North Country HealthCare AZ
  • Flagstaff, AZ, USA
  • Full Time

Ready for your next adventure?

Come to Flagstaff!


This full-time family nurse practitioner position will work part of the time in North Country's brick-and-mortar clinic and part of the time at our various specialty clinic locations throughout Flagstaff including The Guidance Center (a mental health facility), Summit High School, and area homeless shelters. Work in the Specialty Clinics will begin after at least 6 months of training and out-patient practice in our brick-and-mortar clinic. In both places, you will have the chance to work with people in great need of primary care and, in doing so, significantly support them in bettering their overall lives.


WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING

  • Diagnosing and treating acute (sometimes chronic) conditions of all aged patients, administering vaccinations, and performing follow-up exams. These patients will include those from homeless and student populations, but not exclusively.
  • Preventive care including educating patients and their parents in disease prevention and health maintenance.
  • Making referrals and coordinating patient care with staff and other providers.
  • Preparing of medical records, clinical reports, and correspondences.
  • Supervising medical professionals (nurses, physician assistants, and medical assistants).
  • Demonstrating continuous learning and eagerness for professional development.
  • NCHC is proud to be a teaching health center and physicians can expect to be involved with the teaching of students and residents.

WHAT YOU WON'T BE DOING

  • Feeling isolated -- an integrated care model reduces physician burn-out because it offers wrap-around services and programs beyond the exam room to care for your patients.
  • Paying for malpractice insurance or tail coverage -- as an FQHC, physicians are covered by the Federal Tort Claim Act.
  • Wondering if your job is meaningful -- you will see the positive impact you have on patients and the community regularly.

PREFERRED QUALIFICATION

  • Two full years of experience working as a family nurse practitioner in a primary care setting including experience with vulnerable and/or medically under-served populations.

Flagstaff is in sunny Arizona, but it is NOT the hot desert! At an elevation of 7000 ft., the city has a true four-season climate with two ski resorts (downhill and cross country) within 15 miles of town. Outdoor recreation is a year-round passion for most residents and includes hiking, road and mountain biking, climbing, and water sports at nearby Lake Mary, Lake Powell, Oak Creek, and many other local spots. Flagstaff's running community is nationally famous and growing. Home to Northern Arizona University, Lowell Observatory (where Pluto was discovered!), Gore Technologies, and a United States Geological Survey campus, the sciences contribute to the diverse economy and personality of the community. The walkable historic downtown district offers eclectic but relaxed shopping and dining. With all this, plus a museum and arts of all types, you'd have to try to be bored in Flagstaff!
