Mental health facility for adults, adolescents and childrenThe typical day depends on which role/department I was working in: Intake/Admissions , Charge Nurse on the PICU (psychiatric intensive care unit), or as supplemental nursing supervisor. I learned about the challenges of being the nursing supervisor, how to manage unexpected staffing shortages, and use employees weaknesses as educational opportunities. The hardest part of the job was the staff turnover; it seemed like once a great rapport was established, the person left shortly after that. The most enjoyable job was the positive atmosphere and professional for psychiatric patients.
