    We humans are very complicated and treating psychiatric and mental health disorders is a very difficult task, but I am glad that this type of dedicated and courageous people exists to help us. I have a brother who followed a long term alcohol rehab and 90% of his successful rehabilitation was thank to the dedication and the professionalism of the doctors and nurses.

    I think being a psychiatric nurse practitioner is one of the most difficult careers one can choose. During my internship at Connecticut drug rehabilitation I spoke to many psychiatric nurses and they each had some amazing stories to tell, about their patients, their profession and what they've been through.
