30 Nurses in 30 Days!

Saint Elizabeths Hospital holds job fair for registered nurses on Thursday, February 10.

Saint Elizabeths Hospital is holding a job fair on Thursday, February 10, 2011, as part of an aggressive recruitment campaign to hire 30 registered nurses in 30 days. The Hospital also is seeking experienced psychiatric nurses for management and quality assurance positions.  The job fair is from 10 am to 5 pm at the Hospital, 1100 Alabama Avenue, SE (adjacent to the Congress Heights Metro).

Operated by the District Department of Mental Health, Saint Elizabeths Hospital is the District’s inpatient psychiatric facility and home to just under 300 patients both voluntary and court committed.

The job of registered nurse offers:

  • Excellent pay and great benefits
  • Training programs
  • Free parking
  • Wellness programs

“Qualified, dedicated nurses are critical to patient centered treatment planning and high quality care, and we want them here,” said Chief Executive Officer Patrick J. Canavan. “Saint Elizabeths is an exciting place to work—the benefits are excellent and you have the opportunity to make a difference.”

The job fair includes a tour of the new hospital which features bright and airy working, living and treatment spaces, spectacular art hanging in the main entrance, wide corridors and enclosed green courtyards. A museum narrates the Hospital’s ground-breaking history as a leader in humane treatment of people with mental illness.
          
Applicants will be able to talk with key clinicians.  The Hospital has fully accredited psychiatry, psychology and dental residency programs along with robust clinical training programs.

Resumes will be accepted at Francine.dease@dc.gov.
