Job Description

Job Description:

This position is for the Crisis Response Center. This an emergency setting for behavioral health. It is fast paced and can be very busy. The ideal RN candidate should possess behavioral health experience for at least 2 years. We require a minimum of an Associate’s degree, but prefer a Bachelor’s degree. A psych certification is not required but it is always a plus if the candidate has one as this tells us behavioral health is their specialty. An RN who has both medical and psych experience is also a great candidate for us.
This environment can be loud and intimidating for candidates that do not possess psych experience or are not comfortable with patients who are in need of psychiatric crisis intervention. Our patient population is mostly from the inner city and present with various psych needs. Some of these patients can be verbally or physically aggressive. I would compare it to working in the prison system.
I need the candidates as soon as possibly available as I’m down 3 nurses on the night shift. The RN would be 1 of 3 RNs on the unit and would always have support from the other RNs present as well as doctors and techs.
