This position will include triage to assess clients’ health status for immediate care, clinical appointment, education for care at home, or referrals to resources.

We asked our Nurses what they appreciate about working at our Health Centers:
“Highlights for me include the ability to advocate for the patients who are often forgotten in the healthcare system. Making a difference in the community that I live in. Working within a care team, but also having the larger RN group to support as needed. Job variability – every day is different. Self-directed – you can tailor the job to your strengths and to the care team’s needs. Schedule flexibility for good work/life balance.”
