What are we looking for in a Registered Nurse?
Nurses for our outpatient programs collaborate with their assigned treatment teams to provide integrated, evidence-based treatment to clients. 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. Our programs have adopted trauma-informed principles to client care, so the nursing process will similarly take a respectful, client-centered approach. This position is part of our outpatient medication-assisted treatment program for individuals who are opioid-dependent. Substance use treatment at Comprehensive is evidence-based and emphasizes harm reduction & continued progress toward each individual's recovery goals. This position requires a Registered Nurse who demonstrates an understanding of substance use disorders and their treatment, supports the evidence-based model of medication-assisted treatment, and understands the potential risks and thus need to follow exactly all protocols & testing to provide safe treatment.

Education & Experience: Associate's or bachelor's degree in nursing. Knowledge of substance use disorders and their treatment, especially evidence-based treatment models to include medication-assisted treatment.
Professional Credentials: Registered Nurse license in Washington State
