Job Description

Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

The Jewish Board delivers innovative, best-in-class mental and behavioral health services to over 45,000 New Yorkers each year.  We are unique in serving everyone from infants and their families, to children, teens, and adults. That adds up to countless opportunities to use your skills, training, and compassion to make a difference in the lives of others.  

The Jewish Board is one of New York’s best-managed nonprofits. In 2016, The Jewish Board won the annual Nonprofit Excellence Awards, sponsored by the New York Community Trust. This independent endorsement means that when you come to work at The Jewish Board, you know you’re coming to work at a well-managed, financially stable organization that’s been helping New Yorkers reach their potential for over 140 years.

We’re always looking for talented people of all cultures, religions, races, and gender expressions – so that our staff is a direct reflection of the people we serve.

As part of the clinical team you would provide assistance for people who are struggling with a wide range of emotional and social problems. Services for adults and children include evaluation and assessment, medication management, crisis intervention, time-effective and ongoing individual, couple, family, and group therapy, and loss and bereavement services for children and their caregivers. As a psychiatric nurse practitioner, you would be responsible for:

  • Provide psychiatric assessment, clarification of clinical diagnosis, recommend treatment options and provide client education on mental health issues and strategies for recovery and review patient’s progress and recommend discharge and aftercare planning.

  • Attend and provide feedback in case conferences.

  • Prescribe psychotropic medication as appropriate for client care.

  • Collaborate with other appropriate staff relative to individual, group and family therapy.

  • Assist with urgent crisis situations by conducting evaluations, interventions, and/or consultation to the clinical team.

To qualify, you will need:

  • A Nurse Practitioner degree with specialized training or experience in psychiatry.

  • A current license to practice as a nurse practitioner in NYS.

  • A current DEA registration for prescribing controlled substances.

  • ANCC certification/pending application.

  • NYS OPRA status and a Health Commerce Account at the onset of employment.

  • Specialization with specific populations (such as child/adolescent) or settings and language competency for the population served may also be required.
