Nurse Practitioner (Family) (Traveling)
North Country HealthCare
About the organization
THIS IS WHY YOU BECAME A FAMILY NURSE PRACTITIONER.
You became a family nurse practitioner so you could bring quality primary care to anyone who needs it. At North Country HealthCare, we practice this kind of medicine daily.
North Country HealthCare (NCHC) is transforming healthcare for rural Arizonans. NCHC is an outpatient, primary care, federally qualified health center with a teaching and learning mission. We started as a single, volunteer-run free clinic in 1991 and now serve 12 communities across the entire northern half of Arizona. We turn no one away. We practice integrated care in an innovative culture. Our model allows us to serve patients holistically. Simply put, at North Country HealthCare, you can practice medicine the way it should be practiced.
"One of the best parts is getting paid to travel to different North Country HealthCare clinics in northern Arizona while learning what each community's strengths are through the conversations and interactions with staff and patients."
--former FNP Traveler Lisa B.
"The best part of being a traveler is getting to see different parts of Arizona: trying different restaurants, seeing new sights, and also meeting new people. The clinics always appreciate that you are there to help and are thankful for the assistance. It is fun to see how all the different clinics work. Yet at the same time, it's not stressful because they are still NCHC clinics so they are still similar. It is a great experience."
--former FNP Traveler Rebecca L.
