  1. PMHNP- advice needed!
    It's up to you. If you know PMHNP is your absolute goal, then I see no reason to put your life on hold. Plus getting school out of the way sooner, rather than later, is always a good idea (you never...

  5. Path to Psych NP
    Oh, my bad. I didn't see that you were planning on keeping your job. Yeah, the direct entry programs require full-time schooling, especially during the accelerated RN year. You will be expected to...

  6. Path to Psych NP
    Direct entry psych NP program, where you do an accelerated RN and then do directly into the NP program. Most programs take 3 years, but a few can have you done in two (Vanderbilt and BC). This is...

  7. Why your local physician group is wary of hiring a new graduate nurse practitioner
    Until nursing starts valuing NP education/strong clinical training over RN experience, this problem will never go away. I have read countless posts on this site about how you don't learn anything in...

  8. Please help w/ path?
    Yeah, I've been seeing several people on this site recommend getting FNP over PMHNP lately because it is supposedly easier to get a job as an FNP... I do not know where people are getting their...

    Wait, what? I don't see how this reply has anything to do with my post? I'm not arguing about changing the face of APN practice, I'm looking to make APN practice actually worth something. My only...

    Uh, I'm not sure what "proof" you are looking for? Do you mean oversupply leading to falling salaries? I believe both law and clinical psychology are good examples of this problem. Both fields...

    I appreciate your thoughtful posts, but I'm going to respectfully disagree with you, trauma. The oversupply of NPs (fueled by for profit programs with low standards for entry) is a huge threat to the...

  12. Requiring Bedside Experience for NP
    I also don't understand arguments against residencies. All of the new grad NPs I know (and I know many) feel that it would be a huge asset. I don't know of one NP who thinks the clinical hours in...

  13. Requiring Bedside Experience for NP
    I think if we want to improve NP education and the standing of our field we need to approach it in two ways: 1. Yes, we should have schools with higher standards to ensure intelligence or,...

  14. Direct entry to NP or RN to NP?
    There is no law that you must work as an RN before NP school (or during NP school). Will it help? Certainly. If you can't find an RN job should you put your life on hold if NP is your ultimate goal?...

  16. Does School Really Matter?
    Seriously? Just take the flipping GRE. It is a fairly easy test and the standards in nursing are pretty low anyway, even CRNA schools let in people with very average scores. Just buy a prep book and...

  17. Starting FNP school in March...Mental Health after graduation?
    hmmm. There are a lot of dual AGNP/PMHNPs and FNP/PMHNPs at my school and all of them seem to practice in either primary care or psych. I haven't seen any that practice both. I think it has to do...

  18. How common is it for a PMHNP to have a job secured prior to graduation?
    I am on the west coast and in a PMHNP program. They told us that the class that just graduated all had jobs lined up prior to graduation. PMHNPs are in very high demand.

  25. Little experience as an RN
    One research study has been done. It found that RN experience did not contribute to NP competence, as measured by MDs and NPs themselves. Everything else is anecdote.
