I am currently a nursing student in my senior year and am looking to choose a floor for my preceptorship next semester. I originally had no interest in psych, until i visited the inpatient child psych hospital. I was only there for 6 hours, so im not sure what exactly goes on their everday, so am looking for more insight how it is to be a child psych nurse, and what exactly you do. I really enjoyed the environment, and get along with kids so i was thinking it could be right for me, but i am not sure. When i was there the nurses mostly helped with groups, kept the children on track, helped if there was an outburst, and gave meds. Any opinions??? pros and cons to working in child psych?????
