Incumbents actively participate in a multidisciplinary team managing a wide variety of patients and diagnoses. Dynamic work responsibilities include assessing and identifying patient health care needs; making comprehensive clinical observations and evaluations; preparing nursing care plans; administering medications as prescribed by a physician or designee; and monitoring patients for medication side effects and/or allergic reaction.

This is a full-time position that may include weekend and holiday shifts. The specific work schedule is to be determined. Incumbents will be working an innovative variable schedule with overtime after 40 hours per week. While this position is anticipated to be assigned to Rawson-Neal Psychiatric Hospital or Stein Hospital, in Las Vegas, agency positions may be assigned to any SNAMHS work location. SNAMHS provides an excellent benefits package that includes health, dental and vision insurance, participation in the Public Employees Retirement System (PERS), yearly accrual of 15 days of annual leave and 15 days of sick leave, paid holidays and no city, county, state or social security tax!
