Residential Support Workers Wanted! - Augusta, Waterville & Skowhegan!

Hero Wanted to join our Outpatient Nursing Team! - Skowhegan & Farmington!

When nurses are recognized as heroes, most will say that they didn't do anything special; that they were just doing their jobs, but being a psychiatric nurse isn't easy, nor is it simple to take off your "work hat" at the end of the day and place it on a shelf. Swing shifts are hard; night shifts are brutal and sometimes you wonder how you're still putting one foot in front of the other...and yet you do it.  

Perhaps it's time for a change...
