Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner – Senior Behavioral Health
Tower Health – Chestnut Hill Hospital
At Chestnut Hill Hospital, we strive to be a place of healing, caring, and connection for patients and loved ones in the community we call home. Senior Behavioral Health is a 20-bed, inpatient care unit serving older adults who seek behavioral health services and require a short inpatient stay. Treatment is available for a variety of conditions, including depression, psychosis, bipolar disorder, anxiety, dementia with behaviors, and schizophrenia.
The Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner will collaborate with Hospitalist physicians to provide care for adult inpatients on the unit. This is an excellent opportunity for medical exposure through patient co-morbidities, consults on medical units, and daily interaction with medical doctors who co-manage and round daily on patients. The unit is composed of a Psychiatrist and three (3) Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners and offers manageable caseloads (6-7 encounters per day). The Nurse Practitioner will carry their own caseload of patients independently and establish a collaborative agreement with the Psychiatrist.
We feature an electronic medical record with off-site access (moving to EPIC this summer); opportunity to facilitate Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner student learning opportunities (i.e. clinical internships); and interdisciplinary treatment team meetings three times per week. Future opportunities include tele-psych and an onsite outpatient clinic. We currently round at four (4) local long term care facilities. Offering tuition reimbursement, a very competitive salary, paid training, the local Chestnut Hill area and a location that is walking distance to public transportation via train or bus (SEPTA).
