The Position
Psychiatric Nurses provide professional nursing care to individuals with developmental delays, developmental disabilities, intellectual disabilities or social, emotional and/or behavioral disorders, in an institution or out-patient setting in accordance with the authorized scope of practice specified in the Nurse Practice Act.
This recruitment is for a part time (20 hours weekly) Psychiatric Nurse II to actively participate on a multidisciplinary team providing nursing care for children at DESERT WILLOW TREATMENT CENTER (DWTC) located in Las Vegas, NV. DWTC is a 20 bed psychiatric hospital accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations that provides mental health treatment for children ages 12 to 17. Incumbents possess a degree of knowledge and proficiency sufficient to perform work independently with little or no additional training.

The incumbent will ensure DWTC maintains a safe, healthy and therapeutic environment for our patients, and nursing care objectives are met in accordance with the nursing association professional standards of practice and consistent with DWTC policy. DESERT WILLOW TREATMENT CENTER (DWTC) operates 7 days per week, 24 hours per day with three shifts so there are a variety of available work schedules.
The Nevada DIVISION OF CHILD AND FAMILY SERVICES (DCFS), together in partnership with families, communities and other governmental agencies, provides support and services to assist Nevada's children and families in reaching their full human potential.
