Atrium Health Levine Children's Hostpial 3K is a 22-bed observation unit. On 3K we cohort most of the children at Levine Children's Hospital with a mental/behavioral health diagnosis. However, because we are a medical observation unit, we can also care for patients with a 1-2 day hospital stay, e.g., those requiring IV hydration, rule out sepsis, or ortho/surgical observation. Our staff is very passionate about caring for children and teens with behavioral health needs. We have a diverse group of nurses with backgrounds in Adult and Pediatric Nursing, Behavioral Health, and Med/Surg nursing. In addition to the nursing staff on 3K, we have psychiatric technicians to help care for our behavioral health population.
We are seeking a full-time educator for our team of nurses and psychiatric technicians on the 3K unit as well as for our hospital-wide team of patient safety attendants. Previous Behavioral Health Nursing experience is required; prior Pediatric Nursing experience is preferred.
