What is your current position? How did you come to be in this position?

I currently have two nursing jobs. I work fulltime as a homecare
psychiatric nurse for a homecare agency. I also work partime as a
clinical reviewer.

What are your roles and responsibilities?

My role as a homecare psychiatric nurse is to provide nursing care to
mental health patients in their homes. The clinical review job

I make 12 to 15 visits a day to patients’ homes, which involves a lot of
driving. The two nursing positions also involve a lot of paperwork,
which has to be completed within 48 hours.

this specialty?

I chose the nursing profession after participating in community
volunteer work. I decided to work as a psychiatric nurse because of my

student interested in your specialty?

I would advise a nursing student interested in becoming a psychiatric
nurse to take some psychology classes in order to understand various
psychiatric diagnoses. The student should also complete an RN degree
or diploma program.

In order to be a successful nurse, you have to be caring,compassionate
