Responsibilities

The Carolina Center for Behavioral Health is currently hiring registered nurses to join our team of dedicated professionals.

Who We Are

The Carolina Center for Behavioral Health is a 156-bed licensed, private psychiatric facility located on 13 acres in Greer, SC, conveniently close to I-85. Specializing in psychiatric programs and substance use treatment, inpatient programs are offered for adolescents, adults and senior adults. There are also intensive outpatient programs (IOP) and partial hospitalization programs (PHP) for patients with psychiatric and co-occurring psychiatric and substance use disorders. Above all else, we treat every patient with compassion and respect. Using evidence-based treatment approaches and individualized care, we strive to instill hope in our patients, their families and our community.

Who You Are

It’s the opportunity to make a difference that drives you. It's taking the time to really listen to a patient so you can do your best to help. It's the camaraderie among professionals who push you further than you ever thought you could go. You are as equally diligent and attentive during quiet times as you are in a crisis situation. You are a highly empathetic individual with a high level of emotional and social intelligence. Your satisfaction comes from a patient’s noticeable progress or a sincere word of thanks from your patient's family. It's these experiences that solidify your dedication to helping others.
