FNP in a non-clinical position

  1. Hey all,

    Are there any FNP working in a non-clinical setting? If so, what is your current role.

    Thank you for your response...

    Anybody? I would love to know as well, Im a PsychNP. Have been thinking of getting into nursing informatics but dont want to take a huge paycut. Im just not the type of person that can do the same job for 30yrs.

    We have the same issue because I don't want to diagnosis and treat patient forever. I would love to move to developing health promotion programs or running a public health program.

    I've heard forensics/becoming an expert witness can be very interesting (and lucrative!)

    This role is done with a NP degree?

    Plenty of NPs working as bedside nurses in my hospital. I can think os 5 or 6 off the top of my head.

    Is that their primary job or they doing it as supplemental income?

    *** All are full time so if they have another job doing something else they must be part time there. A couple I know well enough to know that it is their only job. Mostly the say they couldn't take the pay cut since NPs in this area only start at $80-100K, considerably less than they can make as staff RNs.

    Isn't there a way for nurses to go into the business side of health care? Like, somehow CNOs become CNOs, and I imagine they have other business roles along the way. Not sure how that would work though.

    I'm in education making around 80k but that's because I can't find a NP job in a clinical area down here in Florida and moving is not an option.

    I am hoping to move to Florida at some point from SC. I thinkI am going to change tracks from NP to MSN-public health. This degree will allow me to teach or manage health promotion programs.

    Anyone doing Legal consultant work as an NP? Or insurance, informatics?
    I could never go back to bedside nursing no matter what the pay.

    Same here, sister! I can't even do the same "profession" for that long, lol.
