Pediatric Psych/Behavioral Health

  1. I have an offer at a psych hospital and residential treatment center. I have worked pedi med/surg, maternal-child home visits, and pedi private duty. The position is for a 10 bed latency unit ages 4 to 11. My concern is that I would be the only nurse along with a mental health tech on the unit. There is a 30 bed adolescent unit fully staffed with multiple nurses and techs within steps. My shift would be overnight 7p-7a with a set schedule 2-2-3 working every other weekend. 36 hours the first week and 48 hours the next.

    Does anyone have advice for me or feel like it would be too much to handle for someone with no inpatient psych experience?
