RN – NURSE MANAGER (Full time with benefits) (Castro/Market)
Ever dream of being a big fish in a small pond? Do you have a background in HIV and/or hospice care as well as supervisory experience? If so, here’s your chance to shine!
At Maitri ( www.maitrisf.org ; pronounced “MY-tree”, meaning “compassionate friendship”), we strive to provide the type of care that each of us would like to receive at the end of our lives or during periods of life-threatening medical frailty -- care that is dignified, non-judgemental and unconditional.
We started our work in 1987 in response to the AIDS crisis and for the last 27 years have provided 24-hour nursing care in a warm, home-like, 15-bedroom setting for more than 1,000 of the most vulnerable members of our community with advanced AIDS. We have spent the last couple of years diligently looking at how best to carry out our mission for the next 27 years, in light of the changing nature of the epidemic. To that end, we have taken our existing Nursing Services Director position and split it into 2 Senior Leadership positions, both reporting directly to our Executive Director: Nurse Manager and Nurse Care Coordinator .
In our Nurse Manager position we are looking for a proven leader who can demonstrate solid clinical skills combined with a track record as a team player and problem solver, with energy and zeal to lead the clinical staff in our unique setting.

Your experience meeting or exceeding a standard of excellence as part of a team? Examples of persistence in pursuing goals despite obstacles and setbacks? Your passion for deep listening and open communication? What your previous managers miss most about you?
