  2. Suggestions on possible NP job offer

  6. NP Salary
    Partly correct. The schooling, "knowledge", and potential for superior outcomes have nothing to do with the compensation. In Business-stand-point, it is purely based on supply-and-demand and what...

  7. Questions about being a NP
    For most patients, yes. For many docs, no. No. It is the best thing I could do consider my old age > 30. If you are less than 30, reconsider MD or PhD.

  14. Psych in California - Is this a good job?
    This is pain management.. not psych. I don't think you are qualified to do this. It has to be FNP.

    This favorite topic appears again :) My thought is 'yes', unless the push for DNP is realized. However, this will not avoid and only delay the inevitable. Although it is true that there is...

  19. 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...

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

  22. 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....
