Vein Clinics of America (VCA) is seeking a licensed Nurse Practitioner (NP) or Certified Physician Assistant (PA) to serve as a "physician extender"

In this role, the NP/PA will consult with patients regarding an appropriate course of treatment for the patient's varicose veins and/or venous insufficiency. This course of treatment might include the ultrasound guided Injections or endovenous laser treatments (EVLT) performed by the physician and/or the sclerotherapy, performed by the NP/PA, to treat surface veins.

Also in this role, the NP/PA will assist in practice development through professional networking and by participating in physician/practice/patient education activities, i.e. Lunch and Learns.

This position will require a significant level of independence and autonomy. The NP/PA will be developing a semi-independent "practice within a practice" while working in partnership with the VCA physician. This is an exciting opportunity that will allow the NP/PA to develop and hone a specialized set of skills, utilizing the safer, more effective and minimally invasive, treatment options that are available to patients today.

Job Requirements

EDUCATIONAL/LICENSURE/CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS:

  • Graduation from an approved NP/PA program

  • Meet state licensing requirements applicable to a practicing NP/PA.

  • Ongoing maintenance of professional licensures and Basic Life Support (BLS) certification.
