i wanted to get certified as a psychiatric aid and phamacy technician before i became a rn. i dont know how to go about looking for employment in these jobs. i wanted to work and save up to pay my own way in school. i currently am senior in college for ba in community and public health with a minor in mental health services. i am not sure what to do with that degree and i would prefer to have a back up plan. any advice is GREATLY APPRECIATED
Psych tech would be awesome preparation for a nursing career. I've met some amazing psych techs and they have better skills at dealing with difficult situations and patients than many, many RNs I know.
Pharm tech not so much but its a decent job.
