Relevant Experiences

I work as a psychiatric nurse in home health where I go to patient’s homes. I’ve worked in patients psychiatric units for many years and helped set up one several years ago. I am an RN who has worked many years in psych but I am not an NP (nurse practitioner). I have done chart utilization review – but not for quite a years. I also used to teach psychiatric nursing, but again, that was many years ago. I do teach currently – but that is in the area of communication and writing.
