Hello, I am new to this forum...

  1. I just accepted a position of leadership at the State Correctional Mental facility.

    Prior to that I was an ER Manager, this is my first step into Psych nursing (other than what we saw in the ER which was considerable)

    I am hoping to find some good insight and information of this forum.
  2. Visit RMW profile page

    me too!
    i was struck by your moving into corrections and mental health at the same time--brave soul, i say! the old corrections value to punish may well clash with a traditional psych value to support; hopefully, the circumstance you are in has moved forward. at the beginning of myshort lived "maximum security" experiences 30+ years ago, i didn't have a clue about the day to day presentations of the axis ii diagnoses. could have saved myself a lot of grief brushing up on the interaction of the axis i and iis!!! good luck in the new position!
