Hello good nurses,
I will be applying to nursing school in a few months and have been interested in Psych Nursing for awhile now. I went to an interview for a volunteer position at a local hospital today, and will be starting in the adolescent mental health area as a visitor/buddy shortly. I am an introverted person and am always overly nervous during interviews. When questioning why I wanted to volunteer in this particular unit, the person interviewing me made the comment "I just don't want you to be eaten alive in there." I work in a group home right now and have some experience with adult MI and CD. Does anyone here have experience with the teen population? Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated.
