Registered Nurse

 Full Time Position

 

Janian Medical Care, P.C., seeks a full time Registered Nurse for the Street Medicine Team.

Janian Medical Care, P.C., an affiliate of Center for Urban Community Services (CUCS) seeks a NYS Licensed Registered Nurse to join our Division of Nursing Services. Janian Medical Care provides primary medical, psychiatric, and nursing care to homeless and formerly homeless New Yorkers at community based programs including supportive and transitional housing, shelters, and homeless outreach teams. We are seeking a dynamic, collaborative Registered Nurse, who is dedicated to working with our complex and marginalized patients in non traditional settings. 

 

In July 2016 Janian launched The Street Medicine Team in Manhattan to provide primary care services to people experiencing street homelessness who are unable to access healthcare in more traditional settings. The initiative was quickly expanded to a second team serving similar clients in Brooklyn and Queens. In July of 2020, DHS announced it would again be expanding the initiative to address further need for such services. The team will work with people for as long as is necessary with a focus on quality of care provided over quantity of clients served. Each team consists of 1 NP/MD, 1 RN, and 1 MA/van coordinator. The teams work closely with outreach teams who identify and refer medically vulnerable clients.

 

Janian is widely recognized as a leader in the delivery and development of on-site healthcare services, offering staff a supportive work environment, expert supervision and support to encourage clinical excellence, and weekly protected time for professional development. We offer a competitive salary commensurate with experience and excellent benefits.

The Registered Nurse will have primary responsibility for improving the overall health of program participants including promotion of physical and mental health integration. The Registered Nurse will work with members of the multi-disciplinary Street Medicine Team and our outreach teams towards this goal by engaging in the following activities:

·         Conducting diagnostic and risk assessments and providing care in multiple settings including in institutional settings, participants’ homes, our medical suites, and on the streets

·         Providing clinical care, including administering medication and performing wound care, at the direction of the Street Medicine and onsite Primary Care Providers

·         Working collaboratively with patients to identify and overcome barriers to treatment

·         Linking participants to primary and specialty care

·         Participating in multidisciplinary team meetings

·         Liaising with pharmacies, hospitals and city agencies as needed
