Job Description

Company: Oak Street Health

Title: Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

Oak Street Health is a innovative network of neighborhood integrated primary care centers in Chicago and the Chicago suburbs, focused on providing high quality care to adults. We are not concierge medicine: we offer this high level of service to our patients at no additional cost to them; it's covered by Medicare regardless of their ability to pay. Oak Street Health is a growing and nationally recognized health care organization that operates under a value based managed care model with proven successful patient outcomes.   We offer great support to patients including transportation to and from appointments. The hospitalization rate of our patients is 40% under the national average. Our facilities are all new, designed around this model of comprehensive, personalized, integrated primary care. We use cutting edge technology and population health tools to improve care quality and make life easy for our providers. Oak Street Health is the future of medicine, where care is coordinated thoughtfully and providers are rewarded for personalized care. Our goal is not volume or billing/claims: it's quality. We agree that excellent care means low hospital admissions, great preventive medicine, and a delightful patient experience. 

We have taken steps to place value on the contributions of nurse practitioners in our organization which has included the appointment of nurse practitioners as medical directors of clinics.  We are looking for nurse practitioners who are intrinsically motivated to provide this kind of excellent care for our patients. We recognize the importance of treating the whole person, which is why we have mental health professionals on our integrated team including psychiatric nurse practitioners, psychiatrists, and behavior health clinical social workers who work with our  primary care providers, which include physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.

Oak Street Health is looking for a full- or part- time Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner to provide psychiatric care for our patients attending our primary care clinics. We provide the opportunity to see patients by telepsychiatry with flexibility to see patients in clinic as well or a combination.  In clinic visits will be conducted in one of our Chicagoland area clinics. Tele-visits may be conducted from a home office or location of the Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners choice, provided it has reliable access to phone and internet.

Tele-visits are conducted remotely through a HIPAA-compliant, user friendly telemedicine web application. There is some flexibility on hours worked but are generally normal business hours Monday to Friday and no weekends. This is a salaried, non-productivity-based role.  (non-productivity base salary with potential for an additional annual bonus?) We provide adequate time periods to see patients as well as administrative time.

The Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner role offers a unique opportunity to work collaboratively with the patient’s behavior health clinical social worker, which offers great support to the patient as well as the clinician. Telepsychiatry visits are integrated visits with the patient and the behavioral health clinical social worker present in clinic together for the visit. 

Additionally we offer a robust training and mentoring program for nurse practitioners tailored to the needs and experience level of our new providers.  Mentoring with an experienced psychiatric nurse practitioner will be available weekly and on an as needed basis for the first few months and then periodically after that for case consultations and support.  For those new to telepsychiatry, you will train in person with an experienced psychiatric nurse practitioner and initially see patients together. We will provide you the necessary equipment and you will receive adequate technical support for telepsychiatry.  

Ideal candidates will be:

  • Passionate about their work, eager to have fun with our team, motivated to be a part of a fast growing organization.
  • Experienced in outpatient psychiatry but new graduates will be considered
  • Comfortable with coexisting substance abuse and mental health disorders but additional training in this area will be provided as needed
  • Interested in the underserved community
  • Have an active, non-probationary Illinois medical license.
  • Have a work hard/play hard mentality.
