Aspire's clinicians are experts in providing patients with relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious illness; helping patients and caregivers navigate the healthcare system; guiding patients and caregivers through difficult and complex treatment choices; and providing emotional and spiritual support to patients and their families. Our core values are Clinical Excellence, Compassion, Teamwork, and Going the Extra Mile!

Our Nurse Practitioners play a vital role at Aspire - and this is an ideal choice for the individual who has the passion, devotion, and desire to impact the lives of the patients and families we serve in palliative care.-- Our NPs collaborate with our Lead Physicians, the patient's other physicians and providers, and their family members to develop complex plans of care in accordance with the patient's health status and overall goals and values.-- Aspire has a network of support in our Patient Care Center, which enables us to provide a comprehensive network of clinical and non-clinical support to you.-- In addition, our NPs take part in weekly interdisciplinary team meetings, call schedules and scheduled in-service and education sessions.

--
--
Our NPs educate patients and families about medication usage, side effects, illness progression, diet and nutrition, medical adherence and crisis anticipation and prevention.-- Each day, you will be in contact with other Aspire clinical team members, patients' other physicians and patients' other medical providers to coordinate optimal care and resources for the patient and his or her family - in a timely basis and consistent with state--regulations and Aspire Health standards and policy.--
You'll be supported along the way by our Patient Care Center, which provides another layer of interaction with the patient and patient families, and provides our NP's clinical and non-clinical administrative support.-- Each day, you'll maintain patient medical records and medical documentation consistent with state--regulations and Aspire Health standards and policy through our EMR system.-- Participate in continuing education as required by the state Board of Nursing. --Prescribe medication as permitted by the state Board of Nursing.-- Other related duties as deemed necessary.
