Health nursing offers a completely different experience than caring for patients
with only physical health-related problems. It's easy to forget that, in some
cases, a patient's decline in physical health can negatively impact their
mental health as well, but that doesn't mean their treatment is any less
complex. Psych nursing offers skilled nurses the opportunity to care for
vulnerable patients and themselves through self-reflection, and introspection. In
essence, these nurses and patients find strength in each other.

on this unit are dealing with difficult diagnoses. Our ideal nursing candidate
will have the proven ability to exercise patience, flexibility, and careful
listening when their efforts are often tested. This nurse will strive to calm
patients when they become agitated, strengthen patients coping skills, and make
it a build a therapeutic, meaningful relationship.

Registered Nurses answer their call to care for others through education and
training, but only a select few have the ability and confidence to test their
preparation in a service line where challenges and the rewards run high. Rising
to the occasion also opens advancement opportunities within the department.
