Message from Rogers’ Chief Nursing Officer 


Welcome and thank you for taking the time to explore the nursing opportunities available at Rogers Behavioral Health. Our nurses play a pivotal role in helping patients reach their full potential for health and well-being.

At Rogers, our nursing model exemplifies the rich traditions that have made Rogers one of the premier evidence-based mental health and addiction treatment providers in the nation. With locations in 10 states and growing, our more than 300 nurses serve in a variety of roles on multidisciplinary teams and bring an array of nursing, psychosocial, and neurobiological expertise to our patients. They are experts in the assessment, diagnosis, compassionate care, and treatment of mental health and substance use disorders while serving as strong advocates for patients and families in the reduction of stigma. Most importantly, Rogers’ nurses are empathetic, resilient, strong in communication and problem-solving skills, and dedicated to forming strong relationships with our patients and their support systems.

Rogers nurses are offered a depth and breadth of experiences and opportunities they simply cannot gain anywhere else. A dedicated clinical ladder for those interested in exploring leadership roles, as well as opportunities for ongoing career development, help our nurses flourish. With the support of experts in the field, Rogers’ nurses also have access to training in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and Addiction Recovery methods that are used as part of clinically effective, evidence-based treatment with exceptional outcomes.

When I made the decision to enter leadership, my personal goal was to become a mentor to nurses and continue the legacy that was shared with me as I was mentored by others. My leadership style involves partnering with nurses in mutual respect and collaboration, and together creating a community through mentoring, clear communication, and the delivery of evidence-based, compassionate care.

With an ongoing commitment to enhancing our standards of care, we achieve clinical excellence in every aspect of our role as nurses. Patients are our number one priority as we create a caring and healing environment that will transform their lives and those of their families. We understand the impact we can have at a critical time in their lives, and we take that responsibility seriously. Our nurses know that they are making a difference. We are committed to recognizing individuals for their dedicated to exceptional care through internal and national awards, including the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses.

We are also keenly aware that this field can be challenging, and self-care is critical. At Rogers, we support and encourage our nurses every step of the way. We strive to create a healthy culture where everyone, both patients and employees, can grow and feel welcome, safe, and respected.

I encourage you to learn more about the variety of nursing roles across all levels of patient care from our inpatient hospitals and residential programs to partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient care. It takes a special kind of person to be a Rogers nurse.

We hope our mission of providing highly effective mental health and addiction treatment that helps people reach their full potential for health and well-being is one that you’d like to be a part of. If your passion is behavioral health and addiction, we’d love to have you join us.
