The College of New Rochelle seeks to fill the position of Assistant Director of Health Services, and this full-time, 12-month position is available immediately. We’re looking for a NYS licensed nurse practitioner who has the administrative skills and vision necessary to oversee the general operations for the Health Services area and provide direct services and emergency nursing care to students and the College Community. She/he will make decisions in consultation with our physicians regarding health care treatment, policy, and procedures. She/he will adhere to the highest professional and ethical standards in the delivery of comprehensive healthcare in a higher education setting.
The ideal candidate will be qualified and capable of assessing the physical, developmental, and psychosocial status of individuals using such processes of data collection as: history taking, physical examination, initiations and interpretations of screening and laboratory tests, and initiation of other diagnostic tests as determined by mutual agreement with the health services physician(s). She/he will assess the level of wellness of patients, and diagnose and treat real or potential health problems. The ideal candidate will coordinate administrative responsibilities with the Health Services staff; oversee all laboratory services; direct activities encompassing the maintenance and updating of departmental health records and manuals (i.e., databases, clearances, audits, policy and procedure, etc.); supervise and implement the practice guidelines set forth by the CDC, OSHA, CLIA, VFC, and NYSIS; and ensure institutional compliance with governmental regulations.
The successful candidate will have excellent clinical skills and decision-making abilities as well as the ability to provide leadership and direction for the Health Services area. The position requires an understanding of the collegiate environment and knowledge of prevalent health concerns. Understanding how to present health concerns and provide outreach is a plus. The position also requires seamless collaboration with the counseling staff and there will be some committee responsibilities (e.g., disaster committee, incident review committee.) The College academic calendar will dictate the need for flexible hours.
