Canada/USA Mathcamp is an academic summer camp. Each year, we hire an RN (or a licensed medical professional with comparable credentials) for a part-time position to serve as our Camp Nurse.
Dates & Location:
Monday, June 24 to Saturday, July 27, 2019
Lewis & Clark, Portland, OR
This is an ideal role for a school/university nurse who wants to keep working during the summer. (Individuals with further advanced degrees, such as FNPs, are also welcome to apply.) The on-campus hours are 8am - 10am, Monday through Saturday, plus on-call time by phone during the day all week. (You can expect just a few hours per week of daytime phone calls.) Regular hours are June 24 to July 27, 2019; plan on a few additional hours for orientation in the week before regular hours begin.
The camp nurse is the healthcare professional for our population of 120 students (ages 13 - 18) and 30 staff (adults of all ages, all 18+), providing adjunctive care while the students and staff are away from their primary care providers. Responsibilities will include:
In past years, the role has been very relaxed because the program is so small, so you will have plenty of time to yourself or to interact with the students and join program activities. With just two hours of commitment per day, you would also have the flexibility to have most of the day free. The pay will be $25/hour for an LPN and $30/hour for an RN. Your expected hours would be: 2 hours for reviewing medical records, 2 hours for staff training, 2 hours/day for 30 program days (60 hours), 5 hours on-call time, and 1 hour for wrapping up at the end of the program for a total of approximately $1750 (LPN) or $2100 (RN).
To apply, please prepare a cover letter and resume describing your interest in the role and relevant experience. Interviews will be conducted on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
