I have just finished my degree and I'm now a registered nurse and have worked in many different areas throughout my studies, including mental health. Some of the things Hiking Fox mentioned sadly don't surprise me. Nurses are among the most trusted professionals in Australia and I would imagine it's similar throughout the world. It's sad to think that so many abuse this trust in their job. Makes you wonder why a lot of people choose nursing as a career in the first place.
absolutely mate , having worked in adult care (intellectual disability,autism in combo with severe challenging behaviour) and in special schools I reckon about 50% of the workers are there because they actually help clients, about 20% are gonna eventually leave cause they are in it just to have money coming in and 30% get off on being in control of the clients/patients/students.
