We are searching for a pediatric nurse practitioner to join our established pediatric primary care practice. We are an independent practice with approximately 11,000 active patients, encompassing a very diverse population. We are looking for someone who wants to work in a team environment. Our providers see both scheduled patients for wellness and routine care, as well as walk-in patients for acute issues. We use a pediatric specific EHR system.
We are a certified Medical Home by the National Committee for Quality Assurance– an official indication of our understanding that medical care must meet each family's specific needs and dynamics. All of our team members, from our board certified physicians and nurse practitioners to our office staff, provide the highest level of pediatric care combined with compassionate concern for the overall welfare of our patients and their families.
We have several unique programs at our office for the management of certain problems and chronic conditions. Our Easy Breathers asthma program is lead by two of our NPs and certified asthma educators, and has a goal to connect with asthma patients and their families to help them better understand and manage their care. Our nutrition program partners one of our NPs with a dietician to manage a wide variety of patients’ nutritional concerns, including obesity, feeding tubes, diabetes, and failure to thrive.
Kids First is also home to the Chicago Breastfeeding Center, through which our providers and certified lactation consultants care for both moms and their babies. We believe in the importance of breastfeeding, and recognize that breastfeeding initially can be one of the most challenging parts of caring for a new baby, and yet, it can be one of the most rewarding aspects. We understand that every breastfeeding mother has different goals and unique circumstances. At every visit we seek to help mothers define and achieve their goals for breastfeeding. We provide a warm, caring environment to support and encourage mothers’ breastfeeding goals. We are looking for a Nurse Practitioner that has an interest in this unique program.
We offer competitive salaries based on experience, and excellent benefits:
- Medical, dental, and life insurance
- 401(k) with safe harbor contributions
- Paid time off (PTO)
- Annual CE allowance
- Professional liability insurance
Candidates must be currently licensed as a nurse practitioner in the state of Illinois, and have a current DEA.
