roles that match your needs.

Short-term nursing jobs

If you’re interested in more flexible, day-to-day work, that fits your changing schedule, or are interested in working in a variety of facilities, a short-term position is a great option.

Contract nursing jobs

If you’d like a job that’s more predictable, but not necessarily over the long-term, contract nursing fits the bill. You can work for one facility over the span of weeks or months without committing to a full-time position.
