Consider a career in a state-of-the-art Urgent Care & Occupational Medicine facility with a team of highly trained staff, no call or late nights that also offers you the opportunity to advance your career within a highly respected practice!

As the Midwest Leader in Urgent Care with over 50 clinics in Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin, Physicians Immediate Care is actively seeking an experienced Physician Assistant that will provide compassionate and high-quality treatment for both urgent care and occupational medicine patients.

Despite this unfortunate pandemic, we have continued to experience growth and opened several new clinics throughout the Midwest without furloughing any of our team. We have also heavily invested in implementing additional safety precautions for our team and patients' health and well-being during our expansion in the Midwest market.

Physicians Immediate Care is an organization that puts patients first with our Care From The Heart approach. We treat patients on-the-spot, ensuring they will not have to make another trip, wait in another line, or pay multiple co-pays. Our clinics feature full radiology suites, we perform CLIA waived labs onsite, and have fully functional procedure rooms to routinely treat patients of all ages with infections, lacerations, sprains, and fractures.

If you love procedures, you have come to the right place!

Our patients know we don’t just triage and refer, we treat complex illnesses and injuries. Our goal is to be the one stop provider for many of our patients. From strep throat to fractures to two layer laceration repairs we teach and encourage the skills needed for you to succeed. As a Nurse Practitioner you will perform procedures such as digital blocks, nerve blocks, minor outpatient surgical procedures such as extensor tendon repairs, wound closure and management, incision and drainage, punch biopsy, aspirations and joint injections, closed reductions of fractures and dislocations, as well as applications of splints and casts. You will remove corneal foreign bodies and corneal rust rings. This is only a sample of the procedures you’ll be able to do.

We also offer onsite training, an abundance of online courses, learning materials, and fantastic employee benefits such as:

  • Extremely competitive salary plus bonus
  • Licensure & Professional dues reimbursement
  • Paid Time Off
  • Flexible scheduling
  • Travel stipends
  • Full malpractice insurance
  • 401K Plan with Match
  • In-House Medical Care

To name a few!

A remarkable Nurse Practitioner will have exceptional communication and interpersonal skills to effectively and courteously interact with patients, families, clients, and co-workers. We require all of our Providers to be proficient with computers and have some experience with Electronic Medical Records systems. Finally, we seek a Nurse Practitioner who can adapt to the ever-changing patient flow while providing excellent care.
