Psychiatric Nurse Information:

Patients with mental illnesses are the primary focus of psychiatric nurses. They are responsible for the proper diagnosis, management and treatment of the mentally challenged. Patients with bipolar disorder as well as other disorders will more than likely be treated by a nurse who's had additional training in mental disorders.

Psychiatric Nurses also have roles as crisis intervention specialists, counselors, consultants and teachers. They are essential in monitoring the progress of their patients. In some cases, they work with a team of additional specialists if the patient's symptoms require it.
