I have been a psychiatric nurse for about a year and a half now and I love it. Though recently I was the victim of an assault by a patient that left me injured and I have decided I'd like to try something new. I am worried that the lack of medical skills used in psychiatry will leave me at a disadvantage when it comes to branching out and trying a different kind of nursing.
I'm looking for recommendations on which types of nursing or specialties would be easiest when transitioning out of psychiatry and also what I should study in preparation for this. I would like to have two years of psychiatric experience on my resume so I still have another six month to prepare for the transition.
Thank you so much for your help!
