The Welcoming Center in San Jose supports youth who are struggling in finding a stable placement, by creating a short-term placement plan and connecting them to supports and resources.
Under the supervision of the Nurse Manager and the Program Director, the Nurse is responsible for implementing and evaluating the nursing care delivered within the program, and for utilizing the nursing process to provide assessment, treatment planning, and evaluation of resident care within designated clinical areas. They act as a clinical role model and provide nursing consultation to staff within the assigned areas of responsibility.
“Being a nurse at Seneca has been an incredible, enriching and educational experience.” – Seneca Nurse
Seneca is always looking for ways to actively empower and uplift traditionally marginalized communities.
