Deleware Survivor Pediatric Nurse Practitioner

Pediatric Nurse Practitioner -Create Suvivor Program Job

The Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children serves thousands of children from across the country and around the world. The hospital is a division of Nemours (Nemours.org), which operates one of the nation's largest subspecialty group practices devoted to pediatric patient care, teaching, and research. Whether it’s an outpatient visit, surgery, rehabilitation or emergency care, the duPont Hospital offers the highest level of care, delivered with compassion in a family-centered environment. The staff not only has distinctive training and expertise in pediatrics, but also works to involve family members as active participants in the care of their child.

Located just outside of Wilmington, Delaware, on 300 acres of parkland, the hospital offers the highest level of care in an environment especially geared toward children and a remarkably beautiful and tranquil setting in which to heal. Within the facility, a professional yet friendly atmosphere pervades – DuPont Hospital seems less like a hospital and more like a place kids visit to get better.

As an innovator, through this exciting opportunity, you can create a cancer survivorship program for children treated at the well-established pediatric oncology program at Nemours Wilmington. This program will be staffed by an APN and a senior pediatric oncologist and be supported by Social Work and our Cancer Care Coordinator team. All patients in remission more than two years after completion of cancer treatment will be seen in the Cancer Survivorship program. The successful candidate must work both independently and as part of a multidisciplinary team. In addition, the APN candidate will need to be self-motivated, an effective critical thinker, and have an interest in program development. This program will interact not only with pediatric providers within Nemours, but also with medical providers in the community as older patients prepare to transition to adult medical care. The APN will evaluate, manage and provide ongoing follow up for patients who are cancer survivors, as well as collaborate on further program development with other members of the Cancer Survivorship team.

Please contact me soon because this Job will not last long.
