Are you interested in working in a modern office environment with cutting edge research and ideas being applied to treating mental health problems, such as depression, and how to enhance overall wellness, in a cooperative and caring small clinical team?   Do you love working directly with patients and providing a positive impact on their lives in a longitudinal manner? Do you have a friendly demeanor and excellent communication skills? 

Consider joining our team at Dignity Brain Health!!

Dignity Brain Health is a leading outpatient psychiatric clinic that provides patients in the greater Boston area, New England and nationally, with compassionate and evidence-based treatment for psychiatric conditions.

We are seeking a full time Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner to join our team of dedicated, collaborative, caring, and smart clinicians.  

**Medication Management + TMS Therapy (an exciting new role - we will train you!)

Main responsibilities are psychopharmacology for a variety of psychiatric conditions (about 75% of the time) and providing TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) therapy for depression (about 25% of the time).  All training for TMS will be provided on the job by our Medical Director (Dr. Omar); no experience necessary.

**You are given autonomy. 

You are expected to have independent practice authority in the state of MA to issue written prescriptions and medication orders and order tests and therapeutics.

***But you have a collaborative role as well. 

You also would be joining a collegial team that includes our Medical Director (a psychiatrist, Dr. Omar), two Medical Assistants, a Physician Assistant (PA), two Office Managers, one Practice Manager, and a full time Insurance/Billing Manager.  We love discussing patients together in weekly rounds and our motto is “never worry alone”. Advice, support, and camaraderie matter for happiness at work.

**Values Matter

To give you a sense of our culture and approach to clinical care, here is an introduction video patients see, made by our Medical Director, Dr. Omar: 

**Evidence-Based Practice.

We regularly keep up with new research to provide the best possible care to our patients.  Being able to review evidence based guidelines with patients and learn about their lives and provide general supportive care is key. 

**Heal Others With Your Mind, Heart, and Soul

Engage your whole self in your work, with knowledge of biomedicine, but also with your empathy, communication skills, and health education and coaching skills.

**We minimize your administrative work.

Our four full time administrative staff members are there to minimize your administrative work as much as possible (i.e. appointment scheduling, rescheduling).  Additionally, we provide you with daily paid time for your own administrative tasks (i.e., emails, notes, etc.).  

**We Invest in Your Work-Life Balance

We believe in providing the highest quality care for our patients, but also for our employees! We design your role to provide work-life balance, excellent interpersonal support, complete benefits, competitive pay, and we care deeply about and invest in the long term careers of our team members in a reciprocal manner.

**Rediscover the Joy of Caregiving and Meaningful Work. 

Exhausted from working in a soulless, warehouse-like hospital role? Burned out from a lonely do-it-all-yourself solo-role?  Rediscover your calling from those days when you started your schooling, and rediscover again the joy of caregiving!  This is a great chance to apply your knowledge, experience, and unique gifts to find a truly meaningful as well as collaborative role in which you can develop and sustain caring relationships with patients looking for compassionate treatment for various psychiatric conditions (especially mood disorders), and understanding and healing from stigma and the medical and psychosocial effects of mental illness in their lives and relationships.
