    You would have to compare the 2 curricula and see exactly what courses you are missing. There is some overlap, of course. Depending on the age of your FNP course work, the school may require course repeats.

    Tired of FNP?

    It is quite a different skill set.

    I wouldn't mind adding the psych just by the sheer numbers of psych patients we see in primary care and having the capacity to address those issues at that level would be nice. Also with 8months plus of waiting for a psych provider in my area, most PCPs are already having to fill that role.

    It depends on the program. Some post-master's psych programs are part time. Others are mandatory full-time. The Johns Hopkins program is online and can be completed in one year. They will find your preceptors, too.
