Under the direct supervision of the Associate Medical Director/Medical Director, the Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (PCNP) is responsible for conducting initial medical evaluations of new clients in residential, withdrawal management as well as outpatient branches within Protypes Pomona to ensure clients are medically stable to participate fully in Prototypes’ recovery plan. Furthermore, PCNP is also expected to identify clients that will benefit from Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) for substance use disorders such as buprenorphine or naltrexone and prescribe and follow up with clients for ongoing MAT services. The PCNP is responsible for completing a medical history, performing a physical examination, ordering and interpreting laboratory tests, and diagnosing and treating acute common illnesses and injuries within the scope of Incidental Medical Services (IMS). This will include managing curative treatment for uncomplicated Hepatitis C infections. If client requires further ongoing chronic medical management, PCNP is expected to work with residential staff so that clients can be referred to a primary care provider in the community. In the future, this care may be integrated within the Prototypes program in which case the PCNP would follow up with these patients and provide direct primary care. PCNP is also expected to help prescribe bridging medications as needed for clients until they can be connected to a specific primary care provider (30-60 days). PCNP should also feel comfortable providing first line management for patients with uncomplicated stable mental health diagnosis such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder or schizophrenia. Appropriate supervision will be available for consultation for management of more complex mental or physical health issues. As per contract, all staff hired MUST be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and have their booster shot. Job requires possession of DEA license and a Buprenorphine prescriber waiver (X-waiver).
