  • Overview

    St. Luke's Neonatology in Idaho is seeking a NNPs to join 11 BC Neonatologists and 11 NNPs to assist with coverage of one of our NICUs. This position is primarily based in Twin Falls, Idaho, which is in the process of expanding its scope of coverage to Level III status. 

     

    The Twin Falls NICU is a state of the art 18 bed private room facility built in 2011. It has an ADC of 6, approximately 230 admissions per year, and excellent potential for growth. Local MFM support is currently being recruited. While the home base for this NNP opportunity is in Twin Falls, the NNP would rotate regularly through the NICU at St. Luke's Children's Hospital in Boise. This provides an opportunity to maintain higher acuity skill sets as well as to maintain consistency in practice across the three Health System NICUs. Additionally, as part of this larger practice group, coverage for time off and conference travel is well-supported. The ideal candidate for this position is an experienced NNP with strong teaching skills and a desire to educate front-line staff to the higher skill set that a Level III NICU demands.

     

    The Children's Hospital provides a full complement of Pediatric Subspecialty services with the exception of ECMO or complex congenital heart surgery. The program is supported by a skilled Obstetrical department including 4 full time MFM specialists.
