Advanced Practice Registered Nurses / Physician Assistants
Babies delivered with love... We are offering a CNM internship for new/ recent grads needing more proctored delivery experiences. This is a one year position that we anticipate will develop into a permanent position for the right person. We are a collaborative, supportive and successful practice (1 OB/GYN MD, 1 NP, plus 2 to 3 CNM’s). We have an upscale office near the two San Luis Obispo hospitals (200 and 112 beds which are 3 miles apart) and two beautiful new satellite offices, 15 mi north in Atascadero and 12 mi south in Pismo Beach. We have a level III NICU as well as MFM’s for consultation. The local medical community is collegial and supportive of CNM’s. Both hospitals offer CNM delivery privileges. We are looking for a self-motivated, conscientious and fun to work with recent CNM grad who will complement our team. The successful candidate needs to be interested in full scope CNM practice including patient/prenatal education, well-woman care, contraception counseling, STD screening, office GYN, etc. This is envisioned as Monday through Friday office, with proctored call from home two nights per week and every 4th weekend. The mornings in the office post-call are rescheduled if you are busy at the hospital during normal sleep hours. Salary is $70,000/yr. Increased to $80,000 after 1 year. This position includes health, dental and eye insurance benefits. Current California license preferred, but not required. Bilingual in Spanish preferred, but not required. Our last three interns stayed on in full salary positions. Thanks to National Geographic, Oprah Winfrey and Reader’s Digest Magazine we have all heard that San Luis Obispo, California has been named the Happiest Place in America. SLO was also ranked the 3rd best city in America to live in (above Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Monterey, Newport Beach, Honolulu, etc.). San Luis Obispo is a quaint university town of 45,000 with a county population of 250,000+, is a major tourist destination with pristine beaches, nationally known wineries and wine festivals, 2 ocean harbors with large numbers of whales and sea lions visible from the beach, 4 large uncrowded lakes plus miles of beach and mountain trails for bikes, horses and hiking. Crime and pollution are almost non-existent. S.L.O. has the lowest tobacco smoking rate in the U.S. World class shopping is 90 minutes south in Santa Barbara. Scenic Highway 1 runs seventy miles north along spectacular beachfront cliffs to Big Sur, Carmel, Pebble Beach and Monterey. Yosemite and the High Sierras are 100 miles to the east. Cal Poly, the local state university with an enrollment of 20,000+ is nationally ranked in architecture, engineering and agriculture. Public schools are excellent with our local high school's academic decathlon team winning the California state championship recently after being finalists for many years. In our 20+years practicing in SLO, we have found the near frost-free climate to be close to ideal with warm winters and cool summers. It is warm enough here that we can take our kids for an after-work picnic dinner on the beach 10 months out of the year and still be within beeper-call response time to the hospital. If you are a new grad looking for a position that allows more proctored delivery experiences, enjoy working in a collaborative practice and would like a friendly small office setting serving a wide variety of patients, this could be your chance to become part of our unique practice.
