I've been looking around awhile and while it seems there used to be university programs scattered about the nation that offered both family NP and Psych NP certification, I can't find a single program now.
Does anyone know if this combo of dual FNP/Psych certification exists anymore or is it that now the only option is to choose 1 over the other as your main
and then return to school again for a post master's in the missing certification?
Thanks, I tend to think long term and I want the broadest scope of practice possible with the various things I'm interested in

It's 1000 hours in a five year period. Only 200 hours per year (at least for AANP which is FNP-C)
Thanks for the clarification on that , is there a common way that dual fnp/pmnh keep their stuff all current without much hassle? I know many NP seem to have this dual combination.
I won't need to work 2 jobs in two different worlds will I? Shouldn't FNP hours always be counted in psych populations since you work with any age group and there's often comorbidities between mental health issues and the rest of the body? It just seems smart to me if someone had both skills in family and also psych. They fit so natural.
