ST. PAUL - The Minnesota Department of Human Services is aiming to fill more than 40 nursing and direct care job openings at a hiring event Feb. 17 at Anoka-Metro Regional Treatment Center.
Registered nurses (RNs), licensed professional nurses (LPNs), certified nursing assistants (CNAs) and mental health program assistants (MHPA) are needed to fill vacancies at the large inpatient psychiatric hospital serving adults with mental illness.
The DHS hiring event will be held Wednesday, Feb. 17, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Anoka-Metro Regional Treatment Center, 3301 Seventh Ave., in Anoka.
Human Services Commissioner Emily Johnson Piper said the hiring event will feature immediate, excellent career opportunities for people seeking positions in the health care field.
“This hiring event is a great way for people who want to provide care for mental health patients to get an on-the-spot interview,” Commissioner Piper said. “Every time I visit Anoka I am impressed by the dedication and expertise of our staff. I encourage anyone seeking a state career in health care who wants to be part of a team of dedicated professionals to join us on Feb. 17.”
Full-time and part-time openings exist as well as intermittent positions to work rotating day-evening shifts or overnight shifts. Many of these state positions are eligible for full insurance benefits. Hiring event attendees should bring a resume and valid driver’s license or state ID. On-site interviews will be conducted with possible job offers on the spot.
Job seekers who are unable to attend the hiring event can apply online at mn.gov/careers and search for the following four job ID numbers: RN 1367, LPN 1643, CNA 1651, MHPA 1604.
This is the first such event at the Anoka facility, which has seen the need for highly qualified staff grow as overall acuity of patients has increased. Hiring additional staff is part of an overall strategy to provide quality patient care in a safe and therapeutic environment.
The state of Minnesota is an equal opportunity and veteran-friendly employer.
