Massachusetts Psych Nursing

  1. Hello AN,

    As an LPN I will like to know psych facilities that hire LPNs or know if its a good idea to start as a mental health worker and get pay $12-$14. Do you you think I will have a hard time getting a job because Im a nurse? All facilities and hospitals mostly hire RN. Im only looking for a per diem position while going to RN school. Future PMHNP here

    Thank you for all the advices.

    Work as LPN. You will learn psych meds which will help you later. Often the LPN will do all the meds for the psych pts. Be willing to cover off shifts and weekends. There might be nursing home type places that have a lot of psych pts. Or geripsych.
