    ACT nurse interview

    I’ve been doing ACT for five years. My Team is made up of different specialties. The easiest part is the autonomy and the therapeutic relationships you build with clients. The hardest part is documenting because I’m always driving. Additionally, you might start feeling more like a social worker than a nurse if you have a bad clinical director. It’s also an eye opener with how little the community cares for our population. I can’t count the number of times I had to beg a hospital to admit or keep my client. Typical day is a morning meeting with the team. Then I go see my assigned clients. The other nurse and I work on medication management, psych education and facilitating their medical appointments in the community. Most of our clients get monthly injections. Some of my clients are housed and some are street homeless. I’ve administered meds and checked vitals in a public settings. Some agencies work weekends and/or have on call.

    Vanderbilt PMHNP Program

    It’s about one year FT if you already have a BSN. You have to go to campus 3 times in the Fall, 3 times in Spring and 2-3 times in the Summer. They have a webinar on their site with more information. My dream to attend the program.

    ACT Team

    I’m an ACT nurse. Five years now. It’s stressful and rewarding. Most of the people are either social worker or therapists and have no idea what they’re talking about when it comes to nursing. I do assements, facilitate medical appts/follow ups, medication management. I can go on and on.
