Hi. I have been an RN for 9 years in med-surg and cardiac areas and I wanted to shift to psychiatric nursing to extend my knowledge into this area. I currently live in Maryland and applied to Sheppard Pratt Ellicott city and Springfield Hospital center. Anybody who has experience working in these settings? How is it? How is the level of stress, work load, patient:nurse ratio, and nursing camaraderie. Will appreciate any input. Thanks!
I too am interested in Sheppard Pratt as well as Spring grove being that I've worked as a psych RN for about 3 years. 1 year private industry, 2 years state of VA. I pretty much have the same questions as you had. Any info would be helpful
