University of Utah Health Nurse Manager (RN) - UNI Young Adult Comprehensive Assessment & Treatment (YA CAT) Program in Salt Lake City, Utah

Overview

The University Neuropsychiatric Institute (UNI) and University of Utah Health are seeking a dynamic and experienced Nurse Leader to manage our new Young Adult Comprehensive Assessment and Treatment (YA CAT) Program at the UNI Murray location!

This Nurse Manager will be working in the UNI Murray Building and will have all the responsibilities of an inpatient environment, plus operational responsibilities associated with an off-site location, including the coordination and supervision of EVS, facilities management, and dietary services located in the building.

In support of the organization's goals and mission, the incumbent supports the CNO and Nursing Director in leading the functions of their assigned area. The Nurse Manager works directly with nursing leadership to ensure patient safety and quality of care.

This position may be required to access and administer medications within their scope of practice and according to State Law.

Program Overview:

The Young Adult Comprehensive Assessment and Treatment (YA CAT) Program at the University Neuropsychiatric Institute is anelectiveservice that offers a 4-8 week, comprehensive clinical evaluation for individuals of ages 18-30 in a residential environment with the capability of providing stabilization in a supervised setting, either before transitioning to the residential facility or if such stabilization is required following decompensation while at the residential facility.

Unlike an acute inpatient hospitalization, the duration of the YA CAT Program allows for the opportunity to conduct expansive diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. Such interventions include regular psychiatric and medical evaluation, psychological assessment, behavioral and educational/career/vocational assessment, and individual, family, and group psychotherapy.

The YA CAT Program utilizes a multi-disciplinary team of a psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker, nurses, career/vocational specialist, expressive therapists (music, art, and recreation), psychiatric technicians, and dietitians.

The comprehensive nature of the assessment helps to provide diagnostic clarity and guide recommendations for future therapeutic modalities and treatment levels of care.
