new nurse thinking of future! Thank you so much! T.
May I suggest two books. One is How I Became A Nurse Entrepreneur. 50 Stories of nurses in business. Published by the National Nurses in Business Association.
Another is a text--Advanced Practice Psychiatric Nursing by Ann Wolbert Burgess.
It covers consulting in psych but I'm sure it could give you some ideas that you could
use as a PNP. Advanced Practice Nurses have been Consult Laisons, Case Managers, Inservice Instructors, and in private practice. My plan is to use my computer skills as a computer technician, along with my 20 years of psych nursing experience. I am now in school studying for my Masters in Psych nursing. I am hoping to do individual and group psychotherapy. I hope to focus on those among us who are technophobic and assist them in learning computer skills in a non anxiety
producing environment.So, T, dream a dream and make it come true!!! Good luck.
