I am working as a Paramedic in a fire dept right now and am burnt out. I am doing a 1 year transition from Medic-RN next year then a 1 year BSN online program while I gain experience.
I think I want to try a new field besides emergency once I am doing with my current career and am thinking Mental Health. How hard is it to get accepted into a Mental Health NP Program? Are there plenty of programs that are 2 years of length once I complete my BSN? I am hoping a year or 2 of nursing experience as well as my medic experience will be good enough for my applications. My original undergrad GPA in Poli Sci from back in the day is awful but my post bacc GPA is close to a 4.0 and my science GPA is great. I am planning on killing it in nursing school as well so those grades will help out as well I hope.
My friend just got into CRNA school and she said it was incredibly competitive, is Psych NP close to as competitive? I am not picky on where I live during school. Thanks and I tried searching for answers and googling but I am still a little confused on MSN-NP education
