Serving Sarpy and Douglas Counties, NRN is looking for bilingual respite providers who are interested in providing respite care for individuals with various needs and disabilities (and their families). No nursing or healthcare experience is required, although personal experience providing care for special needs patients is certainly helpful. Various languages are needed, especially in the Omaha area.
