Why are you passionate about providing mental healthcare?
I’ve known since my high school psychology course that I wanted to have a career in mental health, and went on to major in psychology as an undergrad. I went into nursing with the intention of focusing on psychiatric nursing, and it was my goal early on to earn my Master’s degree and become a nurse practitioner so that I could affect change at a higher level. Despite the great strides we have made in mental healthcare, there is still much work to be done to spread awareness, eliminate the stigma, and make psychiatric care more available and normalized.
