Location: Phoenix, Arizona

Internal Number: PsyNP1
The Division of Psychiatry at Phoenix Children's Hospital is seeking a full-time child and adolescent nurse practitioner to join a top ranked Pediatric Neuroscience Institute to provide comprehensive, high quality care for children and adolescents with psychiatric conditions.
The Family Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner will join a team of 10, serving children and adolescents across the consultation-liaison and inpatient and ambulatory service lines.
Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children's Hospital Psychiatric Division, led by Randall Ricardi, DO, offers comprehensive, compassionate mental health care services to children and their families.
Our approach is based on completing a full psychiatric evaluation; taking into account biological, psychological and social factors that play a role in the current difficulties our patients are experiencing as we consider the interaction between all these factors.
We strive to create a comprehensive treatment plan, to address the core and contributing factors identified during the evaluation. We address those factors by implementing or recommending evidence-based interventions, broader than the limited interventions offered by medication use only.
In order to maximize our patients' potential, we consider the resources available in their community and try to optimize factors that will support the resiliency of our patients and their families.
Collaboration and close communication with other disciplines and care providers are essential to provide excellent care. We value the role of the education system and collaborate with schools to provide broad recommendations for interventions that may be helpful in that setting.
The Nurse Practitioner will have the opportunity to collaborate with other professionals at Phoenix Children’s Hospital and Barrow Neurological Institute for interdisciplinary care, research, and participate in education programs for medical students, child neurology, general psychiatry, psychiatric nurse practitioner students, and child and adolescent psychiatry fellows.
A competitive salary and an excellent benefit and compensation package add to the attraction of the position.
Interested applicants are encouraged to submit a CV with cover letter to our leadership.
