I have read all of the 'ancient' threads on this very topic, but I am curious to see if anybody else has anything new to say about the pros and cons of psych nursing? I am very interested in psychiatric nursing and I find the field fascinating.How often does one work with a violent/aggressive patient? (daily, weekly, monthly?)Is being a psychiatric nurse rewarding and satisfying? Is it an interesting career?How emotionally draining can the work be?
