About the Job

The Neurocritical Care team at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center is seeking to hire additional Nurse Practitioners or Physician Assistants to staff our expanding Neurosciences Critical Care Unit (NCCU).  Currently consisting of 5 neurointensivists and 7 Advanced Practitioners in a 6-bed NCCU, the program is preparing to expand to staff a planned expansion to 10 beds.  Positions are available immediately, allowing for orientation and training prior to opening the expanded unit.  Advanced Practitioners hired for this position will function as primary critical care Advanced Practitioners in the NCCU in collaboration with attending neurointensivists.  The NCCU admits adult patients with critical illness due primarily to neurological and neurosurgical problems, including post-neurosurgical and post- neurointerventional patients.  Key duties will include history taking; physical assessment; development and implementation of diagnostic and therapeutic plans; interpretation of physical exam laboratory, imaging, and physiologic data; clinical documentation; and some invasive procedures including arterial and central venous line placement.

Diversity is a core value at Beth Israel Lahey Health. We are passionate about building and sustaining an inclusive and equitable working and learning environment for our staff. We believe every member on our team enriches our diversity by exposing us to a broad range of ways to understand and engage with the world, identify challenges, and to discover, design and deliver solutions.




The successful candidate will have received some formal training in the ICU setting; be dedicated to the delivery of outstanding care to patients and their families; have excellent interpersonal skills; have the ability to function semi-autonomously in the care of challenging, neurocritically ill patients; and have enthusiasm for the teaching, learning, and quality improvement necessary for the successful expansion of the neurocritical care program.  Experience as an Advanced Practitioner in neurocritical care or another type of critical care is ideal, but not required. Research and teaching opportunities are available if desired.
