How to earn highest pay in Psych Nursing?

  1. Does anybody know what is generally thought to be the highest earning advanced degree/certification (not including PhD) or avenue/career path , for nurses interested in Psych Nursing? Is it Psych Mental Health NP or would you recommend something else? Thank you!

    For highest potential nursing income ... enter another field. Advance practice RN's ie: nurse paractitioners, are hopefully paid more than the rest of us. They certainly have more responsiblity. Psychiatry is the "red headed step child" of medicine so we just don't get the funds that other fields do. I have heard that anesthesia nurses pull down serious money. But that's just hear say.
