Nurse Practitioner/Physician Assistant (per diem)
Prima CARE is a 160-provider, physician-owned multispecialty group, based in Fall River, Massachusetts, currently employing more than 40 advanced practice providers. We are seeking an Advanced Practice Provider (NP or PA) to work in our Ambulatory Care Center (Walk-in Clinic) on a per diem basis.
The APP would see older adolescents and adults with minor illnesses and injuries, assuming independent responsibility for patient care commensurate with his/her experience, training, and confidence, with physician back-up, as required. The position is per diem, covering vacations and time off of our full-time walk-in staff, estimated at 25 days per year.
We are prepared to hire immediately and to begin the on-boarding and insurance credentialing so that the successful candidate can begin working as soon as possible. Experience is desirable with an ability to work confidently and independently. Fluency in Portuguese is particularly valuable in Fall River, but not required.
The APP will be an employee of Prima CARE, but will function as a member of a clinic-based patient- focused team. The candidate must be licensed in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, hold a valid Drug Enforcement Agency certificate, and hold a Massachusetts controlled substances registration. Compassion, maturity, and excellent communication skills are essential. Prima CARE uses eClinicalworks as its EMR and is an affiliate of the Steward Network. The practice has the full support of Prima CARE specialists and testing facilities, which are all on-site and readily-available. These include a full laboratory radiology department which are open to support the Walk-in Clinic.
Compensation is competitive. Fall River is in a lovely part of New England, surrounded by city, waterfront, suburban, or farmland communities. Twenty minutes from Providence, 45-60 minutes from Boston, and 30 minutes from Cape Cod and Newport, Fall River is an attractive location with a multitude of choices for home and recreation.
