Description

Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)

Location: Frankfort, KY 

Schedule: Monday-Friday 8am-5pm


As a BCN Hospice Team member, you will be a part of a team providing care and support to patients and their families who no longer receive treatments to cure their terminal illness, but instead choose care to improve their comfort and quality of life. Our service allows our team members to focus on one patient at a time providing care where the patient calls home. While this often is a house or apartment, we also provide care at nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and hospitals. If a patient’s care needs are too complicated for home care or require a higher level of attention from nurses and other experts, we can provide care at one of our Hospice Care Centers. 


At BCN we are committed to a work setting that treats all team members with fairness, dignity, and respect. We offer our team members an opportunity to grow, to develop professionally, and to work in a team environment. You can help our team make a lasting difference for our families. Join #TeamBCN where your work matters, and your time is valued. 


We Offer:

  • Competitive Pay
  • Comprehensive benefits package
  • Autonomy in your workday
  • Flexible Schedules to support work/life balance (select positions)
  • Mileage Reimbursement for work-related driving
  • Up to 24 days of PTO accrued within the first year of employment
