Join us in shaping the future of health care.
The work is rewarding as we see measurable improvement in our patients. From the time of admission, when they are experiencing a mental health crisis, through stabilization, and ultimately, as they enter the outpatient continuum of care, we continue to support their journey toward health, wellness, and recovery. Psychiatric nurses are strong patient advocates, ensuring patients are treated with dignity and respect and receive care in a safe, secure, and therapeutic environment.
We provide holistic care in a stigma-free environment for patients who have a full array of psychiatric disorders. Working collaboratively with the interdisciplinary team fosters a healthy, cooperative environment for patients and coworkers, which is rewarding and fulfilling. Nurses love the collaborative interdisciplinary approach, teamwork, and structure a robust therapeutic program provides. The Psychiatric RN provides direct supervision to Mental Health Workers, Behavioral Health Technicians, and Health Unit Coordinators and plays a significant role in training future nurses.
As an academic medical center and part of the Creighton University Arizona Health Education Alliance, teaching is one of our passions, and we support many staff members on their educational journey. This includes psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, and nurse practitioners. We are delighted to offer many opportunities for career advancement. Working alongside students and resident physicians provides a unique and mutually fulfilling learning environment.
Valleywise Behavioral Health Center has inpatient facilities in Mesa, Phoenix, and Maryvale and is one of Arizona's largest providers of inpatient behavioral health services. We serve adolescent and adult populations. The adolescent unit is located in Mesa with a 14-bed unit specializing in caring for patients ages 13 to 17.
