Psychiatric nurses work exclusively with patients who have mental disorders, such as schizophrenia, dementia, bipolar disorder, anxiety and depression, among others. As part of a patient’s treatment team, they assess a patient’s mental needs before collaborating with other medical professionals to come up with a treatment plan. Plans may include counseling, medication and behavioral therapy, all designed to enhance the patient’s quality of life.

Outside of diagnosing and treating patients, psychiatric nursing jobs play an important role in preparing patients’ families and caretakers. Caring for an individual with a psychiatric disorder is demanding. By helping to explain the patient’s condition, how medication helps and what steps to take in certain scenarios, psychiatric nurses can make the process easier.

To qualify for psychiatric nurse jobs, candidates need to be a licensed RN. Depending on the state, RNs with a master’s degree may also be permitted to provide therapy and prescribe medication.
