I'm a psych Np student in TN and upon graduation I am interested in getting a license in another state to see patients via telepsychiatry following a year of experience. I'd like for it to be a state with full practice authority. I've narrowed it down to Colorado, Washington, California and Arizona. Does anyone have experience with which states appear to have the most opportunities and greatest need for telepsychiatry?
I have a friend who does well in upstate NY. Now I mean WAY upstate. Personally I would not dream of doing telepsych without a lot of experience and without taking formal telemedicine courses. There are some real pitfalls.
