a great place to work and learn the necessary skills in psychiatric nursing, good people to work with.
A typical day at this job is going to work and not really knowing what you are going to come across. I have learned to take things as they come and to treat all my patient individually because they are all different with some of the same disorders. As for management as long as you come to work and do your job management is great, my co- worker are awesome because we all come together as a team to deal with difficult situations. The hardest part of my job was went you know someone really needs the care and they are not receptive and leave before they can get help. The most enjoyable part of this job is when you see a patient when they first come in and weeks down the road you see the improvement it make you feel good inside knowing that you played a part in the process of their care.
Lovely client and staff to work with! Poor management!
My day started at 7am. I would walk around and check all clients for any changes in condition. Med administration would begin. Treatments would be done after med administration. Then charting. Then I would assist the phy with visit. Assist with lunch feeding. Start med administration again. Go to lunch. Do last charting and then my day would be complete at 3:30pm.
Not a fun place to work
Management is not helpful at all. Turnover is high. Most co-workers are not enjoyable to work with. Hardest part of the job is not having the help you need.
