Healthcare System seeks to add another Nurse Practitioner to their team. The NP will provide patient care and treatment in Radiation/Oncology Medicine. The candidate will work independently, but closely with the radiation oncologist and be involved in initial evaluation, patient education, management of active treatment patients, follow-up of previously treated patients, and survivor-ship care.
The NP needs to have strong communication skills, patient centered care, and the desire to work in a focused sub-specialty of an oncology environment. Radiation oncology is an outpatient hospital-based clinic, and there is no call required for this position. The candidate would have the opportunity to guide the development of this position, as it is a new role in radiation oncology.
The group prefers an experienced Oncology NP, or they will train a recent graduate NP with some experience as an RN working in oncology and/or an oncology preceptorship.
The group prefers candidates that have ties to the upstate New York area. The location is a convenient drive to the Binghamton area.
Compensation: Competitive compensation package. Additionally, there is a full benefits package (vacation, medical, dental, STD, LTD, pension etc.). Also, relocation and/or sign-on are available.
