Pine Rest careers were the focus of a recent FOX17 Morning Mix segment, where Director of Nursing Joe Karb, RN, was invited to talk about hiring opportunities for experienced nurses and entry-level psych techs, and the many benefits that a Pine Rest career offers!
Generous sign-on bonuses, tuition assistance, loan forgiveness, free counseling sessions for employees and their families through an Employee Assistance Program, and a YMCA wellness partnership are just a few of the unique benefits that employees can enjoy.
While Pine Rest has openings in all areas, the need for nurses and psych techs is especially strong as preparations for a Pediatric Behavioral Center of Excellence focused on child and adolescent mental health care is underway, slated to open in 2025.
“We know mental health is not going away. The need is increasing,” says Karb.
Pine Rest nursing careers give nurses the chance to benefit from our Pine Rest Academy, which partners with local universities to provide up to $40,000 in tuition assistance for nursing students. For individuals at the entry-level job seeking stage, becoming a psych tech is a great way to get started in the healthcare field with minimal to no experience, all training provided on-the-job, plus the opportunity to advance to higher levels of education and positions within the organization.
“If you’re questioning getting into healthcare as a vocation, it’s a great place to start,” says Karb.
For those interested in learning more, Pine Rest hosts open interviews every Tuesday 10 AM – 3 PM at 300 68th St SE, Grand Rapids, or you can apply online anytime at pinerest.org/CAREERS.
