Psychiatric Mental Health - Nursing Flashcards

The Level Up RN Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing Flashcards were designed to help both nurses and nursing students learn and digest the most important facts and concepts regarding psychiatric mental health. Patients with mental health concerns and disorders are in every type of nursing environment. It is essential that nurses be able to effectively assess for mental health concerns, advocate for patients, ensure patient safety (AND personal safety), and provide therapeutic communication. There are three sections of psychiatric mental health knowledge covered in our flashcards:

  • Principles
  • Therapies
  • Disorders

Our flashcards provide the key information you need to know to pass your class exams, ATI or HESI exams, and the NCLEX. Our flashcards contain just the core information you need to know, without all the fluff. We also incorporate memory tools and tricks to make learning fun and effective. This helps you:

  • Focus on the most important information.
  • Save time and effort when studying.
  • Retain the information more effectively.
