I've been in mental health for most of my RN career. I was a CNA for many years, then LPN in LTC while I completed my ADN. I then went on for the BSN. When I first passed NCLEX, I took a job in mental health and loved it! Still do almost 8yrs later. However, I would love to be able to develop the skills I barely learned in nursing school. I am wondering how to go about doing this because I'm pretty much the "mental health nurse" now. I found a skill brush up at the local community college, but couldn't get off of work. I planned to work my vacation this year around the class, but it wasn't offered. Now, I too am looking for some tips. I don't want to leave my current job and only work .8. Any pearls of wisdom?
