Accessing Acute Psychiatric Care (Nursing)

Accessing Acute Psychiatric Care (Nursing)

by Brenda Marshall, EdD, MSN, RN

Psychiatric nursing is a unique branch of nursing that requires special knowledge and skills. Proper psychiatric care takes an entire team of mental health professionals, and nurses play an important role on this team.

In this course, you’ll learn more about the role of the psychiatric and mental health nurse in both in-patient and out-patient settings. We’ll discuss crisis prevention, risk management, and important safety measures for protecting both the patient and the healthcare workers.

You’ll also learn about some relevant legal and ethical aspects of this field, as well as how to avoid liability as a mental health nurse.

She is such a wonderful teacher. So gifted in delivering the info in a clear and concise manner. She also makes me feel like a friend is talking to me, which helps me feel calmer and more apt to absorb the information.
