HCA, Hospital Corporation of America RN, Intensive Outpatient Mental Health Program (PRN) - Memorial Hospital of Tampa - Registered Nurse in Tampa, Florida

Intensive Outpatient Program/Partial Hospitalization Program

Our unique Intensive Outpatient program offers an alternative treatment option designed as a "step down" from an inpatient program once an individual no longer needs such a high level of structure, monitoring and care, or when an individual's needs necessitate a more intensive outpatient option than traditional outpatient care.

We have been serving South Tampa for over 30 years! We are a Baker Act receiving facility.

Desired skills:Previous RN Psych experience highly desired. CPI a plus, but not required.

More about the program: It is a PRN position based out of Transitions. The nurse will also be trained PRN for all BHS including intake to allow them to pick up additional hours. T he primary need is Transitions. The hours are 10:30 – 2:30pm we need consistent PRN coverage on Fridays and days when our core RN is out or on vacation.

What is Transitions? We run both a partial hospitalization program, which is 5 days a week, and an intensive outpatient program, which is 3 days a week. We run four group therapy classes a day from 10:30 in the morning until 2:30 in the afternoon. In the morning, we have 2 group sessions which each run for 45 min, and there is a 15 minute break in between. Then we break for a 30 minute lunch and smoke break. After lunch, we have 2 more sessions that are 45 minutes a piece with a 15 minute break in between. Upon admission, a patient will be assigned their own therapist and they will do one on one sessions either once a week or once every other week, depending on the patient’s need. They will also meet with our psychiatrist here at the program, to go over medications and to make adjustments as needed. The program usually lasts about 4-6 weeks, but it is very dependent on the patient’s needs and progress.

The nurse is responsible for nursing assessments, taking orders, physician interaction, nurse education groups and other nursing documentation.
