Discussion on My Career Option to Become a PMHNP
           Since the inception of nursing, few envisioned that nursing care needs would have grown exponentially and diversified to where they are currently. The field of mental health nursing has always fascinated me and has quickly become my passion over the years. My motivation to join this nursing field is driven by the burden of mental health and substance abuse disorders that have grown in the last decades. According to Rehm and Shield (2019), approximately one billion individuals have been affected by these disorders globally since 2016. In my professional experience thus far, I have witnessed how individuals with mental health disorders are among the most under-served patient population, partly due to an understaffed workforce to meet the rising mental health burden (Delaney and Vanderhoef., 2019). The world-renowned physicist Albert Einstein once famously remarked that a life spent in service to others is the only life worth living. I have used this as my guiding maxim to always help me remember why mental health issues are important to me. 
While serving as a registered nurse in psychiatric inpatient units has enabled equipped me with skills and knowledge to care for the needs of patients with mental health and substance abuse disorders, I feel that in order for me to take on more responsibilities and better serve my patients, I need to pursue an advance practice role. In addition to the professional values of altruism, competency, and human dignity, I intend to be fully committed to my patients and practice self-awareness when dealing with patients and their families. These values will enable me to incorporate evidence-based practice to ensure that my patients receive the best care. In order to gain the requisite skills, knowledge, and competencies for an advanced practice role, I intend to complete my psychiatric and mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP) program and get PMHNP-BC certified. I will be relentlessly determined to always learn and add to my skills, knowledge, and attitudes to become a holistic mental healthcare professional.
