    I know there were nursing books for this when I was in school. Of course I dont remember off hand. I think I used Mosby while in school for care plan type of things.

    I usually have something related to Safety &/or Orientation if identified as a need.
    Something like... Goal: free from self injury/harm- will id (or verbalize) triggers to self harm ....will seek safety zone when impulse to harm is noted
    Goal-zero forced meds: demonstrate compliance with medications

    Once you identify the needs or problems the patient can help you identify what they are willing to work on (if pt not actively psychotic)

    Zenman I need some advice and I think your the guy. I'm a 27 year old male, started out a couple years in ICU in cincinnati and I've just kinda flipped into psych with an interest being pmhnp and the navy reserve (monthly stipend) program. I can't PM on here but can you give me any insight or advice into your experience and life compared to other np fields you've seen? jmlemo23@gmail.com. Would be greatly appreciated brotherman, its hard to find psych nps here

    I can't tell you about all my life experiences until certain time limits have passed, however, as screwed up as the world is PMHNP is a great way to go. More interesting than plugging holes in people and inserting tubes, etc. (Been there, done that) All you need for equipment to practice is...well nothing but your brain. In contrast to other NP areas, you have the option of using ancient "techniques" if you wish. For example, I've trained with Shipibo shamans in the Amazon and Q'ero Indians in the highlands of Peru. Now I'm studying ways of the Kalahari bushmen (certainly more interesting than working on the DNP!) I can run a fire ceremony, do soul retrievals, for example as well as prescribe modern meds or do therapy. Ask an FNP or any other NP to practice as they did in the old days, lol!

    Yes, but they work only for one condition that I know of, and it's not the preferred way.

    It's preferred treatment for hemochromatosis. Chelation if anemic.

    But I'm just messing with you.

    My tool bag doesn't have anything close to those you carry in yours sir.

    Cheers.
