Nurse 

Description

What are we looking for in a Nurse?

Nurses in our inpatient units collaborate with behavioral health treatment teams to provide integrated, evidence-based treatment to clients throughout their stay. Nurses work closely with clients to administer medications, to provide education about prescriptions and general health needs, and to develop a treatment plan that reflects the clients’ goals. When possible, nurses will also coordinate with clients’ families or social supports to help position clients for success upon discharge from our facilities. Our programs have adopted trauma-informed principles to client care, so the nursing process will similarly take a respectful, patient, client-centered approach. Continuing medical education and regular supervision are provided as part of this position.

We have positions available at each of our inpatient units in Yakima: Two Rivers Landing, Bridges, and the Competency Restoration Program. Nurses working in these facilities enjoy a three-day work week with 12-hour shifts (7am-7:30pm or 7pm-7:30am), plus a full-time salary and comprehensive benefits package.

Nurse duties may include:

  • administering medications (including injections) and monitoring clients’ symptoms & response to medication
  • counseling clients & their families about medications and treatment
  • completing nursing intake assessments
  • participating in collaborative treatment planning for each client, and offering expertise regarding nursing and medical concerns when needed
  • assessing clients for safety and risk to self or others, and taking appropriate crisis intervention measures when indicated
  • following appropriate policies, training, and techniques for managing aggressive behavior—including the use of seclusion & restraints
  • completing all clinical documentation in timely and thorough manner

Competency Restoration Program: This is a twenty-four bed secure residential treatment program that serves male adults who have, due to a mental illness, been deemed by the court to be unable to aid and assist in court proceedings regarding current pending criminal charges. The goal of this program is to offer residents treatment and educational opportunities in order to prepare them to be able to fully aid and assist in their own defense. Services are provided by a multidisciplinary team with an emphasis on collaboration, and the program uses trauma-informed evidence-based practices that have been proven effective for education and treatment. Schedule (2 positions): three 12-hour shifts with rotating days: 7am-7:30pm OR 7pm-7:30am

Two Rivers Landing & Bridges: Two Rivers Landing is a state of the art, short-term residential place of healing for youth aged 11-17 who are in crisis. The program provides crisis stabilization, evaluation, and treatment for up to sixteen youth (male or female) and utilizes an established trauma-informed, evidence-based model of care. An integrated team of professionals provides individualized care and a comprehensive discharge plan that emphasizes community resources and family support. Bridges is a sixteen bed facility that serves adults who require inpatient treatment due to an emotional crisis or change in function due to a mental illness. The program provides evaluation, stabilization, and brief treatment for men and women age 18 and older. An integrated, multidisciplinary team of professionals provides individualized treatment and coordinates a comprehensive discharge plan that emphasizes community resources and family support.Schedule (1 position): three 12-hour shifts: Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, 7pm-7:30am
