Current Job Opportunities
Mobile Unit Nurse
Description of work:
We are looking for a registered nurse to help with clinical tasks during our weekly mobile medical clinics, as well as helping with referrals after the clinic. This is a part-time, seasonal position and will require approximately 10 hours/week from May – October. The bulk of these hours will be on Tuesday evenings (6-11pm). Candidate must be able to travel to our office in Benson and arrive by 6 pm for travel to camp locations. The work will be performed in rural, often remote locations. Most of our mobile medical clinics take place in farmworker camps, and staff must be comfortable working outdoors, sometimes in less-than-ideal weather conditions. Work may also entail additional hours to assist outreach workers with scheduling follow up visits and referrals, but these hours would be more flexible and could potentially be performed remotely.
Job duties will include:
- Attending mobile clinics in Johnston and Sampson counties on Tuesday evenings during our outreach season (May – October)
- Assisting attending providers with medical tasks during the clinic
- Assisting outreach workers with intake and screening of farmworker patients (vitals, blood glucose testing, basic health questionnaires, etc)
- Documenting all encounters and patient information on appropriate forms
- Supervising nursing student volunteers
- Assisting outreach workers with referrals
- Conducting health education with farmworkers during clinics
- Assisting with inventory and ordering of medical supplies
Required skills and training:
- Registered nurse
- Bilingual English/Spanish
- Ability to communicate well with diverse audiences, including farmworker patients, community health workers, providers, and students
- Experience working with farmworkers or rural Spanish speaking patients preferred
This position will pay hourly at $25/hour. We will also reimburse candidate for purchasing malpractice insurance.
