I am a RN MSN who has recently been accepted to a PMHNP program. I plan to study both pediatric & adult. I have heard that in some states a PMHNP can function independently within their own private practice? Is anyone here doing this and if so, can you share how you set up your business plan, if there are any management companies or mentors that help new PMHNP's set up their business? Is there a state list somewhere?
Also, I'm just interested in learning how difficult it was to obtain employment with this specialty and your overall satisfaction within this specialization (challenges/positives).
Thanks so much!
