Ok guys, I'm back again...and before I go into my big speal, I just wanted to inform you who know me that I finished my two classes I was working in. Intro to Health Care I got a 97% and Medical Terminology I got a 90%...and in hopefully in august ill be doing Patient Care Tech to reciece my CNA...anyways...I am again confused. I have been interacting at school with some mentally handicapped kids, and I must say, I am absoutly
fascinated by them, not disrespectfully, and I have always been interested in mental health and psychology (I finally learned how to spell it!!) Anyways....my hopeful career path is a Pediatric RN because I love kids and I love working with them...sooo...I have alot of questions. This may be confusing, but if you can follow what I'm saying can you pleeease help!
1) What exactly is a pshychiatic nurse?
2) Where do they work?
3) Is there such thing as a Pediatric Pshychiatric Nurse?
4) What type of jobs can I get with a Bachelors degree in Psychology?
Can you see where Im going? A friend of mine said a Psychiatric Nurse works in the "crazy home" im trying not to sound disrespectful but I cant think of anything else. Can I still be a nurse with a Bachelors in Psychology? Is there anyone like me! UGH! I hate being confused but Im so good at it! Im mainly just wanting to be clarified on some things so ANY information would help, espicially if you are a psychiatric nurse, or ANYTHING to do with this. Im sorry for the confusion, Im just a high school junior tryin to find my future.
Thanks guys and agian, sorry for the confusion.
