Cottages of Lake St. Louis, the first Green House ProjectTM skilled nursing and rehabilitation community in Missouri, is looking for a bright, collaborative Director of Nursing to continue to establish Cottages as a premier and preferred “real home” for our beloved elders.  This is a high-profile position as an industry leader in innovative Resident-Directed Living.  Our full-occupancy community offers an excellent opportunity for career growth, as we add more Cottages and expand to other communities.

Our six ten-bedroom Cottages, including all private rooms with private bathrooms, each have a large, open kitchen where the cooking is done, a Hearth Room with fireplace that looks out the floor-to-ceiling windows on the secure patio and garden, a dining room with a single table, a spa, den, laundry areas and home office.  New, state-of-the-art equipment, resources and amenities are throughout the community.   The Green House Project has been referred to as the “pinnacle” of skilled nursing models. Its goals of “real home, meaningful life and empowered staff” are interwoven into all aspects of community life.  High staffing levels and dedicated assignments in each Cottage lead to “knowing” each elder, resulting in a low-stress environment and better health outcomes.

The Director of Nursing will be an advocate and spokesperson for the Cottages and should have a background and commitment to being a Culture Change leader.  The successful candidate will be organized and adaptive, able to hold others accountable but willing to coach and mentor to give them the tools and resources to accomplish the goals.  Excellent clinical knowledge and community relations, sound business operations, good regulatory knowledge and close resident family connections are required.  Candidates should be a Registered Nurse with experience as a skilled care DON or ADON.

We have assembled and continue to attract an excellent team of committed professionals who value the opportunity to be pioneers and leaders, eager to continuously improve this well-respected model.
