Calling all psychiatric nurses! Help!

  1. I've started a summer extern program on a local inpatient psychiatric unit. I will graduate from nursing school in December and plan to become a psychiatric nurse. But for the life of me, I can't figure out what the RN's duties really are! What's a day like in the life of a dynamic, high-energy psychiatric nurse? Help!
