Advanced Practice Registered Nurses / Physician Assistants
Polson, Montana -- St. Joseph Medical Center is seeking a nurse practitioner with an interest in managing chronic narcotic pain patients to join our team in beautiful western Montana. Great opportunity to work collaboratively with clinic providers and local pain clinics to identify the best possible care for chronic pain patients. The new NP will insure that patients are compliant with system and clinic standards related to the use of narcotics and will also explore alternative treatment options. New grads are welcome to apply. Strong preference for background in working with pain patients and/or prior experience in adult medicine. Excellent compensation and benefits, and unbeatable quality of life in the heart of the Rockies.
Polson is located within the Flathead Indian Reservation on edge of the largest and arguably most beautiful body of fresh water in the West. Flathead Lake, the geographic centerpiece of this part of Montana, is framed by some of the Rockies' most scenic and spectacular subranges, including the Mission, Salish and Swan Mountains. Life moves at a slower pace here but it is anything but boring. From hiking, hunting and fishing to famous car shows and other community events, residents clearly don't take each other or their amazing natural surroundings for granted. There is a rich cultural heritage in Polson as well, both in terms of its "wild west" history as a cattle and logging town and its more distant history as the native lands of the Salish, Kootenai and Pend d'Oreille peoples. Museums, parks and a cultural center preserve the ways of the past. Living history is also apparent in the form of Native American people and events as well as cattle ranches and farms that continue to operate in the area.
St. Joseph Medical Center is a 22-bed critical access hospital serving a widely dispersed population in beautiful northwest Montana. Through innovative partnerships including a visiting specialists program, we are able to provide advanced care while maintaining the personal attention to each patient that has been a hallmark of our care for more than a century. St. Joseph has especially close ties to St. Patrick Hospital, Providence's 247-bed tertiary center located 65 miles away in Missoula.
