Hello, amazing psych nurses!
I'm a psychology major starting an accelerated BSN program this summer. Eventually I would like to pursue PMHNP, but that is a ways down the road. My question is in regards to your duties as a psych RN. I've read the thread about what psych nurses do in their down time on the unit... things like reading books/journals/newpapers or surfing allnurses. I'm worried... do any of you find yourself bored in your psych job?
Or would you consider it continuously, or at least mostly, mentally engaging? I previously worked as a day care teacher, and although I loved the children and enjoyed planning lessons initially, I found myself becoming bored with the daily daycare routine. I'm hoping this is something that won't happen to me in my future career as a nurse. Opinions?
