Nocturnist Acute Care Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant – North Dallas, TX

To our prospective teammates,

I have been with Sound Physicians for 6 years and am the Regional Medical Director for the South Region. I want to share more about who we are and what we do — specifically about our people, practice, and purpose — as you consider your next steps:

People
  • Our team is culturally diverse, representing multiple nationalities and an equal balance of male and female members. We promote a caring environment, value each other’s well-being, and seamlessly collaborate across different hospital departments to achieve shared objectives.
  • I aim to lead by example, prioritizing a sense of camaraderie among my direct reports. Emphasizing teamwork, I hold myself to the same standards I expect from my colleagues, valuing adaptability, openness for feedback, and a commitment to bettering our performance for the benefit of our patients.
  • Our dedicated providers are committed to providing patient-centered care to all stakeholders in a positive way.
  • Sound is focused on equitably providing quality care to the patients in the communities we serve, providing a structured and predictable work environment. My decision to pursue the medical director role was fueled by my aspiration to elevate the standard of care to a greater extent.
  • Denison, Texas, located about 40 minutes from north Dallas, offers a charming escape from the urban bustle while maintaining a close connection to the greater Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. Known for its historical significance and natural beauty, Denison provides a unique blend of small-town warmth and convenient access to the amenities and opportunities of North Dallas.
Practice

  • In the evening, you’ll be managing cross-coverage calls, but you’ll have backup from two dedicated nocturnists who are there to support you.
  • ACLS and BLS certification is required.
  • We utilize Cerner, which has access to Sound’s internal informatics platform.
  • Benefits include medical, dental, vision, life, and AD&D insurance, long- and short-term disability, 401k with match, paid medical malpractice and tail coverage, and annual CME allowance.
  • We accept ACNP and PA candidates for the role.
  • The base salary is $150k along with a $5k productivity and a $10k quality bonus
  • Excellent APP onboarding training is available.
Purpose
  • Many team members serve in various committees such as the medical executive, utilization management, quality review, sepsis, and stroke.
  • We operate as a well-organized team, providing updated systems, teaching tools, and educational programs facilitated by Sound.
  • Patients are at the core of everything we do; their well-being is our top priority.
  • Growth and development are hallmarks of Sound’s practices. Team members have opportunities for career advancement both locally and within our broader medical group.
  • Our team is deeply committed to our community. We encourage team members to contribute within and outside the hospital to enhance the well-being of our local community.
