I just finished my psych rotation! It was 6 weeks of sheer madness but I did well. I suggest getting a head start onyour readings. Do they sell the course outline in the bookstore? Get that & start reading. Start learning your psychotropic drugs, anxiolytics, anti-depressants-trycyclics, mao's, ssris' the side effects and major adverse reactions for certain drugs, Like hypertensive crisis, and neuroleptic malignant syndrome, EPS-extrapyramidal side efx, akathisia, akinesia, tardive dykinesia, dystonia, learn about antiparkinson drugs, Cogentin, artane.
They drug will follow you the whole time! Start diviying up the disorders, mood d/o, anxiety d/o, personality d/o, schizophrenia, delirium, dementias, substance abuse! It was actually fun1 It worked out well for me since I just a job a Psych hosp. last month. I'm in a LPN_RN transition tract of 1 year! only 9 more onths togo! Then I hope to enter an ER externship! Good luck to ya!
