Inova Children’s Hospital seeks two (2) full-time pediatric-trained Nurse Practitioners to care for well newborns in our newborn nursery. They will join a well-established team of 4 dedicated pediatric hospitalist physicians who admit, discharge and improve the quality of care for well babies in our nation’s fifth busiest obstetrical service. Opened in 2016, the new Inova Women’s and Children’s Tower houses a level 4 NICU with 24/7 Neonatology in-house support and sees more than 11,000 births per year on average. For full-time employment, anticipate 4 ten hour shifts per week, including weekend day shifts. While rounding on 15-18 babies per day, NPs will be expected to write orders and progress notes in our EMR, liaise with the pediatric hospitalist on-service, communicate with consultants, partner with lactation consultants, educate families and escalate ill newborns to the NICU when appropriate. At night, patients will be signed out to the pediatric hospitalist covering the nursery service. Opportunities to participate in advocacy, research and/or quality improvement are available. The ideal candidate will have outstanding communication skills, past pediatric clinical experience, and a positive attitude. No overnight call or delivery participation.
