These positions are available to accommodate both 8 and 12 hours shifts. We are now offering a generous $1,000 sign-on bonus for these specific facilities. The Nurse helps handle pre-admission screenings and assess the mental health needs of patients under their care. They work with other staff, such as social workers, counselors, doctors, and therapists, to determine a diagnosis, de velop a plan of care, and educate both patients and families on behaviors related to mental disorders.
