Job Description

Duties

Psyciatric nurses handle pre-admission screenings and assess the mental health needs of patients under their care. They work with other staff, such as social workers, counselors, doctors and therapists, to determine a diagnosis, develop a plan of care, and educate both patients and families on behaviors related to mental disorders. Along with standard nursing duties like drawing blood and administering medications, a mental health nurse must watch patients closely to note any behavioral changes. This is especially important in assessing the side effects, successes or failures of a new medication. In some instances, nurse may also be needed to help calm patients or conduct group therapies.
