In addition, Mental Health nursing is not regarded as a desired career option by most students or as a desired career option by most seasoned nurses. Changes in mental health nursing education/clinical rotations to improve the perceptions, attitudes, and overall experiences of the student nurse are needed. Ongoing plans to develop and implement an intensive mental health clinical experience for nursing students that focus on increased student participation and therapeutic interactions are necessary.
