Advanced Practice Registered Nurses / Physician Assistants
St. Luke's Neonatology in Idaho is seeking a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner to join 11 BC Neonatologists and 15 NNPs to assist with coverage of our Twin Falls NICU.
The Twin Falls NICU is a state of the art 18 bed private room facility built in 2011. It has an ADC of 7, approximately 230 admissions per year, and excellent potential for growth. Local MFM support is currently being recruited. While the home base for this NNP opportunity is in Twin Falls, the NNP would rotate regularly through the NICU at St. Luke's Children's Hospital in Boise. This provides an opportunity to maintain higher acuity skill sets as well as to maintain consistency in practice across the four Health System NICUs. Additionally, as part of this larger practice group, coverage for time off and conference travel is well-supported. The ideal candidate for this position is an experienced NNP with strong teaching skills and a desire to educate front-line staff to the higher skill set that a Level III NICU demands.
The Children's Hospital provides a full complement of Pediatric Subspecialty services with the exception of ECMO or complex congenital heart surgery. The program is supported by a skilled Obstetrical department including 5 full time MFM specialists.
Graduation from a School of Nursing, passing results on the certification examination administration by an organization recognized by the Idaho Board of Nursing, and a Nurse Practitioner Program with current RN, APRN and controlled substance licensure from Idaho.
Current, unrestricted DEA certificate.
Current national certification as NNP. Exception: Flex NNPs will not be required to maintain Idaho Controlled substance licensure or unrestricted DEA certificate.
