Job Description

VCU Health System's Neurology Department - Stroke Program is seeking a full time Nurse Practitioner. Advanced practice registered nurses (APN) demonstrate a high level of expertise in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of the complex responses of individuals, families, or communities to actual or potential health problems, prevention of illness and injury, maintenance of wellness, and provision of comfort. Assist the health care team with the prevention of illness and injury, maintenance of wellness, and provision of comfort. APNs continue to perform many of the same interventions used in basic nursing practice. The difference in this practice relates to a greater depth and breadth of knowledge, a greater degree of synthesis of data, and complexity of skills and intervention.
