Behavioral Health Nursing
Based on the principles of psychiatric health and wellness promotion by identifying, preventing, and treating mental health problems and psychiatric disorders, behavioral health nursing involves building relationships with patients in order to help meet their needs. This includes identifying and understanding the causes behind aberrant behaviors and using clinically-proven techniques and skills to help rehabilitate and address the problems of these patients. Working in the inpatient psychiatric center, the community clinics, and offices, and with other physicians to ensure that their patients are correctly cared for, behavioral health nurses are often required to collaborate with an interdisciplinary team to treat the needs of the patients in their care by creating specialized treatment plans in order to achieve the greatest impact. On the behavioral health unit, teamwork is a must. Our team is fun-loving, competitive and quality care oriented.
The Behavioral Health Team welcomes new RN Residents to the unit.
