NJ Memory & Behavioral Care is currently recruiting:

A full-time Psychiatric Advance Practice Nurse to join our thriving private practice
We will also consider hiring part-time or per-diem for the consultation (not office-based) role, minimum 5 hours/week.   This role could be performed over evenings or weekends.
Full time position:

The successful full-time candidate will be responsible for initial and follow-up Psychiatric consults in select skilled nursing facilities (approx. 80 to 90% of weekly duties), as well as a small office-based practice (approx. 10 to 20% of weekly duties).

Daily patient encounters will approximately between 11 to 16, depending on the mix of initial vs. follow-up services.   We use streamlined, one page note templates which facilitate efficient workflow. We only “make recommendations” in our consults (rather than “write orders”). 

There are no hospital-based services, no admissions, no discharges, minimal paperwork or administrative responsibilities beyond clinical documentation and billing submission. Participation in our telephone based on-call schedule will consist of 1 weeknight in 7 and 1 weekend per month – this is via phone only, there are no on-call rounds.   Phone calls during on-call shift are infrequent.

Schedule is flexible, position affords much autonomy/independence – but at the same time, support and assistance is always available from our two board certified psychiatrists. 

Compensation:   We offer above market reimbursement starting up to $139,000, as well as full health benefits, generous PTO (including additional CME days), and national Holidays off.
