EllenRichter: Welcome @ocdgirl2000 @KPNurseRecruit :) #RNchat
rnchat: T1 Psych Nursing: What are the biggest hurdles to proper treatment? (Not just for "Psych
RNs" here - all Nursing.) #RNchat
onlinenursing: @EllenRichter wish I was listening 2 that. Instead, 3 kids and husband playing 'rock band'
with Queen going. Not so inspiring #RNChat
Nerdnurse: @rnchat T!: Funding. No bucks anymore for psych. #RNchat
EllenRichter: T1 Not a psyche RN but know the uphill battle trying to get a psych consult on a critical care
patient who needs mental help #RNchat
onlinenursing: #RNChat T1: Hurdles-access due to cost (30% of my pt. pool no insurance), 30-40% with
Medicaid (which also means no access to specialists)
KPNurseRecruit: @onlinenursing LOL Rockband! #RNChat
onlinenursing: #RNChat T1: Yes @Nerdnurse - no funding! Also, not enough psychiatric practitioners.
Have psychologist N clinic 1day/wk (rare in Fam. prac)
Nerdnurse: T1 Perception that psych isn't "real" illness needing treatment. #RNchat
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T1 insurance company rules ie referrals needed, fax,time restraints, waiting,
formats, signatures missing,etc.coding wrong.calls F/U
rnchat: If you're new to #RNchat - you don't have to reply to @RNchat when responding (unless

psychiatric practitioners. Have psychologist N clinic 1day/ ...
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T1 makes it so overwhelming to patient,they give up!not worth going, non-complaint
with care due to fatigue from system restraints!
EllenRichter: T1 Sometimes we cant get a psychiatrist to evaluate a Baker Act patient because no one is
on the "call list" anymore! #RNchat
Nerdnurse: @onlinenursing Not too compelling to become psych practitioner when battle for money is
so tight and people don't see value of care. #RNchat
onlinenursing: #RNChat - T1 - Not only "not a real illness" But social stigma in rural health practice, .ALSO,
no one wants 2 see kids
EllenRichter: RT @Nerdnurse: @onlinenursing Not compelling 2 becom psych practitioner when battle for
$$ is so tight & ppl don't see value of care #RNchat
Nerdnurse: After Wedgewood Baptist Church shooting by schizophrenic off meds, psych care got
funded for a while in FW. Didn't last. #RNchat
onlinenursing: #RNChat- MO looking at legislation for psychologists to write RXs. This would be good, but
also raises all new questions about RXs
Nerdnurse: @onlinenursing Psychologists writing RXs would be terriﬁc! #RNchat
onlinenursing: @EllenRichter #RNChat - what is baker act? Also... yes, what happened to good old call
lists? I miss them. Good points @Nerdnurse.
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T1 the diagnoses for referral has to really be speciﬁc and mitigating!how can a
primary doctor describe an acute problem?then refer
rnchat: T1 As a follow-up: in your opinions has Psychiatry evolved much in 50 yrs? Or has it been
neurobiology & psychopharm doing legwork? #RNchat
Nerdnurse: RT @ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T1 so overwhelming to pt, give up!not worth going,
non-complaint with care due to fatigue from system restraints!
onlinenursing: I say let psych NP's write 4 controlled substances in all states & admit(heck, already do
counseling and medically manage pts). #RNchat.
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T1 many primary physicians think they CAN treat psych illness as well! you would
be surprised how many try to take on the role!
3 of 15 1/23/10 9:33 AM
Nerdnurse: @rnchat T1 Agree neurobio, psychopharm doing real work--exciting stuff, tho. #RNchat
onlinenursing: @RNChat Good question! I would agree... look there are no research $s in sociocultural
interventions. Research is where $$$ are. #RNChat.
EllenRichter: @onlinenursing Baker Act a quickie wiki link http://i.cx/12z a limited way to keep one under
watch if they could harm self/others #RNchat
onlinenursing: RT @Nerdnurse @ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T1 so overwhelming to pt, give up!not worth
going,non-complaint w/care due 2 fatigue frm system!
rnchat: Next topic coming up in a minute. #RNchat
Nerdnurse: #RNchat @onlinenursing @ocdgirl2000 Psych NPs writing & admitting more qualiﬁed than
most primary care!
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T1 there was a movement in the 80's for least the least restrictive environment
leading to less inpatient settings,this reduced care
onlinenursing: RT @EllenRichter: Baker Act-wiki- http://bit.ly/82FMQN limited way 2keep 1 under watch if
could harm self/others #RNchat good old 96 hr hold
EllenRichter: T1 We all know ppl who are depressed, no health insur, could really beneﬁt from psych
help/drugs but cant get $ assistance #RNchat
rnchat: T2 Nursing Challenges: What are the worst things about Nursing (from your perspective)?
What can be done to make positive changes? #RNchat
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T1 this, in the minds of insurance companies, made the care of mental illness,
inpatient, a questionable re-imbursement, forever.
onlinenursing: @ocdgirl2000 Good point about outpatient movement (deinstitutionalizing) -also getting
Meds not entire picture. Psych=complex care #RNChat
rnchat: Following up to T2 - We all b7tch from time to time. :) But what are the core problems the
profession must address & rut out? #RNchat
Nerdnurse: T2 Sometimes I think we need to change the name of our profession. Too many female
overtones still. #RNchat
4 of 15 1/23/10 9:33 AM
EllenRichter: Yes!! RT @onlinenursing @ocdgirl2000 Meds not entire picture. Psych=complex care
onlinenursing: #RNChat - T2 - worst things about nursing-hours/overtime,lateral violence,non-agreement
about entry to practice,little mentoring of upcoming
Nerdnurse: T2 Entry into practice is still not resolved. #RNchat
Nerdnurse: T2 still eating our young #RNchat
EllenRichter: T2 If I could undo & redo the nursing profession, I would make only ONE option for minimal
educational requirement...BSN #RNchat
onlinenursing: RT @Nerdnurse: T2 Sometimes I think we need to change the name of our profession. Too
many female overtones still. #RNchat (good idea)
Nerdnurse: RT @EllenRichter: T2 YES: I would make only ONE option for minimal educational
EllenRichter: Yes thats certainly a downfall RT @nerdnurse & @onlinenursing Too many female
overtones still #RNchat
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T2 well, RN retention should be a nationalized issue now.PERIOD.the fact that it's
not. is criminal.workplaces R getting away with..
InfusionNurse: T2..lack of professional recognition and respect from other HCP's...still many stereotypes
going on.. #rnchat
Nerdnurse: T2 Entry into practice such a hot button, though. Many good nurses disagree. #RNchat
EllenRichter: T2 The multiple ways of becoming an RN has created dissidence within our profession &
and confusion by outsiders #RNchat
rnchat: @onlinenursing That's an highlighting point. Nursing does still seem to retain a holdover
from the inﬂuence Paternalist times. #RNchat
onlinenursing: @EllenRichter Amen-let's start there.RNs in BSN completion progR so tired of school.Still
they press on.Want them all 2 get there. #RNChat
Nerdnurse: RT @InfusionNurse: T2..lack of professional recognition and respect from other HCP's...still
many stereotypes going on.. #rnchat
5 of 15 1/23/10 9:33 AM
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T2 reducing the RN population. without retention, there will be less and less
RN's.OK. who will do this. if not us?
onlinenursing: RT @ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T2 well, RN retention should be a nationalized issue
now.PERIOD.the fact that it's not is criminal. :)
EllenRichter: T2 Almost every nation on Earth has BSN as minimum standard for entry into practice
except the USA! Whats that about? #RNchat
onlinenursing: RT @InfusionNurse: T2..lack of professional recognition and respect from other HCP's...still
many stereotypes going on.. #rnchat (agree!)
InfusionNurse: T2...also dislike reference to "nurse" as just anyone who wears scrubs and assist patients or
onlinenursing: @EllenRichter #RNChat - well the 1s that actually hv some RN education and recognition
by licensure.Look at how many nations have nothing.
EllenRichter: T2 Many of our new nurses are entering advanced practice & that will ﬁll a big need, but
who will work at the bedside in 20 yrs? #RNchat
onlinenursing: @InfusionNurse #RNChat - oh yeah... like the receptionist or housekeeping. Tee hee. They
are important, but not a nurse.
KPNurseRecruit: #rnchat some RN programs are as fast as 17 mo...while other hc prof are bach prepared
min. Many PT positions now require PhD
EllenRichter: How true! >> RT @onlinenursing:Look at how many nations have nothing. (relating to RN
education and recognition) #RNchat
Nerdnurse: T2 Maybe a renaming would solve entry questions. Different licenses & names for different
degrees. But keep advanced nurses bedside #RNchat
onlinenursing: @InfusionNurse #RNChat - how about how they portray nurses on shows like Greys
Anatomy, House, & Private Practice? LUV that. Re: stereotype
Nerdnurse: T2 Media portrayals of nurses a huge problem. Hope all follow Truth About Nursing.
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T2 the "health room techs" in school health! they get called "the NURSE!" some
don't even have high school educations!

