Your day.

As an Advanced Practice Provider in Neurosurgery you'll support five outstanding Neurosurgeons alongside four other APPs to provide top-notch care and patient experience. Throughout the day you'll collaborate with MAs and clinic nurses, the OR team, and our inpatient care team inside the hospital.

  • You would practice at St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction, CO
  • Your schedule will be split between the OR and clinic
  • You'll be on call one out of five weeks on a rotational basis with the other APPs

In this line of work every day is different, that's why you'll need to know how to:

  • Serve as a first assist to the neurosurgeons in the OR
  • Participate in the call schedule
  • See patients in clinic
  • Round on post-operative patients in the hospital

Your experience.

This team is open to training a new graduate, or someone new to surgery for the right candidate. In order to be considered, you must be:

  • passionate about Neurosurgery
  • enthusiastic about surgery and first assisting in the OR, in addition to seeing patients in clinic and in the hospital
  • willing to participate in taking call one out of every five weeks, which will include coming into work after hours and on the weekends
  • interested in investing in learning new skills in the OR, clinic, and the inpatient units
  • open minded to being trained and mentored by the surgeons and fellow APPs

We also require:

  • NP or PA licensure
  • Active, unobstructed Colorado medical license, or the ability to obtain one
  • Ability to successfully complete St. Mary's credentialing process

Your next move.

Now that you know more about being a Neurosurgery APP on our team we hope you'll join us. At SCL Health you'll reaffirm every day how much you love this work, and why you were called to it in the first place.
