Hello everyone who might be going into the field of psychiatry or who work in psych nursing. I am currently pursuing my BSN and work in a county program for the mentally ill. I want to pursue my Master's in psychology as a nurse practitioner however, don't know anyone who can give me any advice in this field and how lucrative it might be. The mind fascinates me and so does my job however, I live in a very small county and throughout our county, there is not a single Nurse Practitioner who practices psychiatry. Would really appreciate any feedback from anyone out there.
