General Overview

In 2019, we opened a newly renovated, state-of-the-art, 120-bed psychiatric facility on the Salem Hospital campus in Salem, MA in affiliation with Massachusetts General Hospital. This facility features two adult units, one child and adolescent unit, and one geriatric unit. These units are fully integrated with the Medical Center, joining the outpatient clinic, psychiatric consultation service, and partial hospitalization program to provide excellent medical, psychiatric, and subspecialty care to all patients.

We are seeking a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner to work in the community servicing a variety of community-based facilities, with SUD clients. Requires understanding of independent community based psychiatric work with medically complicated and compromised populations. Program is expanding and is comprehensive with inpatient medical consults, ED consults, outpatients and SUD Bridge Clinic.

Our NPs work side-by-side with experienced board-certified psychiatrists; this allows for both easily accessible supervision as well as a team-based approach to clinical care. We welcome all levels of experience, including new graduates, as on-site supervision is robust. NSMC offers a vibrant educational and clinical environment, with multiple top-notch CEU conferences, clinical case reviews, and an atmosphere of noncompetitive lifelong learning and professional development. NSMC has long-standing clinical collaboration with Massachusetts General Hospital in the specialty of Psychiatry.
