Need psych np preceptor

  1. Hello All,

    I am searching for a Psych NP preceptor for September, 2017. My designated preceptor opted-out last week and I'm trying to replace her for 2 days/week.

    I'm super dependable and a hard worker. If it helps, I am a FNP-BC and available for work in the family practice role 3 days a week as well.

    I'm in Texas but willing to travel. PLEASE HELP!

    Thank you!

    I always recommend a psychiatrist over a NP. Definitely a young, sharp psychiatrist would be my target. Good luck.

    Absolutely! A psychiatrist or an NP would do at this point.

    Thanks for the advice, Jules!

    You could consider cold calling or going in person to small outpatient practices because some psychiatrists who are self employed are finding that even at a very good NP rate we are still way cheaper than bringing another psychiatrist into the practice.

    Hey guys. I've run across this forum many times but this is the first time I've posted. I've been having a bit of inner turmoil for some time now trying to decide what will be my next move for my future. I currently am a critical care nurse in a very high acuity CVICU. I've worked here for two years and it has been the only job I've had as an RN. I primarily went into nursing with the end goal of becoming a CRNA. However, at times I find myself debating whether I want to work in a high stress hospital environment anymore (granted, these thoughts usually occur after a rough night). I've been thrown in the flames many times over at my current job. I was forced to start charge nursing in the CVICU only 9 months into my career as a nurse. I was overwhelmed and terrified most every night. I had a unit full of staff even younger than myself all looking up to me for answers that I didn't have. I've since become a lot more experienced and confident in my skills, but feel my experiences so far have left a bit of a sour taste in my mouth.

    Sorry for the rambling. I've got everything lined up to apply for CRNA school, but am a little nervous. As I said, the whole reason I wanted to be a nurse was for the chance to be a CRNA. Most nights I enjoy what I do, but the stress does get to me time to time.

    Is there anyone who experienced burnout as an RN? Did anyone have any doubts about their career as a nurse, but went on to have success/happiness by furthing their career to become a CRNA?

    Thanks for any responses
