The Division of Cardiovascular Medicine has an exciting opportunity for a Nurse Practitioner to join the Advance Practice Team in Consultative Cardiology at a new practice location at HUP Cedar, formerly Mercy Hospital.
This is a unique opportunity to develop a new role and work in both the inpatient and outpatient settings. Outpatient responsibilities include care for patients with cardiac diagnoses like CAD, atrial fibrillation, valvular disease, heart failure, and structural heart disease. This will be achieved through office visits, review of testing, phone triage, and ongoing patient follow-up. There will be a combination of independent practice as well as collaborative clinics with a physician partner. Inpatient responsibilities will include daily rounds on cardiovascular patients.
This position requires a high level of independence but is well supported with a collaborative and multi-disciplinary practice model. The high acuity clinical practice setting is dynamic, fast-paced, and high pressure. Excellent critical thinking, organizational, and communication skills, as well as a strong medical/pharmacology/nursing knowledge are essential. In this role there will also be a tremendous professional growth potential and the opportunity to participate in Penn Medicine’s tripartite mission of clinical care, research, and education. Members of the team participate in a full range of quality initiatives, are encouraged to become active members of professional societies like the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the American Heart Association (AHA).
All nurse practitioners will function under the guidelines as designed by the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center medical staff guidelines and are credentialed through that body. The CRNP hired by the Department of Medicine, Division of Cardiology will be held accountable through a formal job description, through the delineation of privileges, and through their agreement with their collaborating/supervising physician who has initiated a Collaborative Practice Agreement.
