suggestions for new SN extern

Posted

I was lucky enough to receive a paid summer extern on a psychiatric unit this summer! I'm currently a junior in nursing school and won't have any proper psych clinical experience before starting my externship. Any advice for a total newbie on how to prepare or what makes for a good student nurse/psych tech/student intern? I'm very interested in mental health and eventually want to be a PMHNP. Thanks!
