Psychiatric nurses play a vital role in catering to patients who are mentally ill and suffering from psychotic disorders, mood and anxiety disorders as well as patients with substance abuse and addiction problems.
Listen to this week's episode as our guest host Jeff Allen talks to Joel Ayapana for an in-depth look at Psychiatric Nursing. Joel also talks about his new book and radio show!
Joel Ayapana RN, BSN, BA
Joel Ayapana RN, BSN, BA is the author of The Book of Positive Light: Rememberance of the Heart, which recounts the meaning of positivity as a story that Joel shares in the hopes of providing mental clarity for readers. A pscyhiatric nurse with more than a decade of experience in the field, Joel's focus lies in the application of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy within the Group Therapy Setting. He will soon be hosting his own BBS Radio Talk Show entitled "Quantum Mindfulness"- a term that Joel has coined to define as "a state of awareness that can be utilized as the tools and the armor of resilience where the theoretical constructs and to where the most profound and amazing of findings discovered by researchers of Quantum Physics and Mechanics are integrated with Heart-Centered Consciousness and Awakened Mindfulness."
Joel is also a Veteran of the United States Air Force and has been a Registered Nurse in Cleveland, Ohio, delivering first rate care to mentally ill patients, victims of substance abuse and anxiety disorders as well as the homeless.
