Introduction Mental health is considered as an essential part of health in which an individual recognizes their full capacity to deal with pressures that surround them, work productively and be of positive influence to society. World Health Organization [WHO] (2008) reported that Australia contributes an estimate of 29.4% of neuropsychiatric on the global burden of disease. In 2015 the revised Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation [ANMF] Policy states that the distribution of health care in mental health nursing requires skills and expertise for them to deliver a complete, broad and universal mental health care to affected individuals. Thus, the sustenance of the mental health nursing should be given comprehensive, intensive and sufficient support. This research will explore the perspectives of psychiatric nurses from different facilities regarding their reason in choosing mental health nursing and remaining as mental health nurse (MHN). Findings will be used as a reference for the retention and recruitment of mental health nursing.
