Posted on: July 5, 2024

Job Description:

Are you a CNA but having a tough time finding the right job that fits your schedule? We get it - you have lots of other responsibilities that take up a lot of your day. Some of us are mothers and our kids have hectic schedules - some of us are in school so can only work outside of those hours - or maybe you already have a job and cant find a second job that fits the specific hours you need. Whatever the predicament you have, Preferred Health Care Services has options.

1. Private Duty CNA

Job Description: CNA provides basic nursing care to clients within the scope of nursing assistant responsibilities. Assist clients with ADLs at their place of residence. Some ADLs include dressing, showering, toileting, feeding, serving, transferring, maneuvering, etc. On average, one client needs 10-12 hours/week. You are welcome to build up your client base!

  • Steps to hire:
    • Apply here.
    • Set up an interview - Bring ID & COVID card.
    • Discuss schedule/availability - this is your chance to discuss the times that you are available. This will help us place you with a client who lives close to you during the hours that work best for the both of you!
    • CORI Check.
    • Gather remaining paperwork needed - i.e. TB test results, or any other missing documentation.
    • Pick up your badge.
    • Get started! 2. Per Diem Facility CNA: No Minimum Hours or Mandates

      We are grateful to have contracts with several surrounding short and long-term care facilities throughout Bristol County. Unfortunately, many of these facilities are short-staffed. If you can't commit to a set schedule every week, you can pick and choose your OWN schedule. Look at a calendar of facility needs and pick shifts that fit your schedule. Shifts are: 7:00am-3:00pm, 3:00pm-11:00pm, or 11:00pm-7:00am. If you can only work one shift a month, or want to fill up your week with a variety of shifts, you can do whatever works for you!

      Some of our partners include:
      • Sacred Heart
      • New Bedford Jewish Home
      • Fall River Jewish Home
      • Marion Manor
