Psychiatric Nurses & Mental Health Counselors for Flexible Contract Work

Ascend, A MAXIMUS Company - Indiana


Ascend, A MAXIMUS Company, is a leader in providing specialized assessment services is partnered with the State of Indiana to administer PASRR (Preadmission Screening and Resident Review) assessments.

PASRR is a federal requirement designed to ensure that individuals are not inappropriately placed into nursing homes for long term care services. All individuals seeking admittance to a Medicaid-certified nursing facility must be evaluated for serious mental illness, be offered the most appropriate setting for their needs, and receive the services they need in those settings.

We are currently recruiting Independent Contractors to administer assessments on an as-needed basis. As this is contract work, mental health professionals are compensated for each completed assessment they submit. Typically the assessments are administered in a hospital or nursing home, but on occasion, it may be in an individual’s home.

Qualified Indiana licensed professionals include:

  • LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker)
  • LMHC (Licensed Mental Health Counselor)
  • LMFT (Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist)
  • LSW (Licensed Social Worker - Masters level)
  • RN (Psychiatric Registered Nurse)

The assessments are flexible and can be worked into any schedule to include administering them in the evening and on weekends if preferred. You set your schedule. This is a great way to earn extra money on a flexible schedule while providing a valuable service to the citizens of Indiana!

If this sounds like something you would enjoy then we’d love to hear from you.

We are recruiting statewide so if you know of anyone who meets our qualifications and would enjoy the opportunity to supplement their retirement or existing income, then we’d love to hear from them too!

Your phone calls are welcome. Contact Michelle Stokes 629-230-5178
