Nurse Practitioner, Long Term Care -$5k Sign-On - Birmingham, AL(Job Number:702890)
Description

Nurse Practitioner – Complex Care
 
You’ve taken your skills to an advanced level.  You bring an enormous store of compassion and dedication to your work.  Now, it’s time to join one of the largest communities of Nurse Practitioners in the country as we build new solutions for an ever growing patient base. Serving millions of Medicare and Medicaid patients, Optum is the nation’s largest health and wellness business and a vibrant, growing member of the UnitedHealth Group family of businesses.
 
In this role, you will represent Optum as you provide primary care to patients in long term care settings; coordinate with their Primary Care Provider and facility staff to deliver high quality care on site. You’ll interact closely with the facility staff and providers throughout the community; educating, building relationships and showing leadership in how to best address the complex needs of the patient and family. This is a flexible, autonomous role that creates enormous satisfaction for the NP as you impact the care and comfort of our aging population.
 
Listen to our NPs describe their work: NP Careers Overview Video
 
Primary Responsibilities
  • Develop strong competencies in Palliative Care as you provide preventative and primary care for patients in assigned long term care facilities
  • Collaborate with primary care physicians, the nursing staff and the patients' families to coordinate care in the manner best suited to the patient’s needs
Consider this.  Success in the NP role requires learning how to strike a balance between clinical and customer service/business mindset. Your work within these independently owned/operated long term care facilities means that you represent us not just with our members and their families but also with the employees and leaders of each facility. Balancing how to work with, educate, and service the facilities’ staff while also providing the members with the clinical and caring attention can be a challenge.
