I am 23 and I just started an LPN program here in Texas, when I'm done with that I plan to continue and become an RN. My question to all you seasoned nurses...How does one become specialized in a certain area of nursing. I would really like to be a psych nurse. Is this something that is done during education? Or just through on the job training? We only do 3 months worth of clinicals in the psych units and I'd really like to do more, possibly with the state hospital. Any advice?
