Geriatric Nurse Practitioner
We put YOU FIRST because you put patients first.
Geriatric Nurse Practitioner opportunity in Hartford, Connecticut.
Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center in Hartford, Connecticut—a member of Trinity Health, the nation’s second-largest nonprofit health system—is seeking a skilled Nurse Practitioner to provide geriatric care to our patients, chiefly in our outpatient Geriatrics Office Practice, and to a limited extent via home visits to the frailest such patients, and via consultations in our hospital. Our practice model empowers our caregivers to work at their highest level—and allows time for professional development and family life.
This position calls for an experienced Nurse Practitioner who values his or her patients above all else. This core value links our providers, making us the collaborative practice you’ve been looking for, predominantly in our outpatient clinics located within our hospital campus. You’ll be part of a dedicated team in our Section of Geriatrics that is co-located with Palliative Care, a group with an extraordinary esprit de corps, providing consultative rather than primary care in the nursing outpatient offices on-site, along with dementia care, pain and symptom management and psychosocial support to patients and families. Home visits and a limited number of inpatient in-hospital consultations round out the job description. The work will include crucial serious illness conversations including addressing goals of care. You will also help educate and supervise others—nurses, fellows, medical students and residents--and will be a core key team member in our geriatrics division along with our wonderful full-time faculty physicians. Certification in Geriatrics is strongly recommended; consideration will be given to candidates with prior experience in both outpatient and acute geriatrics.
In addition, you will participate in our use of patient data and statistics, and participate in setting standards and auditing patient care. This is an opportunity to demonstrate independent thinking as well as strong communication, leadership and organizational skills.Apply now
