Services for the UnderServed (SUS) is a New York-based nonprofit organization that provides housing and support services to 25,000 individuals and their families living in New York City and Long Island. SUS believes every New Yorker has the right to lead a life of purpose.
For more than 35 years, SUS has been transforming this belief into reality by working as an advocate for people with life circumstances marked by intellectual/developmental disability, behavioral health challenges, poverty, & histories of incarceration and/or trauma.
We drive scalable solutions to transform the lives of people with disabilities, people in poverty and people facing homelessness: solutions that contribute to righting societal imbalances. Our commitment to continuous quality improvement impacts the lives of our clients and communities while contributing to the development of our employees.
S:US is in search of a Licensed RN to work on a new NY State Office of Mental Health (OMH) funded hospital-based care transition team that exclusively serves individuals inpatient at Bronx Psychiatric Center (BPC) and 730.40 designees at Metropolitan Hospital Center (MHC). The team will follow individuals into the community using the evidence-based Critical Time Intervention model of care to ensure that they become both linked and engaged with identified community providers and that their support network is sufficient to meet their needs. The Registered Nurse is responsible for the treatment of human responses to actual or potential health problems through such services as health teaching and counseling. The nurse will provide interventions supportive to or restorative of life and well-being; and execute medical regimens prescribed by a physician, PNP or another licensed health care provider. The role will require some on call coverage and a willingness to be flexible.
