SHW is a 16-bed Adolescent Psychiatric Treatment Hospital (for adolescents between 11 and 18 years old) nestled between Ridgecrest and Centennial golf courses on a picturesque piece of state property along the Nampa Interstate 84 corridor. SHW provides psychiatric inpatient treatment care for Idaho’s adolescent citizens with the most serious and persistent mental illnesses. The hospital works in partnership with families and communities to enable clients to return to community living and will be accredited by The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations and certified by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

POSITION INFORMATION: Our Psychiatric Technician Trainee position is an underfill position for applicants that do not meet our Psychiatric Technician qualifications. This allows those applicants to receive and complete necessary training and allow time to obtain more experience and/or certifications so that they can be considered for a promotion to the Psychiatric Technician position. These positions will be working under the direction of the Director of Nursing to implement, maintain, and manage patient care and safety. This position also requires applicants to become certified in CPR and Nonviolent Crisis Intervention.

This is an ongoing announcement which means at the time applicants apply, we may or may not have an opening.
