Job Description

Montecatini specializes in the comprehensive care of women ages 16-55 struggling with anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating and associated disorders. Our program offers residential treatment in a home-like atmosphere in Carlsbad, CA. This is a highly unique job experience that provides personal enrichment as we challenge this complicated disease process.

Responsibilities include: proper medical documentation, medication administration, applying detox protocol as needed (48 hours of training will be provided) and other duties as assigned. LVN's must be licensed in the state of California and have a clear driving record.

Position starts at $22 an hour but is dependent on experience.  We work 12 hour shifts, meaning your commute time is less and you can enjoy more time off! Working with clients who struggle with an eating disorder is highly unique and rewarding. The knowledge you will gain will be invaluable in expanding your scope as a nurse. 

This is a mental health position (in a less intense form).  All patients are self-sufficient and high functioning, performing all ADLs independently. Experience is not necessary; however, strong boundaries and assertiveness is a must. The ideal candidate should feel comfortable with administrative tasks, have healthy coping skills, be reliable, and have a sense of humor (we like to have a fun work environment). Computer skills such as Word are a must to be a successful candidate. ALL NEW LVN GRADUATES ARE WELCOME!!
