    Psych Nurses. Do you hug your patients?

    I'm not a Psych nurse but I'm thinking about going to school to become one. I just graduated from Massage Therapy school. So I understand the importance of showing compassion and empathy towards others. I don't think there is anything wrong with hugging patients. Most people go into the nursing field for the money. They don't really care about people and that's the sad thing about it. As a nurse, you are supposed to have compassion for others. And that's something most people lack. But for the nurses who actually do have compassion, it sets them apart from the ones who are only in the field for money. If you want to hug your patients then do so don't worry about what other people think.
  3. I know to become an RN takes two years. But how much more schooling would I need to become a psych nurse?
  4. Do you have to work as a CNA? Some people say no and some say it could make a difference between you being accepted into the Nursing program or not. Like you May be selected over someone who has no previous medical background. I did go to Massage Therapy school but I don’t think that would be considered as having a Medical background.
