So You Want to Be a Psych Nurse?
Today in the “So You Want to Be a Nurse” series, we’re focusing on mental health nursing. This specialty is a personal favorite of mine- it has always interested me but emotionally, I knew I couldn’t handle the struggles of mental health nursing. That’s why I have the utmost respect for psych nurses.
Our contributor today is Princess @yennej_. I have known her since freshman year of high school and we both completed our LPN program together at Clara Barton HS. She has always been an amazingly kind and friendly person and it hasn’t changed a bit! Princess is a BSN, RN who currently works for the largest public health system in the US and one of the premier mental health hospitals in NYC.
