Danei Edelen: How did you know you wanted to be a psychiatric nurse?
Sue Brammer: My mother was a nurse, so nursing was a logical path for me. I remember early in college talking to my mother about the fact that nursing didn’t seem to fit. By the time I finished my rotations, she said, I would know. She was right. After I had my psychiatry clinical in 1978, I knew it and I never looked back.
