LifeLong Medical Care has an exciting opportunity for a nurse manager to join our multi-disciplinary programs that provide complex medical and behavioral health care to people experiencing homelessness. The ideal candidate must commit to providing high-quality care for complex patients, dedication to building a collaborative team model of care, and have experience working from a trauma-informed care approach.
Under the general supervision of the Associate Medical Director and Center/Program Director, with the clinical guidance of the Director of Nursing, the Nurse Manager is responsible for managing all aspects of nursing care within LifeLong’s homeless services programs. The Nurse Manager will play an essential role in shaping nurse culture, developing our approach to recruitment and training, designing protocol and procedure, and collaborating with many stakeholders to deliver high-quality nursing care to people experiencing homelessness.
Clinically, the Nurse Manager will lead in developing, implementing, and training nursing care protocols designed to maximize the quality of care for our patient population. The Nurse Manager will provide ongoing consultation and collaboration with medical provider leadership to ensure continuity of care. The Nurse Manager will be expected to serve in a backup role for direct patient care when a team member is absent or needed by the program.
In addition to providing clinical care, the Nurse Manager is responsible for managing and supervising homeless services nursing staff, evaluating staff performance, leading nursing recruitment efforts, facilitating new nurse onboarding and training, collaborating with stakeholders around quality assurance and improvement efforts, and managing medical supply inventory.
