VCU Health System's Psychiatry Department is seeking a full time Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner to provide outpatient clinical care to a diverse patient population in both the Adult Psychiatry Ambulatory Clinic and VCU Health's Center for Advanced Health Management. The Center for Advanced Health Management is a state of the art medical home to complex and geriatric adult patients. Advanced practice registered nurses (APN) demonstrate a high level of expertise in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of the complex responses of individuals, families, or communities to actual or potential health problems, prevention of illness and injury, maintenance of wellness, and provision of comfort. Assist the health care team with the prevention of illness and injury, maintenance of wellness, and provision of comfort. APNs continue to perform many of the same interventions used in basic nursing practice. The difference in this practice relates to a greater depth and breadth of knowledge, a greater degree of synthesis of data, and complexity of skills and intervention.
