Our Treatment Philosophy
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.
The training experience at The Menninger Clinic provides the nurse resident an opportunity to see patients make substantial progress in treatment. During their stay, patients learn and master new skills, including how to maintain their personal well-being and manage their illness after discharge.
An application must include completion of the Menninger job application
, letter of interest, official university transcript, HESI scores or Texas nursing license, two letters of recommendation and your résumé. Residency positions will be posted online
in the spring and fall.
