“A two to three-page admission essay describing reasons for seeking the perception in psychiatry and the hours detailed. If you have received requirements by school, please attach it.“ Above is description from the document sent to me by the office. Some background. I’m an Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) student. Graduating in August, 2022. I’ve been a nurse for 9 years. LPN for 5 and RN for 4. As an LPN I worked in corrections at the county jail for 1.5 years. Developed a passion for mental health and underserved populations. Currently working in the ED where I encounter more of the same patients. Returned to school to provide for patients in ways I can’t at the bedside as a nurse.
