Company Summary

Navi Nurses is a private duty nursing company that delivers personalized care for clients and caretakers at every stage of their healthcare journey. Navi was built by nurses for nurses, empowering RN contractors to rediscover joy in their nursing career by providing comprehensive care directly to post-surgical, aging, and end of life clients.

Founded in 2021, Navi Nurses has helped hundreds of nurses to provide thousands of hours of care across the greater Phoenix area.

What does a Navi RN Preceptor do?

As an RN Preceptor with Navi Nurses, you have the unique opportunity to host an amazing experience for a Navi RN Candidate. You can provide the kind of Shadow Shift you would have found ideal and welcoming with any new RN role.
Our experienced candidates are discovering who we are at Navi, what we do that is different than the standard healthcare RN role, and whether or not Navi is the right fit for them, and vice versa. Based off of your time and experience with Navi Clients, you get to break down the role in a practical sense and put everything they have learned so far into a tangible experience. We call it a Shadow Shift, but it truly is a working interview.
Starting with your first contact with an RN Candidate, you set the tone for their experience. Unlike some hospital training experiences where nurses "eat their young" or the environment is stressful, fast paced or impersonal, we get to reinvent the training process through our working interview. You can set their nerves at ease with kindness from the first contact all the way through the direct care experience. Inviting them to jump right in and provide assessments, care and familiarizing them with the holistic care we give in a private residence. Ways to utilize their time, how we look at + treat the whole person and their support or family members, and how we go above and beyond to leave them better than when we first arrived.

Following the direct care portion of the shift, you sit down with them at a nearby location of your choosing and walk them through our charting process, tips and tricks within our Connecteam platform, and share from your own personal experience schedule management, utilization of our chain of command, and how to handle a variety of situations.

Your contribution to their initial direct care experience with Navi Nurses is invaluable, as it helps develop their own confidence and feeling of collaboration within our unique community of nurses. As an RN Preceptor, you evaluate the RN as a peer, noting their confidence, clinical skillset, social engagement, willingness to go above and beyond, and their professionalism. You complete an evaluation at the end the experience and are the primary determining voice in collaboration with our Leadership team in whether or not they are officially offered a role as an RN Contractor with Navi Nurses.
