**APP (NP, PA) - Neurocritical Care

Job Description:

The Neurocritical Care team at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center is seeking to grow by hiring an additional Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant.  We are currently a team of 5 neurointensivists and 9 Advanced Practitioners who staff a 9-bed Neurosciences Critical Care Unit (NCCU). This position is available immediately.

The Advanced Practitioner hired for this position will function as a primary critical care Advanced Practitioner in the NCCU in collaboration with attending neurointensivists.  The NCCU admits adult patients with critical illness due primarily to neurological and neurosurgical problems, including post-neurosurgical and post- neurointerventional patients.  Key duties will include history taking; physical assessment; development and implementation of diagnostic and therapeutic plans; interpretation of physical exam laboratory, imaging, and physiologic data; clinical documentation; and invasive procedures including arterial and central venous line placement.

The successful candidate will have received some formal training in critical care; be dedicated to the delivery of outstanding care to patients and their families; have excellent interpersonal skills; have the ability to function semi-autonomously in the care of challenging, neurocritically ill patients; and have enthusiasm for the teaching, learning, and quality improvement necessary for the continued development of our growing neurocritical care program.  Experience as an Advanced Practitioner in neurocritical care or another type of critical care is ideal, but not required. Research and teaching opportunities are available if desired.
