    NJ Memory & Behavioral Care is currently recruiting:
    - One full time Psychiatric Advance Practice Nurse to join our thriving private practice. 
    - Multiple per-diem Psychiatric Advance Practice Nurses to participate in our weekend on-call schedule. 

    - Full time position:
    The successful candidate will be responsible for initial and follow-up Psychiatric consults in select skilled nursing facilities (approx. 80 to 90% of weekly duties), as well as a small office-based practice (approx. 10 to 20% of weekly duties). 
    Daily patient encounters will be between 10 to 15, depending on the mix of initial vs. follow-up services.   We use streamlined, one page note templates which facilitate efficient workflow. We only “make recommendations” in our consults (rather than “write orders”).  
    There are no hospital-based services, no admissions, no discharges, minimal paperwork or administrative responsibilities beyond clinical documentation and billing submission. Participation in our on-call schedule will consist of 1 weeknight in 7 and 1 weekend per month – this is via phone only (no rounds).   
    Schedule is flexible, position affords much autonomy/independence – but at the same time, support and assistance is always available from our two board certified psychiatrists.  
    Compensation:  Choice of “Independent Contractor” or “Employee” contract structure is available.  We offer above market reimbursement up to $120,000 for Independent Contractors (based on resume/experience), PTO, Holidays.

    Per-diem weekend call position:
    Successful candidates will participate in our practice’s weekend on-call schedule.  This is via phone only.  No rounding.  Very light duties, with zero to two phone calls per weekend being typical.  Overnight phone calls are extremely rare (none in recent years).   Compensation: $80 per weekend, payable on 1099 (Independent Contractor) if you prefer.
