I will be starting my psychiatric nursing rotation next semester. I have *always* been fascinated by psychology and how people "tick." I am constantly assessing everyone around me to understand where people are coming from and why they are acting the way they do. I have had a true passion to counsel people and help them psychologically from a young age. Naturally, I'm wondering if psych. nursing would be a good fit for me...I would love to hear about the typical job responsibilities of an RN in the psych. field (hospital, office, or otherwise). Can you tell me about your experience with it? Also, how likely is it for a new grad get into this field? Would you recommend a new grad for this field?
