I am a RN currently pursuing my BSN and I'm trying to decide what the next step in my career is. I have four years working with substance abuse/detox, two years working with children psych and two years working in a Level 2 Trauma/NeuroICU. I currently work in the ICU full times and do the children psych and detoxper diem.
I enjoy all three. My question is should I get my Master's in Psych or Medical NP.
1. What is the pay rate in South Florida starting for both?
2. What is the job outlook? I hear there are lots of FNP jobs advertised butyou have to know someone to get hired.
3. Is there a market for psych NP's? What does a psych NP do? Where do they work?
4. I know UF has a psych NP course. Does any other universities in S. Fl. offer this course.
I would appreciate any other suggestions for other career paths.
Thanks for responding
