Mentally  ill  patient went through a  lot of torture and problems for lack of development in  the field of psychiatry. With the introduction of understanding of the human behaviour during the later part of the 19th century,  it brought in  the change  in  care and attitude towards the mentally ill patients.  

Patient care has changed dramatically since 1930's and psychiatric nurses have kept pace with  the changing trends of  care.  In  1882, "celebration for psychiatric nurse" was held at Virgina, and  the Mclean Asylum Training School for nurses was identified as a pioneering institution in mental health. It was the first formally organized training school conducted within a mental hospital. In 1882, Mclean Hospital also initiated training in Psychiatric Nursing at Waverly,Massachusetts.
