Do you work in a mental health unit in a hospital or a stand alone psychiatric facility? I am currently looking at a job in a hospital and one in a psychiatric facility. Any pros/cons to consider? As a psychiatric nurse, do you have to run milieu therapy/group therapy? When I was in school, one time a nurse ran the group session. The other days it was the mental health technician/aides. I am not great at public speaking and not sure I would like doing this. I communicate better one-on-one. Just curious as to your part in this at your facility?What is your typical day like if you are a day nurse? What about a typical night for a psych nurse?
