Nurse Practitioner Job Blast: Psychiatric Jobs Coast to Coast!

One thing I've learned in my years practicing as a nurse practitioner is that the company you choose to work for really matters. Yes, patient care takes on a similar form in clinics and hospitals across the country. But, coworkers and company culture are the main drivers of the nurse practitioner work experience. For psychiatric nurse practitioners, one company is making a name for itself as the best place to work. 

Today's job blast features two specialty-specific opportunities with Acadia Healthcare. Acadia operates a network of 250+ behavioral health facilities in 39 states, the United Kingdom, and Puerto Rico. Acadia provides psychiatric and chemical dependency services to its patients in a variety of settings, including inpatient psychiatric hospitals, specialty treatment facilities, residential treatment centers, outpatient clinics and therapeutic school-based programs. 

If you're a psychiatric nurse practitioner interested in exploring working with Acadia, check out the following job opportunities.
