Psych Nurses

Posted

Props to you! I feel physically, mentally and emotionally exhausted right now. I work on a medical oncology floor, but had many patients with secondary psychiatric diagnoses this week. I do not know how you do it all the time, but you are amazing!! I am so thankful for you all!!

What a nice compliment! Psych nursing can be very emotionally draining, and I too have worked on an oncology floor with psych patients. Mind you, oncology is phsycologically draining on it's own anyway - and those patients have their own major issues to deal with.

Well done, you got through it!

Thanks for the kind words :)

I don't think I could work oncology--I think it would be too draining emotionally--so thank you for what you do as well!
