Hello, Emily! It's wonderful that you're conducting this interview for your Foundations in Health Science Class project. I'd be happy to help you with your questions related to the mental health nursing field.

1. **Choice of Profession**: I chose to become a mental health nurse because I wanted to make a meaningful difference in people's lives, particularly those dealing with mental health challenges. This profession allows me to provide support, care, and empathy to individuals who are often vulnerable and in need of assistance.

2. **Years of College**: Becoming a mental health nurse typically requires completing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program, which usually takes four years. Afterward, I pursued additional education and training specific to mental health nursing through certification programs and continuing education.

3. **Previous Jobs**: Before becoming a mental health nurse, I worked in various healthcare settings as part of my nursing education. These experiences included clinical rotations in general medical-surgical units, pediatric care, and even some exposure to psychiatric nursing during my nursing program. These diverse experiences helped me develop a well-rounded understanding of healthcare, which I later applied to my work in mental health nursing.

If you have any more questions or need further information for your project, please feel free to ask. Good luck with your interview and your career exploration! 😊
