Description :
The West Island Health and Social Services Center (WIHSSC) is currently looking for a Nurse Practitioner to fill a full-time rotating day/evening vacancy with the Aire ouverte team at CLSC LaSalle.

The mandate of Aire ouverte is to co-develop a network of integrated youth services by building partnerships with youths, families and caregivers, facilities and stakeholders from within the CIUSSS, as well as community organizations and other institutions. These services will address the mental, physical and sexual health needs (holistic approach) of vulnerable individuals between the ages of 12 and 25 and of their families/caregivers in a community setting that is welcoming and non-stigmatizing. Team members will therefore have an opportunity to:

Specialized Nurse Practitioners (SNP) are nurses who, upon completion of their graduate studies, have acquired advanced knowledge in nursing and who, through their training, are authorized to perform certain medical activities. They use their specialized and advanced knowledge and expertise to make complex decisions, based on a comprehensive and holistic approach, to address the needs of patients and their families in their specific area of expertise.
