Brandee Hassell, RN, BSN
I’m Brandee Hassell RN, BSN, and I have worked in mental health for the past eight years. I started off my nursing career in Spokane, Washington, working as a Registered Nurse at Northpointe Skilled Nursing Facility, then moved back to San Diego, where I worked as a psychiatric charge nurse in the emergency psych unit at San Diego County Mental Health Hospital (CMH). I also worked at CMH as a Mental Health Worker. I later joined the Naval Medical Center, where I worked as a Behavioral Healthcare Facilitator before being promoted to Mental Health Case Manager at the San Diego Naval Medical Center San Diego. I find Mental Health Case Management has been the highlight of my career so far. I graduated from Southwestern College in 2011 with an Associate Degree in Nursing. I also earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing from California State Dominguez Hills in 2016. I’m currently attending Maryville University in the Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner Program.
