Can someone explain the differences in working as a neuro nurse v. a psych nurse? I understand how they differ on a basic level, but I am curious how the case loads and working envrionments contrast, and which speciality is more rewarding/challenging, etc. I would love to eventually have a career in one of these specialities, as I come from a background in psych. I have a very patient and compassionate heart, which has always lead me to believe that psych is my calling, however, neuro is endlessly fascinating to me.
Any advice, suggestions, opinions, etc., are eagerly welcomed!
Thanks in advance!
