New grad with a job in a psychiatric facility

  1. 4
    Hi guys, I'm new on here and I am 2 weeks away from completing my degree! Since my first psych placement I've felt that it was for me and I'm stoked to say I have a job ready and waiting for me in a long term facility! So pls expect to see me on here asking advice or just expressing/venting my new experiences.

    Best of luck and congratulations.

    I found psychiatric nursing to be extremely challenging.

    It's easy to observe physical disease.. but psychological...requires another insight altogether.
