August 22, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmBy donation
Need Primary Health Care? Live in Victoria? The Victoria Health Co-op will be hiring a Nurse Practitioner in the fall of 2019. Do you want to be on the potential patient list? Know someone else who needs Primary Health Care? Come to an info session.
Nurse Practitioners are registered nurses with experience and advanced nursing education at the master’s level. NPs autonomously diagnose, treat and manage acute and chronic physical and mental illnesses.
As advanced practice nurses, NPs:
- analyze, synthesize and apply evidence to make decisions about their clients’ health care
- provide a comprehensive range of essential health services grounded in professional, ethical and legal standards within a holistic model of care
- work collaboratively with their clients to establish measurable goals, and identify and advocate to close gaps in health outcomes*
