Psychiatric Nurse

Provide trauma-informed, non-coercive care to children in acute mental health crisis. Care is interdisciplinary and nurses work alongside Mental Health Partners to build relationships with patients in order to maintain safety and teach to skills in the lived moments of the child’s day. Our patients generally sleep at night in units of 6. There is a Mental Health Partner monitoring each 6 bed unit and 4 nurses who admit patients, complete morning blood draws and provide care for those children who may not be able to sleep. Fast paced, patient centered.
