Do you have compassion and a passion to help others? Transforming healthcare and millions of lives as a result starts with the values you embrace and the passion you bring to achieve your life's best work.(sm)  

 

Our Palliative Care and Bridges in Complex Care team is seeking a Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant to work in a Palliative Care home health setting in Southern San Antonio.

Our palliative care program provides care for some of our sicker patients - patients whose needs are beyond what our care management and clinic-based resources can provide, but for whom hospice services are not appropriate. 

The schedule is Monday through Friday, 8:00am-5:00pm; however, every day will be different so flexibility will be needed. The ability to communicate well with other providers, patients, and family members is also essential for this role. We will provide significant training, 3 to 4 months on our model of care. 


Primary Responsibilities:

 

  • The NP or PA is expected to be able to provide care consistent with their licensure and/or certification
  • Diagnoses and treats both acute and chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, kidney disease and other chronic medical conditions.  The NP or PA will also treat acute conditions such as minor injuries and other acute medical conditions such as infections or exacerbations of chronic diseases
  • Orders and interprets diagnostic lab work, x-rays, EKG
  • Prescribes medications and other modalities of treatment as needed to treat those conditions listed above
  • Counsels patients on various disease conditions they may be treating to ensure that the patient is educated to their disease process, treatment, and expected outcomes
  • Works as an integral part of a comprehensive and collaborative team in order to provide quality evidenced-based care to our patients
  • Performs all other related duties as assigned

 

You'll be rewarded and recognized for your performance in an environment that will challenge you and give you clear direction on what it takes to succeed in your role as well as provide development for other roles you may be interested in.
