Job Description

Willow Springs Center has an opening for a House Supervisor (RN).

The purpose of the House Supervisor is to provide oversight and direction to nurses and to work in collaboration with Social Services and Special Services to develop and deliver effective programming on the unit in support of a therapeutic milieu.

The House Supervisor is the champion of trauma informed care and ensures that nurses and Mental Health Technicians utilize appropriate de-escalation techniques to maintain a milieu that is therapeutic and not re-traumatizing.  Without a clear philosophy regarding restraint and seclusion modeled for nurses, treatment efforts are retarded and progress for patients falter.

Nurses at Willow Springs Center develop nursing care plans by assessing patient’s psychological and physical condition and create plans for treatment, services and health education based on the present and predicted needs of the patient. Our nurses participate in multi-disciplinary treatment teams and collaborate with professional and para-professional staff to ensure optimum care for our special patients.

Nurses administer medications as prescribed by a physician or designee and ensure correct time, dosage and appropriate route of administration while monitoring patients for medication side effects and/or allergic reaction. They observe patients to determine if medication is effective for prescribed treatment and appropriately documents findings.  Our nurses do what is necessary to maintain the safety, health and well-being of the children we serve in the therapeutic environment and make crucial decisions to restrain patients who are a threat to themselves or others and may be hostile and combative. 

Located in the heart of the Sierras, Reno, Nevada provides a destination location where employees can live, work and play.  The location itself is a benefit; not to mention Nevada has no state income tax.

Working at Willow Springs Center means building a career that is dynamic and satisfying; having the opportunity to work and learn from some of Nevada’s leading mental health professionals; and being a part of something meaningful that changes the world, one child at a time.  Work at Willow Springs Center is a life path.

At Willow Springs Center, we seek high performing, compassionate professionals dedicate to impacting the lives of youth ages 5 to 17 years of age.  If you desire to make a difference through the work that you do, Willow Springs Center is the place for you.

Experience:  A minimum of four (3) years’ experience as a registered nurse and a minimum of three (2) years’ experience in a psychiatric health-care facility with at least one (1) year in the oversight of a nursing program.  Must be able to demonstrate clinical competency in Psychiatric Program Development and management and treatment of children and adolescents in an inpatient Psychiatric setting.
