Typically working with other members of a health care team such as psychologist, psychiatrists, social workers, and therapists, professionals with psychiatric nursing jobs perform a range of functions to support the team. Maintaining medical histories and administering treatment are the common tasks for psychiatric nursing jobs.

For many psychiatric nursing jobs a high school diploma or its equivalent is a sufficient level of education although different qualifications may exist for different States. Training programs are offered in some nursing care facilities, vocational-technical centers, some community colleges, and high schools.

In 2006 there were about 62,000 individuals with psychiatric nursing jobs employed with the majority working in nursing and residential care facilities.
