For Immediate Start: Hiring a Part-time NP with Interest in Internal Medicine/Infectious Disease in Kitchener-Waterloo.
I am excited to announce a part-time position (with potential for full-time) for a nurse practitioner keenly interested in working in the field of Internal Medicine/Infectious Disease in the Kitchener-Waterloo region in an ambulatory clinic setting.
The successful candidate will work as part of a multidisciplinary team under the direct supervision of an infectious disease specialist, and will work closely with a nurse with expertise in wound management, to provide inspired care to patients with lower extremity wounds and related conditions.
The ideal candidate would be an individual with the ability to communicate effectively both verbally and in writing with patients and other healthcare providers alike. Furthermore, the ideal candidate will be able to forge trusting longitudinal relationships with patients with a multitude of chronic conditions.
Responsibilities are expected to expand and will be commensurate with clinical experience, knowledge and judgment as the successful candidate grows into this role. The successful candidate will conduct patient histories, perform physical examinations, including wound-specific assessments, and perform select therapeutic interventions such as basic bedside wound debridement, once trained to do so. Prescription of select antimicrobials will be expected. Minor procedures or operating room experience would be considered an asset. So too would experience in general internal medicine.
The successful candidate will partake in ongoing on-the-job clinical training in evidence-based, high quality, patient-centred care paradigms, which will form the basis of a close collaborative Physician-NP mentor-mentee relationship.
Interested candidates are encouraged to submit expressions of interest including cover letter, CV, and contact information for 3 references to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants will be considered on an ongoing basis until the position is filled. This position is for an immediate start.
