The Registered Nurse will provide health services to children at the Sheltering Arms Reception Center, which is a Sheltering Arms Children and Family Services program located in the Baychester area of the Bronx. The Sheltering Arms Reception Center is a pre-placement residential setting for children 0 through 12 years of age who are awaiting identification of an appropriate foster care placement. The design and intent of the Reception Center is to offer infants and children 0 through 12 years of age a home-like and welcoming environment, which would be comforting during a very difficult time. The Reception Center has a capacity for 15 children and a nurse is on site twenty-four (24) hours a day, seven (7) days a week.
