    IMO, based on amount of work-stress-downtime:

    EZ-mode: psych nursing, its like baby sitting
    Hard-mode: MedSurg, mainly because of the large census

    Hardest nursing? Whatever I'm doing.
    Easiest nursing? Whatever someone else is doing.

    Color me astonished.
    Have you ever actually done any psychiatric nursing?

    Really, it's impossible to qualify which area of nursing is hardest or easiest. Is there something you would specifically like to know?

    Based on my limited experiences in nursing school...

    hardest: med-surg or adult ER
    easiest: mother-baby nurse

    psych seems pretty easy too, if there are aids or LPNs taking care of the dirty work.

    Not trying to offend anyone... I'm just a student and don't really know anything yet. This is just my impression based on rotations at local hospitals.

    Really Psych nursing, ez! Really???? NOOOOOOOOOOOO....try providing care to a pt who is combative and manages to remove your scrub top, from your body, on the floor...true story...
