(March 14, 2007) Southern Maine's largest psychiatric healthcare network will host an Open House & Information Session on Saturday, March 24, from 9 AM to Noon at its Westbrook campus off Outer Congress Street and Exit 46 of the Maine Turnpike. 

The day's events will include an educational session from 10 to 11 AM on Suicide Risk Assessment. Continuing education credits will be available to nurses and social workers who participate. Facilitating the program will be Spring Harbor Staff Educator Melissa Gattine, MA, LCPC.

Open house participants can also avail themselves of an overview of Spring Harbor's psychiatric health network and clinical careers; a tour of the facilities; and networking with Spring Harbor's nursing, social work, and human resources staff.  Light refreshments will be served and door prizes will be available.

Hospital and outpatient specialty programs highlighted at the event will be child, adolescent, and adult treatment services, as well as treatment for youth who experience both mental illness and a developmental disorder, such as autism. 

"We have several key professional positions available right now," says Spring Harbor Hospital Chief Clinical & Nursing Officer Mary Jane Krebs, APRN, BC, "including full, part-time, and per-diem nursing positions, per-diem social workers, and qualified nurse practitioners and physician assistants. We are excited to share information about these professions and how Spring Harbor helps staff succeed."

In particular, Krebs says she is proud of the newly introduced professional career paths for nurses and social workers at Spring Harbor. "These include clinical and managerial paths for nursing," she reports. "A soon-to-be introduced nurse preceptor program is another exciting professional opportunity we offer."
