The Roles of Responsibilities of a Psychiatric Nurse

Psychiatric Nursing is a specialist nursing discipline that works with people who are experiencing mental health problems. Psychiatric Nurses work with both the individual and their families in times of distress and help them overcome and manage these types of situations. This is a highly person-centred discipline that focuses fully on care and treatment of the individual or family in need. Psychiatric nursing care is constantly evolving to meet the challenging mental health needs and the way mental healthcare is delivered.

Psychiatric Nurses take on a 4-year program (degree) that provides them with the skills and knowledge to meet the needs of the individual and/or family. There are many important skills a Psychiatric Nurse needs to be good at their job, here are just a few of them:

  • Compassion
  • Resilience
  • Communication
  • Problem Solving
  • Adaptability
