Patients are complex medicine patients, including psychosocial and mental health issues. The wide variety of patients makes working here both rewarding and challenging.

Under general supervision, the Newly Licensed RN identifies and implements nursing interventions and evaluates results for a wide variety of patient populations. Directs and acts as resource to other members of the nursing team as assigned. Promotes compliance and support of policies. Achieves trust in professional collegial relationships.
