Pros: Good training, good exposure to a variety of patients
Cons: quite a few code purples on the adult unit, but I never really felt unsafe due to security and safety protocols
Working as an intern as a social worker/intern gave me the most experience in the field. A typical day involved psychosocial assessments, treatment planning, setting up out patient appointments, conducting group therapy, family sessions, answering phone calls, light filing of charts, and documentation. It was a fast paced environment, but a good way to be a strong clinician.
