Hey Psych Nurses
I am currently working as a psych nurse is an acute adult unit mainly specializing in schizophrenia/psychosis disorders. I am going to soon be making the switch into an acute adolescent unit. Any adolescent psych nurses here? Any word of advice? I shadowed for a few hours in the evening/night (I'll be working night shift). I'm not going to lie, I'm a little nervous working with this population because I've never worked with patients under 18. Any advice working with this age group (13-17)?
