Summary of Job Duties:

The Registered Nurse in the GYN/Women’s Clinic provides direct patient care and provides other patient services in an ambulatory clinic setting. This nurse supports a team of three medical providers and is responsible for indirect supervision of assistive personnel as well as training and supervision of student workers and new staff. Responsibilities include, but are not limited to: Direct patient care: maintaining patient flow by preparing patients for and assisting medical providers with exams and procedures, performing telephone and walk-in triage, initiating lab and treatments per protocol, patient education, returning patient phone calls and web portal messages and administration of medications and immunizations. Indirect patient care responsibilities insurance pre-certification, prescription refill requests, maintaining recall logs for abnormal pap smears and lab results, community outreach activities, ordering and maintaining supplies and following infection control plan and procedures. Collaboration with nursing in Primary Care Clinic as needed. Other duties as assigned.
This position holds significant responsibility as a “remote essential” role. In challenging situations such as inclement weather or emergencies, when the Pat Walker Health Center or campus needs to close, our dedicated team of medical professionals will be on standby to serve our campus community’s needs through telehealth if deemed appropriate for the patient’s complaint.
The decision to conduct telehealth evaluations will depend on various factors, including the nature of the medical issue (in compliance with Arkansas State Medical Board regulations), patient preference, and the availability of resources. Our primary goal is to ensure that the UA community has access to quality healthcare even during unexpected closures.
To be fully prepared for such events, all staff members must take their UA issued laptops home nightly during the work week and each weekend. This way, they can readily assist with patient access and telehealth services if the medical clinics are unexpectedly closed during the following business day. By functioning cohesively as a team, our medical units will ensure that adequate medical care remains accessible to our UA community with each team member sharing this responsibility equally.
Regular, reliable and non-disruptive attendance is an essential job duty, as is the ability to create and maintain collegial, harmonious working relationships with others.
