Providence Health & Services Nurse Practitioner Palliative Care in Kodiak, Alaska

Description:

Kodiak, Alaska – Seeking an exemplary, autonomous Palliative Care (PC) nurse practitioner who is interested in working in a unique and beautiful rural location. Ideal candidate will have a passion for rural medicine, will value collaboration with Primary Care, and will strive for extraordinary continuity of care. In addition to the nurse practitioner, the staff includes a half-time medical assistant dedicated to Palliative Care. Assistance from other disciplines from the hospital staff is available as needed. Full-time position with desirable Monday - Friday schedule with standard clinic hours and on-call hours. Competitive compensation, comprehensive benefits, and relocation bonus are available. Experience in palliative or hospice care is highly preferred, but those with little experience and new graduate practitioners are welcome to apply. Responsibilities will include coordinating and providing patient care in inpatient, outpatient and community settings. Join the dedicated and compassionate group of providers at Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center, and enjoy the many benefits of working within a supportive and close-knit community. Experience all that the beautiful and scenic state of Alaska has to offer from the welcoming community of Kodiak.

As the only hospital on Kodiak Island, Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center is the sole provider of acute and emergency care. Accredited by The Joint Commission and designated as a Level IV trauma center by the State of Alaska, this 25-bed Critical Access Hospital plays an indispensable role in the lives of nearly 14,000 residents in the city of Kodiak, the Coast Guard base and neighboring villages. With an MRI, 64-slice CT and other state-of-the-art equipment, our physicians and a cadre of visiting specialists are able to provide advanced care right here in Kodiak. The hospital receives high marks from patients, physicians and employees alike.

Alaska offers financial, cultural and recreational opportunities beyond compare, plus there is no state income or sales tax! Kodiak is famous for its fishing, huge Kodiak brown bears and lush mountains. But Kodiak Islanders also pride themselves on lesser known features: excellent public and private schools, organized youth sports, several churches, museums, and dozens of community events. The island’s tight-knit population of 14,000 residents is surprisingly diverse, with significant groups of Alaska Natives, Asians, Hispanics and Pacific Islanders. Nature is never far away in Kodiak. Within minutes of the hospital you can be beachcombing, jogging through a magnificent forest, or fighting a feisty salmon on a pristine stream.
