Transcript: Salary and Future Outlook Psychiatric Nursing Hours vary a lot, but a lot of the time there is a rotating schedule with shifts in the morning, afternoon, and night. The risk of injuries is what you would typically expect in a hospital. The clothing required is just a regular nurse outfit. Psychiatric Nursing is similar to regular nursing, but they take care of patient's mental health rather than physical health. There is a variety of locations but I think the one I’d be interested in is working in a psychiatric ward of a hospital. They care for patients, prescribe and ensure they take medication, and guide them back to mental stability and health. Sometimes they can even act as therapists for patients. The training program that appeals to me the most is a bachelor's degree from Kwantlen Polytechnic University, followed by a master's from Brandon University. Kwantlen is located in Langley, BC. The program is called the Bachelor of Psychiatric Nursing. I like it because it’s a university in BC whichhas a program for the field I am interested in. It's a pretty rare degree to get. The only problem is, it only offers a bachelor’s degree and I was hoping for a master’s. So, I could transfer to Brandon University in Manitoba for the four semesters required to get a master’s degree. It would cost approx. 35,000/year. To get accepted, you need grade 12 chemistry and biology, grade 11 pre-calculus, and grade 12 english - all with at least a B. by Kate Bernier Why Is It For Me? Training Program I’m interested in it because it seems like a great job for me. I’ve always been very interested in mental health, but it took me awhile to consider it as a career. I’ve never wanted to do psychology (I wouldn’t be able to handle dealing with children who are abused or that sort of emotional problems) but for some reason I know I’d be tough enough to handle nursing. I’ve always had a career in medicine as an option at the back of my mind, but the physical stuff makes me feel queasy so I wouldn’t be able to do that kind of thing. I’m a compassionate person and I’m really good at putting people before myself, which is an important attribute. I want to help people get better. Working Conditions Job Overview The expected wage is varied, anywhere from around 60,000 per year to 110,000 per year. It depends on experience and what amount of education you have. Job openings are expected to rise a lot soon. The baby boomer generation is going to need more care soon for things like Alzheimer’s and other diseases of the sort, plus care after strokes and other medical problems.

Also, the individual should enjoy working with others and consulting them when needed, and administering tests and assessments to gather information using a methodical approach. The general responsibilities and duties of a psychiatric nurse include (but are not limited to); Personally I have been looking into and very intrigued by a career in psychiatric nursing. Though I am not for sure decided, psychiatric nursing has been my career interest for 3 years. I find a reason behind this to be because I´ve dealt with anxiety and depression for a number of years now and take deep acknowledgment and appreciating in the people that help me to better my mental health, most specifically my psychiatrist. I find this line of work very interesting as I have always had a passion for helping people, and for making people happy. I think it would be a very self-rewarded career and I would take pride in myself investing my life into helping others. Duties
