Clinic Announces Application Deadline for Nurse Residency Program

Thursday, September 20, 2012
Menninger is pleased to announce that it is now accepting applications for the Betty Ann Stedman Psychiatric Nurse Residency Program that will begin in January 2013. The program is designed for graduates of Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) programs who would like to begin their psychiatric nursing career as a resident with The Menninger Clinic.
Nurse residents get to:
  • Work at one of the country's leading psychiatric hospitals.
  • Gain experience in specialty psychiatric care.
  • Earn six months of income while learning from experienced, caring clinicians.
Nurse residents, like trainees in other mental health disciplines at Menninger, learn to work as members of treatment teams, develop a treatment alliance with patients and provide a safe, supportive therapeutic environment for patients with complex mental illness. The team includes nurses, psychiatric rehabilitation specialists, chemical dependency counselors, social workers, psychologists and psychiatrists, as well as each patient.
An application must include completion of the online Menninger job application, letter of interest, official university transcript, HESI scores or Texas nursing license, two letters of recommendation and a resume.
