Since 1924, the St. Cloud VA Health Care System (VAHCS) has delivered excellence in health care and compassionate service to central Minnesota Veterans in an inviting and welcoming environment close to home. We serve over 39,000 Veterans per year at the medical center in St. Cloud, and at three Community Based Outpatient Clinics located in Alexandria, Brainerd, and Montevideo.
The RN is a part of the multidisciplinary treatment team on the Acute Inpatient Psychiatric Unit. As such the RN uses the Nursing Process to deliver acute care to mentally ill Veterans and substance abuse Veterans in both inpatient and observation status. The RN completes both medical and mental status assessments, performs group and individual psychoeducation and works with the community to assure smooth transitions from other facilities. The RN is responsible on afternoon and night shifts to also cover the Triage area in Building 111 where she/he performs a focused assessment of needs and reports such to the MOD for disposition of the Veteran. This RN also participates in Unit committees to promote the use of the Evidence Based Practice of the Recovery Model.
