The Nurse Practitioner delivers defined patient care services in a COVID testing site. ONLY NP WILL BE CONSIDERED - NO PAs FOR THIS ROLE. This is a COVID testing role in a location in a retail setting. Important information about the POCT NP Role: POCT NPs will be operating under their RN license for the entire duration of the assignment since their sole job function will be performing COVID-19 testing. In EPIC (electronic health record), POCT NPs' credentials will identify them as an RN and not an NP. This is not an error and should not attempt to be changed. POCT NPs will be working with an additional Provider (NP/PA) who will provide oversight, finalize results, and cosign orders. POCT NPs are required to sign the POC Tester Limited Service Attestation that reiterates the job description, specifies the testing role, and reiterates the expectation of working under the RN license. The attestation must be signed prior to starting the assignment. Additional details to remember: POC NPs will be required to test patients for COVID at a testing site. The most common testing model is a kiosk located outside Client retail location. Typically there are 5 patients scheduled per hour. This is NOT a work from home role nor is it a vaccination administration role.

Or, in select states, Masters of Science in Physician Assistant Studies (or other health-related Master's Degree in conjunction with Bachelor's of Science in Physician Assistant Studies) with current National Board Certification and State of Employment license to practice in the role required.
