Rn-msn pmhnp vs bsn-msn pmhnpRegister Today!
- by Respiratory817 Jan 20Iam currently a ADN student and I know I want to be a PMHNP infact it is the sole reason for me going to nursing school in the first place. I wanted to know if there were any folks out there who have done the RN to MSN PMHNP program and if it any harder to find a job with that degree vs doing it the more traditional way and getting your bachelors first.
- Jun 5 by melrnbcALNope, and that is exactly the way I am about to completed my MSN degree. I have a projected graduation date of Dec 13 and have received 3 offers for positions contingent upon program completion, passing the boards, and become certified. A Degree is a Degree. What you must be aware of is the accreditation of your chosen college, their board passage rates, and the requirements needed to be able to sit for the certification exam!
- Jun 5 by Respiratory817Thanks for the reply Mel. I will also be done in dec 13, just my adn though. Im looking into the Vanderbilt program out in tenn. because it has minimal on campus requirements.
- Jun 5 by mzaurI don't see why 'minimal on campus requirements' is a good thing. though Vanderbilt is a great program.
- Jun 6 by Respiratory817Minimal on campus requirements are good because I live in TX and the school is in TN. Clinicals will be at a satelite site in my home state and lecture/theory for me anyway is just as good over a computer as it is in the classroom. I have done a bit of research on Vanderbilt and their grads seem to praise the school other than the high cost.
- Jun 11 by JUSTanLPNVandy is a tough school, prestigious and expensive too. Graduating from that grad school will likely open doors across the country for you( despite what ppl say about licensure being all that matters-there is a line eventually to that theory)
With that being said they're very competitive. Ensure top of the line grades and what not and go for it!!
