Clinical Program Director, ARNP, Continence Clinic, FT, M-F
Nemours Children's Specialty Care, Jacksonville
Jacksonville, Florida

Nemours is seeking a Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP), Full Time, Monday through Friday, to be the Clinical Program Director for our Continence Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida.

As one of the nation's leading pediatric health care systems, Nemours is committed to providing all children with their best chance to grow up healthy. We offer integrated, family-centered care to more than 300,000 children each year in our pediatric hospitals, specialty clinics and primary care practices in Delaware, Florida, Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Nemours strives to ensure a healthier tomorrow for all children – even those who may never enter our doors – through our world-changing research, education and advocacy efforts. At Nemours, our Associates help us deliver on the promise we make to every family we have the privilege of serving: to treat their child as if they were our own.

At our three clinic locations in the Jacksonville area, Nemours is a leading provider of pediatric specialty care in north Florida with many of our pediatric specialists regularly recognized as the "Best Doctors in America®." We offer comprehensive, family-centered care in more than 30 pediatric specialties. Several of those specialties, offered in collaboration with Wolfson Children's Hospital, have been named among the best in the country by U.S. News & World Report.

This is an innovative, exclusively nurse-run referral program for care of children with incontinence and dysfunctional elimination. It is the first program to combine subspecialty services (urology, gastroenterology and psychiatry) in a single point of care for this population and the first independent nurse-run referral practice in a freestanding pediatric subspecialty clinic setting. This nurse-run integrated model represents a compelling new idea that has the potential to deliver better health, improve care for a vulnerable population with specialized needs, and lower costs of outpatient clinical service. The program is staffed by RNs and ARNPs and provides evaluation and management services. Procedures include EMG uroflow, urodynamics and high-resolution anorectal manometry. Animated pelvic floor biofeedback is offered for treatment of children with dyssynergia. The ARNP staff has procedural responsibilities and actively co-manages patient care. The expectation is care will be evidence-based. The position will include mentoring students and participating in research. Organizational expectations include participation in Shared Governance. This position also has administrative responsibilities that include collaboration with nursing and organizational administration and assisting with preparation and management of operating and capital budget. This ARNP will assist in the oversight of the Continence Clinic. This is a full-time, Monday through Friday, salaried position.
