I'm currently in Practical Nursing school... we visited Richmond State Hospital today I loved it. My classmates think I'm nuts... but I really see my self working at the RSH. I enjoyed interacting with the patients. I was wondering what are the "ups and downs" in psych nursing. The area I want to go into is adolescence. They have a special unit for 13-19 year old boys that "act out" I would love it there, but I was told since I'm a 19 year old girl that I "could be easily taken advantage of," that however doesn't turn me off to the idea. I just want all of your input. Sorry if there are spelling errors... I'm tired.
