2017:  Nurse Capacity to Care for Mental Health Patients
This original research, conducted at three Southern California hospitals, examined non-psychiatric nurses’ perceived competencies to assess and care for persons with mental health needs hospitalized on non-psychiatric units. A 31-item instrument administered through on-line delivery method yielded responses from 833 nurses; nurse-indicated strengths and weakness were identified. Results will be used as a basis for further clinical education.
