Hi all I'm currently in nursing school and will be graduating in 2.5 semesters. Will be earning my BS. I'm the kind of person who really likes to have a good game plan for the future. I have decided to start thinking about how to get a job in the field I want and get stuff related to that going now, before I graduate.
Really interested in psychiatric nursing and I really want to work in that field. Looking for tips, pointers, ideas for how to get into that field when I graduate. Any certs I should be looking to get, extra classes, anything recommended to do?
Thanks in advance.

Honestly I don't think it's too difficult to get a psych position. It was the first job offer I got so I went for it. I was fortunate that I met one of the managers at my hospital when she was at my school for recruitment shortly before I graduated. I kept her card and gave her a call when I was job hunting. It takes a special nurse to really WANT to work in psych. Best of luck to you!
