Work towards full responsibility
The purpose of Eduployment is to train professional and responsible nurses within the Dutch Health Service. A Pleyade nurse knows perfectly well what patients and colleagues expect from him and also knows what to expect from them. You are part of a team and are ready to take on the responsibilities of the profession.
Pleyade nurses take care of their patients, mainly the elderly, within a special facility and at their home. They are also involved in the care of convalescents and, in some cases, carry out care functions related to the final stages of life.
Pleyade nurses advise and train social and health professionals. You will often be called upon to perform procedures that they are unable to do, such as inserting an intravenous catheter. You will be able to recognize the patient’s illness, his changes and act accordingly.
- Together with your colleagues, you will offer your support with regard to the care of the patients’ bodies, helping them, for example, to brush their teeth or in daily hygiene.
- On a social level, your role is no less important: you will have to try to establish relationships of trust and act as a guide for older people in conditions of psychological, psychogeriatric and social suffering.
Another task, fundamental on a social level, is to maintain the relationship between nurses – relatives / family members who care about the elderly. You will work by referencing care plans, nursing diagnoses and compiling reports.
In addition, you will regularly consult with colleagues, team leaders and other professionals such as health and social workers, physiotherapists, psychologists, social workers and (in home care) doctors.
Nurses must possess the following characteristics:
- Professional skills
- Ability to work in a team
- Language skills (Dutch B1 ++)
