I'm starting nursing school this summer, and, like everyone else, hoping there will be a job with my name on it when I'm finished. Always been a dreamer
Anyway, I may need a job while in school, and I'd like one that will benefit me in my career in the long run. My previous education is in psychology, and I'm interested in taking that to the nursing spectrum and possibly being a psych nurse.
So, my question is, does anyone think being a psych tech is a good option? Do all psych techs need to be muscular men who can wrangle angry patients, or are there jobs for the not quite so physically intimidating? Is the scope of practice comparable to a CNA?
Any advice would be awesome. Thanks!
