Psychiatrist nursing is a specializing nursing discipline that aims at helping people suffering from mental disorders. Psychiatrist nurses are experts in mental health, medications, and therapies to overcome mental illness.

- Mood disorders, such as bipolar disorder and depression
- Substance abuse, such as drugs and alcohol
- Alzheimer’s diseases and other forms of dementia
After assessing the patient, a psychiatrist nurse works closely with the patient to develop an individualized plan to offer total care and attention to them that helps them live a productive life.
Psychiatrist nurses can be found working in a variety of different settings such as regular hospitals, psychiatric hospitals, home health care organizations, prisons, outpatient mental health organizations, and schools serving emotional and mental problems.
