Psych ER Nurse or Psych Homecare??

  1. 0
    Hey guys...I was wondering if there were even such jobs as these? I think they'd both be cool to do, and would want to know how they work...For example, if you work as a psych ER nurse, is it an 'on-call only' basis or do you do shifts like the others?? If you work in psych homecare is it through a doc's office, a mental health agency, etc??

    Like I said, I dunno if they're even real positions, but I heard the terms somewhere and was curious.

    Thanks!

    I know that at Harborview MC, in Seattle, WA, USA, there is a full-time staff of RNs and others designed to receive, triage, assess, and process involuntary and voluntarily detained psych patients in their ER ... they are a level one trauma center ... and they are generally always busy. sounds kinda like that to which you refer ...
