  3. Family NP vs Psychiatric NP..whose more favorable / marketable
    That's completely fine (1 in 5 ratio) because that's still even more than the ratio between FNP and PMHNP job availability is.... I know schools that produced quadruple that in recent years and near...

  5. Family NP vs Psychiatric NP..whose more favorable / marketable

  6. Family NP vs Psychiatric NP..whose more favorable / marketable
    In my state, FNP is more marketable and flexible. Marketability of each specialty depends on location. In fact, FNP or ANP can even replace PMHNP in my state. There is no specialty restriction here....

  11. Why the NP degree will be the next MBA with 7 simple, quick reasons
    Thank you for speaking the truth! You may be against DNP but requiring DNP now would be the "temporary" solution! That will raise the bar and make people think twice before investing in education.

  12. What do you fellow NP's think of this?

  15. P/MHNP
    I am against having separate forum for PMHNP. It is unfair to other specialties. There are varieties of APRN specialities. PMHNP do not deserve more attention than any other specialties. We are all...

  17. Too many online NP programs
    In addition to this distinction, people also need to distinguish between online-synchronous class VS independent / on-your-own online learning. The former is more rigorous. I agree with "synchronous"...

  20. Psychiatric NP what can I do?
