    I worked PRN at a community psych hospital last year as an LVN medication nurse in the adult chemical dependency unit. Basically, I admnistered PRN and routine meds to the patients. I did not chart, participate in the admission process, or do very much. At this particular facility, RNs were definitely preferred.

    In our regional mental health programme, PNs work in all areas. We chart, admit, discharge, lead groups, medicate, and other "related duties" which we all know covers every last thing management can through at you under your scope of practice.

    I work at a geriatric psych facility, it's pretty nice.
