Lightyear Health is looking for an empathetic and tech-savvy Nurse Practitioner to become part of our growing company that improves the functional independence and quality of life for aging patients. This role comes with ample work/life balance as there are no overnight calls or weekends. 

We are a healthcare technology startup that is changing what it means to age. By delivering accessible, proactive, specialty care to post-acute care facilities, our aging patients and their caregivers can live a life of dignity, fullness, and joy. Using our proprietary technology and expertise in complex care, our team collaborates with individuals, families, and caregivers to design personalized care plans that address the holistic needs of each patient.

To help us achieve our mission, we are looking to hire a Nurse practitioner who envisions a world where every aging patient has access to the world’s best healthcare. This is a flexible role serving patients in the Tyler and Longview area and will report to our Director of PM&R APPs. 

As a key member of our PM&R team, here’s what you’ll do:

Key Outcomes:

  • Conduct roughly 15 in-person visits with patients daily in skilled nursing facilities, focused on quality of care.
  • Work with Physical Medicine and Rehab physicians to develop care plans and treatment recommendations for pain management and the improvement of functional and behavioral health in the geriatric populations.
  • Coordinate care and make treatment recommendations by attending weekly team meetings at skilled nursing facilities

We'll cover all additional details in the course of the interview process. The exact salary will depend on one’s census size, which is typically 15-18 patients per day. Providers who meet our rigorous standards for clinical care and are able to efficiently see more patients can see earnings increase proportionally, and all team members receive a stock option grant.
