Nurse * New inpatient program! * 

Description

What are we looking for in a Nurse?

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of our newest program, Selah Evaluation & Treatment facility, which opened April 2019. This new sixteen-bed, secure facility serves adults who require short-term inpatient treatment due to a crisis or change in function related to mental illness. This program provides evaluation, stabilization, and brief treatment for adults in a supportive, trauma-informed environment. An integrated, multidisciplinary team of professionals will provide individualized treatment and develop a comprehensive discharge plan that emphasizes family support and community resources.

Nurses in this program will collaborate with the treatment team to provide integrated, evidence-based nursing services 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.

Nurses working at Selah E&T enjoy a three-day work week with 12-hour shifts, plus a minimum annual starting salary of $65,000 and comprehensive benefits package. We have both daytime and overnight positions available (7am-7:30pm or 7pm-7:30am); all positions will have shifts on rotating days of the week and will include working every other weekend.

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
