Job Description

Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner:

Picture this for a moment—working as a psychiatric nurse practitioner in an environment laden with professional opportunities. Where paid vacation time is extremely generous. Where you get 15 paid agency holidays. Where you have sick time so you don’t have to choose between vacation and going to the doctor. Where health/dental/vision plans are available and subsidized up to 80%. Where there are various operational trainings for clinicians. Where you get access to 403(b) retirement benefits and a pension.

These imaginings are reality at The Jewish Board and just the tip of the iceberg for you, when you’re working in one of our programs.
