I feel like there's many threads for this ___VS Psych NP topic already.
I hope I am not repeating myself. Job opportunities are much more
abundant for Adult NP and FNP. Yes, for sure. That's why when you searched, you see a lot more jobs from medical NP. But remember, at this time,
despite the very small numbers of opening in psych, the number of new grad for psych NP is still kept at low level. In my state, there is 2 schools for Psych NP VS 6 schools for FNP. But remember, if the school increases the enrollment just a little bit, the Psych NP can be easily saturated due to that small amount of opening. It will change in the future and it maybe harder to get a job. So if you think about job opportunities/flexibility, FNP/ Medical NP is much better.
So here is the logic. More new grads produced for Medical NP but A LOT more job openings. Much less job availability for Psych NP but less new grads produced. Make sense? job prospect should be the same long as the school keep producing at the same ratio.
