Student nurses are trusted professionals who are committed to the care of others. Who better to trust with the well-being of your precious little ones?
Why choose SITTERNEEDED?
SITTERNEEDED exclusively hires and trains nursing students from accredited nursing programs. We believe this combination of health care education and childcare-specific training adds up to the highest quality babysitting option available.
In nursing school, students are encouraged not to work in order to focus on the program. And while I understand that recommendation, it is not in line with reality for many students who share my experience in which work is required to fund school. Therefore, flexible work is vital for so many, and babysitting is a perfect option as the hours are variable and the work is meaningful to the community. I knew this would be a great resource for both students and families, but as I graduated nursing school, I launched myself into my nursing career, and my vision was tucked away in a folder that would travel with me for the next 15 years.
My focus was in the area of pediatric cardiology, working as a bedside nurse on the night shift for five years while raising my son. As a working single mom, I knew my business idea would benefit families, but I had no experience in business. Five years into my career, I moved into a Clinical Educator position wherein I was responsible for the training oversight of new grad nurses as they transitioned from school to their first nursing roles. It was at this time that I also returned to school to obtain my Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree (BSN). I and many of my new grad nurses were working through similar struggles to find trusted childcare while working hospital hours that fall outside of the normal hours of a daycare facility. I saw everyone doing what they could to make childcare work but wishing that there was a better option.
My roles in nursing leadership along with my overall years of experience have been instrumental in the development of SITTERNEEDED today. All elements of my background, education and experience along with my personal love and passion for families and nursing have been poured into this company, and I’m excited to present it to our community.
