As we celebrate National Nurses Week, we would like to share some of the exciting things we’re doing to support the professional growth and development of our Epic nursing team!

Each lab features a life-like doll equipped with a tracheostomy and gastrostomy.

We are pleased to offer flexible in-person and online training opportunities via nursing skill labs, instructor-led training courses and an Epic online learning system.

Nursing Skill Labs
Nursing skill labs allow nurses to strengthen and practice their clinical skills before going into the homes to provide care.

Each lab has a classroom setup, features a typical client bedroom, and includes a life-like doll that has a tracheostomy and gastrostomy.

Nurses perform basic care and emergency procedures on the doll while nursing team leaders assess their skill levels and provide feedback.

All supplies needed to provide care are available in the skill labs.

Training Courses
Our instructor-led clinical training courses cover topics such as gastrostomy tube management, central line infusion/site management and tracheostomy/ventilator.

Each training course is tailored to meet the specific needs of our nurses and clients.

Online Learning System
The Epic online learning management system launched earlier this year and features online training courses in a variety of topics related to home health care.

The system is an on-going educational opportunity for our nurses throughout the country. The first course launched in April, and more courses are scheduled for release later this year.

All supplies needed to provide care are available in the skill labs.

With so many opportunities to grow and learn, you can rest assured that you and your loved ones are receiving the highest quality care from our team of highly skilled nurses.

And if you’re looking for a rewarding career with a company that provides many opportunities for professional growth and development, then Epic is the place for you!
