The Placer County Adult System of Care Division in the Department of Health and Human Services is seeking a Registered Nurse (RN) to support the Enhanced Care Management and Community Services programs. The RN will work independently or in coordination with master’s and bachelor’s level social workers by providing case management services to individuals with serious mental illness and/or substance use disorders and with individuals who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Case management will often be directly related to contacting other healthcare settings to ensure that clients are linked to the healthcare they need. The RN will also consult with other case management regarding client healthcare needs. Services will be provided by telephone and in person. In person services may be in the office, at homeless shelters, in client homes, or in other community settings. In addition to supporting enrolled clients, the RN will participate in outreach by building rapport with clients who have been referred to Enhanced Care Management, but may not be ready to participate in the program.
This recruitment may be used to fill both permanent vacancies and extra-help* positions in various County departments as they arise, subject to specific position requirements.
