The Team Nurse is a key member of the clinical team in each Iora clinic and partners with the other members of the clinical team (physicians, health coaches, social worker) to provide accessible, comprehensive, coordinated care based on longitudinal healing relationships. Each clinic has one Registered Nurse who reports to the Clinical Team Manager (an onsite, frontline manager).
