    I noticed that Virtua Mt. Holly (South Jersey) just posted a full-time psych position. From center city, Mt. Holly is about 45 min drive.

    try fairmont out by manayunk. I interviewed with them a little over a year ago. I interviewed with them and they offered me a per diem position. I didn't accept it but, they called quickly after applying to them.

    Fairmount (in Manayunk), Friends (off Roosevelt), and Brooke Glen (Ft. Washington) are all usually hiring, at least on a PRN basis. I work as a psych tech (starting nursing school this summer), and would say that one of the more important things to focus on is your ability and desire to therapeutically communicate and verbally de-escalate an upset or agitated patient. Any Psych RN experiences (during rotation) that you can focus on in your cover letter? We have some RN's that have worked in corrections at my facility so definitely play up the skills you've learned in that setting as well.
