Acute-care psychiatric hospital
An acute care psychiatric hospital that works with children, adolescents, and adults, as well as, psychiatric, behavioral, and co-occurring disorders. As a Senior Mental Health Worker I provided direct patient care, encouraging engagement in treatment and ensuring patient safety.
Rewarding to work with adolescent children
Working in the psych field as an RN , helping adolescent children was very rewarding. The staff at Four Winds was always upbeat and positive. Although, the shifts where 12 hour and it could at times get very exhausting,the energy there was very positive to work in.
Great Entry Level Job
Great experience and entry level job. Also due to hospital hours, you have plenty of free time to enjoy your life. Unfortunately the compensation is low and not enough to support yourself. Unless you are planning to become a doctor or nurse, this is only a temporary position.
good for experience otherwise awful
Highly chaotic and unorganized since so many kids are from broken homes. You're basically a camp counselor
An exciting place to work. Very rewarding
Challenging postion working with a diverse patient population. Effective program to help patient work through treatment. Many dedicated coworkers.Tough pace to keep up with at times..Short staff is hardest part of the job
