Could you be our next Trauma Nurse Practitioner at Lankenau Medical Center?

Why work as a Nurse Practitioner - Trauma  with Main Line Health?

  • Make an Impact! As the Nurse Practitioner, you would perform acts of medical diagnosis or prescription of medical therapeutic or corrective measures in collaboration with attending physicians and residents. As an advanced practice nurse, this role involves independent judgment and decision-making as well as consultation and collaboration with other members of the health care team. You would enhance the continuity of quality patient care; amplify communication between the physician, family members, and the health care team; and extend the capabilities of the medical care team. Since this is a Perioperative Nurse Practitioner role, you would be required to perform clinical procedures outlined by the individual department requirements. Overall, this position is critical in leading quality and evidence-based care initiatives that will result in achieving optimal patient outcomes and improved patient satisfaction. Lankenau is Level II Trauma  Center.
