I am a psych RN in eastern Canada, graduated 2006 and went straight to psych. I work acute psych and have also done a little crisis response and in-patient addictions (detox). I have been looking to make a change and a classmate/friend suggested I might do well in remote nursing. I am seeking the input of current of former rural/remote nurses to help me determine what nursing knowledge I need to refresh/acquire. I am doing a quick self-study refresh of basic nursing knowledge (patho, assessment, clinical skills review, etc) but I would like direction from experienced nurses on what extra or advanced topics I should look at. I know there are remote nursing courses available, but would like to self-study a bit before enrolling in one of those.
