  • Responsibilities



Mental Health nursing offers a completely different experience than caring for patients with only physical health-related problems. It's easy to forget that, in some cases, a patient's decline in physical health can negatively impact their mental health as well, but that doesn't mean their treatment is any less complex.

Psych nursing offers skilled nurses the opportunity to care for vulnerable patients and themselves through self-reflection, and introspection. In essence, these nurses and patients find strength in each other.

Patients on this unit are dealing with difficult diagnoses. Our ideal nursing candidate will have the proven ability to exercise patience, flexibility, and careful listening when their efforts are often tested. This nurse will strive to calm patients when they become agitated, strengthen patients coping skills, and make it a build a therapeutic, meaningful relationship.

  • Qualifications



Associates Degree in Nursing (ADN) from an accredited nursing program
Active nursing license in the state of Arkansas or license with eNLC privilege
One (1) year of experience is a Registered Nurse
Basic Life Support (BLS)
