inpatient psych RNs

Ridgeview Behavioral Health in Oak Ridge TN is in need of inpatient psych RNs and this company does participate in the National Health Service Corps. Not sure if inpatient RN qualifies but it would be a great company to get your foot in the door at as a new grad RN if you are going on for psych NP. Working at a National Health Service Corp site later as a NP means for 3 year's of service you could get 75k worth of student loans paid off.... RN might qualify as well.  It's easy work inpatient....new grads apply online at Ridgeview Behavioral Health.
