Lancaster, New Hampshire: We invite an experienced Family Nurse Practitioner to join the inpatient team of an established, respected critical access hospital in picturesque northern New Hampshire, near the White Mountain National Forest.

Enjoy a rewarding role with professional variety in this 25-bed hospital (3 are ICU beds) that serves residents from across the region.

This is a full time permanent position. The projected schedule is 4 nights/week (Mon-Thurs, 9pm-7am) though this may be flexible. You will be supported by a strong, collaborative team with a House Coordinator plus MAs, RNs, LPNs, an LNA Case Manager, and the On-Call Staff. This hospital partners with Dartmouth Hitchcock, Maine Med and Catholic Medical Center, so specialists are available for phone consults.
You will earn a competitive salary plus benefits including paid relocation assistance, paid liability insurance (with tail coverage), health and dental insurance, paid time off provided for vacations and personal time, more paid leave for your CME plus an expense budget, and participation in a retirement plan. Student loan repayment may also be available!
