Hi, I'm a new graduate and I've been blessed with working opportunity as a psych nurse. I'll start my orientation next month and I'm so excited for that
During my psych rotation, I noticed the nurses just sat at nursing stations and passed medication. I do believe nothing is wrong with that as long as patients are safe and alive.
However, I'm wondering if psych nurses could really make a difference in patient's life?
The reason why psych is so appealing to me is because of the stigma surrounding patients w psych issue and I want to be able to care and treat them w respect.
So please advise. Thank you
