Psychiatric Nurses

High School

Psychiatric nurses must first become registered nurses. To prepare for this career, you should take high school mathematics and science courses, including biology, chemistry, and physics. Health courses will also be helpful. English and speech courses should not be neglected because you must be able to communicate well with patients. Nurses also use computers to maintain patient information, so taking a few basic computer science classes will be useful.
