Department of Children and Families Recruiting Nurses

September 12, 2022

The Department of Children and Families is “Calling All Nurses.”

The state is looking to hire nurses at the Albert J. Solnit Children’s Center. The psychiatric facilities run by DCF provide in-patient long-term care for children with severe mental illness or behavioral problems.

Hospital leadership said more nursing staff could make a big difference in the kids’ lives.

DCF is hiring. They are recruiting registered nurses at both Solnit facilities in East Windsor and Middletown, with the priority on Solnit South. They are filling full-time, part-time and per diem positions on all shifts.

Full-time registered nurse salaries start at $76,000. Head nurse positions start at $86,000. Employment comes with a benefits package.

Hospital leadership said right now, there is a major need to bolster mental health care.

They say more nursing staff ultimately means more kids get served.
