    RN with past psych probs as psych nurse?

    Hi! I am an RN BSN with 6 yrs cardiac post-op experience. I am considering returning to school for a masters in psych but am wondering if it is a smart move--- about 4 yrs ago I experienced significant anxiety/depression after miscarriages--which was successfully treated (outpatient) Then again postpartum this past year. I am on zoloft and consider myself completely recovered---save an occasional manageable symptom. It is this experience that has attracted me to pshch. I find it fascinating and hope that maybe since I've experienced this it would help me to understand how pts. are feeling. OR on the other hand it might just make ME crazy ! Maybe seeing people at their worst would bring out the worst in me? Maybe this would not be a good environment for me? Any opinions or experiences appreciated. Thanks
