I am a licensed nurse from the Philippines who is currently residing in NJ. I am able to start processing my application to be licensed in the state. Since it is taking time, I am thinking of working as a psych tech. It is my dream to become a psychiatric nurse one day. Working as a psych tech, I believe, will give me valuable experience I need in the pursuit of my dream. Can anyone please tell me about the job? Is it dangerous? Do I need to have a license to be able to work? How much does a psych tech earn?
Thank you so much in advance.
