Nurse Practitioner 100-1552

Reference Number

Island Health is seeking Nurse Practitioners (NPs) to join the new North Quadra Urgent and Primary Care Centre (NQUPCC). Eligible NPs are those who do not have a patient panel. The NP will work collaboratively with an inter-disciplinary health care team to provide culturally safe comprehensive and urgent primary care. Patient visits will consist of scheduled longitudinal full service and same day primary care patient visits. The NP will provide most services onsite but will also have the opportunity to provide virtual longitudinal care remotely.

Acting as the most responsible care provider the NP will establish a minimum patient panel for a diverse patient population. Initial attachment will focus on patients with complex care needs who have a strong need for a primary care provider. As a group of primary care providers, the NP will be expected to work in the onsite urgent primary care service, and also admit and follow longitudinal patients of NQUPCC at the Saanich Peninsula Hospital.

Island Health looks forward to supporting primary care providers and staff at this alternative payment site to provide innovative primary care services that are at the forefront of primary care improvement in BC. Modeled after best practices, primary care providers will have the opportunity to optimize use of virtual care and data from the clinic information system to improve patient care.

Start Date: As soon as possible

Additional Information: Part-time available (0.5 - 0.6 FTE)
