Field Based Position - Visiting patients within the city of San Francisco, San Jose, & Oakland.


Our Nurse Practitioners 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.  We have 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.

  • Each day, you’ll maintain patient medical records and medical documentation consistent with state regulations and Health standards and policy through our EMR system. 
  • Participate in continuing education as required by the state where you reside.
