Psych nursing

  1. I am an LVN and would like to get in to psych nursing. First of all, are LVN's allowed to do psych nursing? If so, how do I go about finding a position? Thanks for any help or advice.

    I know in Texas, LVN's DO work in the state hospitals as psych nurses. THey mainly just hand out medications, and don't do as much of the care plans or team meetings as the RN's do, but that is just in Texas. Good luck!
