1. Hi am Melanie. I am a nursing student at Azusa Pacific University in California. I have hopefully just finished my rotation in Obstetrics and Gynecology and let me tell you it has been a ride. I am single which has made OB quite a difficult class to cope with.
    Just to explain my screen name, l appreciate a good NASCAR race, which involves my favorite driver... Dale Earnhart Jr.

    Hi Melanie, welcome to allnurses

    Hey thanks so much for welcoming me. I have quite a few questions, being only in my second year of nursing school. I am curious about specializing in mental health nursing. I myself suffer for two different mental health disorders: generalized anxiety disorder and major depressive disorder. I have managed and am still managing to work myself through things. People also wonder at how I tolerate nursing. It is definitely a lot of work.

    Anyway, I am curious to know what you can do with mental health. I mean, as a focus. I am wondering where some of you work? I feel a little ignorant but that's why am asking. I am also wondering what some of you do for your patients. What it takes to deal with people, who have serious mental health problems.
