Working hard to becoming a Psych Nurse, what I would like to know, from those who are already in the field working... What is it like? I know it's hard...but I want to know, what responsibilities do you have, what is your routine like?

Do you spend most of your day doing psychotherapy or taking care of medications? Do you do groups? What type of institutions do you usually get hired at and work for? I'm very interested in doing psychotherapy and research...but I would like to know more, what is this profession like...

I'm getting bombarded by crappy media...showing me the negative side of mental health institutions... so I need real people to tell me more about it...
