I'm interested in becoming a Mental Health Nurse. Not a Psychiatric nurse. I know there's a difference between the two. I was wondering if anyone knew what the education requirements would be, other than becoming an RN. A psychology degree needed?
Just curious. What is the difference?
A mental health nurse and a psychiatric nurse are one in the same. If you work in the mental health/pscyh area, you will see a whole variety of things. Just getting your nursing degree is what is required. You do not have to have specific psychology degree.