InfusionNurse: RT @ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T2 the "health room techs" in school health! get called "the
NURSE!" dont even have high school educations! #rnchat
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T2 techs work under RN license, get all the accolades,RN is treated like trash by
the government who employs her AND the tech.
InfusionNurse: Yes, but how? RT @EllenRichter: T2 Yes, we really need to break that "handmaiden" mold
given to us as nurses #rnchat
onlinenursing: #RNChat - T2 - soooo... like @Nerdnurse said - let's rename... what should we be?
Something super cool like WONDERWOMEN or something.
EllenRichter: T2 I precept senior nursing students in my ICU & I'm not sure young people are always
entering the profession for the right reasons #RNchat

Nerdnurse: #RNchat T2 No substitute by techs for the critical thinking of a seasoned RN. Must sell that.
onlinenursing: @ocdgirl2000 Good point. I think the plan is to keep from paying 4 older RN's retirement.
We must cost too much. #RNChat. - T2
onlinenursing: @EllenRichter Tee hee "THE FORCE"-maybe we should plan entire BSN nursing
curriculum around Star Wars & train Jedi Knights.love it! #RNChat

InfusionNurse: T3, potential for misleading/ inaccurate information... #rnchat
EllenRichter: T3 The downside of our dependence on the web is that we cant exist without it anymore!
EllenRichter: @Nerdnurse @RNchat @onlinenursing T3 LOL yes I think that all of the participants here
tonight are members of Internet Anonymous :) #RNchat
onlinenursing: T3 - #RNChat - O.K. seriously.... anonymity that could mean we can't contact people with

workers rights,& legal rights.Nurses R clueless
EllenRichter: T3 I cant work a single day at the hospital or in the legal ﬁeld without whipping out my PDA
to surf for an answer to some question #RNchat

anyway :) #RNchat
rnchat: @EllenRichter I could see that - there's deﬁnitely a lot of potential with the technology.
EllenRichter: Yes, these are some of the things to be cautious of >> RT @KPNurseRecruit: #RNChat T3
KPNurseRecruit: RT @onlinenursing: RT @EllenRichter: T3 The internet will b the stepping stone 2 universal
h/c practices #RNchat
onlinenursing: @Nerdnurse #RNChat - great point. Nurses will weed through information & set EBP

computers, whether they like it or not #RNchat
