Crazy. I'm trying to get into the ICU LOL medical experience doesn't really help that much I found. They're two different world. Beyond vitals you don't do anything medically related. You don't start IV's because there are needles involved. You don't do foleys in my experience because it doesn't matter that they have urinary retention due to maybe an enlarged prostate. Those patients would be on the medical floors, you don't need so check I/O. There really isn't really any medically related interventions. Still, psych is about patience and working with patients who have mental issues. You have to learn to de-escalate situations, and work with these patients who have a lot of inner conflicts. Psych isn't difficult to get into I don't think. I think there's a need in psych since many people don't want to deal with these patients. I understand people who say that, too, but still you definitely need to know how to work with them. Good luck either way!!
