Summary

Vacancy Identification Number (VIN): 1993723

OUR MISSION: To fulfill President Lincoln's promise – "To care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan" – by serving and honoring the men and women who are America's Veterans. How would you like to become a part of a team providing compassionate care to Veterans?

We are filling one intermittent Registered Nurse position for the Medical Mobile Unit.

The Kansas City VA is embarking on a journey of moving beyond performance measure and becoming the Healthcare System Veterans Trust and Choose.

Our patients depend on us and we depend on professionals like you.

If you are interested in being a part of a LEAN organization and putting other's needs before your own this may be the organization for you. Yours might be the first face they see when they come through our doors. Yours might be the voice they hear right after a surprise diagnosis.  Yours might be the eyes they look into as they are pushed in a wheelchair to a frightening procedure.  Your attitude reflects us and everything we are proud of in this organization. By applying for this position you have chosen to help serve our patients and we appreciate you.

With the initiation of cultural change, along with knowledge and tools for change, the Kansas City VA will continue to move towards a practice of continuous improvement.  In the endeavor, we recognize that this change will not occur suddenly, that dedicated individuals like yourself will be required, that leadership involvement is necessary, and employee engagement paramount. 

As a 157 bed medical, surgical, and psychiatric facility, the Kansas City VA provides comprehensive health care through primary care and tertiary care in subspecialty medicine, surgery, psychiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation. It is also a teaching hospital affiliated with the University of Kansas and the University of Missouri Kansas City. Take a closer look at Kansas City at www.thinkkc.com.

VA encourages persons with disabilities to apply. The health related positions in VA are covered by Title 38, and are not covered by the Schedule A excepted appointment authority.  

Duties

The Patient Aligned Care Team (PACT)  RN uses the nursing process and evidence-based practice to collaborate within the Teamlet (Patient, Primary Care Provider, RN Care Coordinator, LVN or Health Technician, and Medical Support Administrator) and larger Team (family/caregiver, internal and community-based services involved in providing care to the patient) that promotes execution of the patient-driven holistic care plan.  As a member of the Teamlet, the PACT RN is responsible for collaborating with services internal and external to the VA to facilitate care transition in order to effectively meet the patients' needs. The  PACT RN provides patient and family health education with a focus on self-management, prevention, and wellness, based on the patient's goals. The PACT RN serves as an advocate for patients, team player to colleagues as she/he continues to enhance his/her own and the team's professional growth, development and practice.   The  PACT RN effectively executes nurse-driven clinics for appropriate patient populations in order to support positive health outcomes for veterans.  

NOTE:  Duties include driving the mobile medical unit and performing routine minor vehicle maintenance such checking fluids, tires and generator mileage.  You must have a valid state driver's license and be willing to take additional driver's training.
