Kudos to any of you who chose mental health nursing. I would be fascinated to hear your stories and learn more about what attracted you to this profession.
My job is going well. I really enjoy the patients and their families and I enjoy spending time doing little things like brushing someones hair or chatting with a resident about his service in the war. Its a bit frustrating to pass all those meds, but it goes by quickly and I am finding that I do in fact have time to spare and spend with my residents. I am so blessed to have this job.
