    NYNJ Psychiatric Associates, a growing & vibrant psychiatric practice, is actively looking to hire a psychiatric nurse practitioner for our dynamic team of clinicians.  Are you interested in improving mental health outcomes & quality of life for geriatric populations?  

    • You will be joining a team of 7 nurse practitioners and 2 board certified psychiatrists.  We have been working in this treatment setting for over 10 years, so have extensive experience & will offer you a tremendous amount of support if needed (or relative autonomy if you are comfortable with the patients we serve).  
    • We focus on psychiatric medication management for older adults, living in assisted living facilities and nursing homes, or general adult patients that are in a sub-acute rehabilitation setting, post hospitalization.  We cover buildings in Bergen, Essex, Union, Middlesex, Hudson, & Passaic counties.   Our most active need is for Bergen, Passaic & Hudson Counties.
    • We would attempt to place you in buildings that are geographically close to your home or primary place of employment.  The position is very low stress, relative to some other positions in behavioral health care.  There are no on call duties, and your schedule has flexibility. 

    Imagine being on site for approximately 5-6 hours and then going home to do your documentation - yet receiving a full-time salary + benefits!
    • You will have administrative support, making your duties as focused & streamlined as possible.   You simply see the patient, and make your recommendations while on site. You can complete your documentation at home, and then upload your work for our administrative staff to process & send to the facility.  Our documentation is electronic, with all medical records uploaded to “the cloud”, enabling you to review records easily, and update your follow up notes quickly.   Our practice is very tech friendly, and we implement this technology to make all of the clinicians’ workflow very efficient.

    The position could be part time / per diem or full-time.  Our part time clinicians average $90-105 per hour.   Full time positions are salaried, and start at a base salary of $128 - $138k, depending on experience & expectations on patient volume.   We then implement a bonus program based on productivity.  (Some NP's prefer the lower base rate with lower patient volume expectations, but then easily make it up on the bonus). Full time includes 6 weeks paid time off, health insurance, dental & vision insurance, malpractice insurance, etc.  

    If you are interested in exploring this opportunity, please contact me directly:
