I'm a relatively new grad RN (six months of psych experience so far--still peeking around for med/surge and other arenas). The main reason I got into nursing was to work in psych and become (what was at the time an ARNP, but is now moving into) a DNP in psych. I'm working on my BSN now and would like to continue onto my DNP, I already know what university I would attend... but when I searched for Psych DNP nursing jobs, nothing much comes up?
This is rather distressing. Is it just that most places don't advertise for DNP jobs? Most of the DNP's I know work with a psychiatrist in their office, which I suppose wouldn't really advertise, but as for working in hospitals or acute care settings, wouldn't I be able to find those job postings?
So, psych dnps/arnps/etc, is it easy to find jobs? Or am I just wasting my time pursuing this expensive degree?
