I have a difficult decision I need to make. I have been doing a lot of searching online filtering through various schools
. I would love to be a CRNA but cannot afford to take off for the 24 months that it would take to go to school (Solamente, we need my income). I have 3 young children, and have decided that I am also interested in PMHNP, but because I already have an MSN I have to go through a post-master's certificate, and because of the 3 most important people (my children) I need to do it 100% online. That being said, I am finding it more and more difficult to find a post-master's online program that won't cost us an arm and a leg, or our first born.
What I have been seeing is that there are a number of FNP programs that are online with rolling admissions that may get my to where i need to be so that I can get to more PMHNP programs that are offered online but limited to NPs already in practice, which would open up the school pool much wider.
I don't know many PMHNPs who have the same problem that I have (already having an MSN that is not in an APRN). Is there another avenue to consider? Anyone's answers or suggestions are welcome. Thanks everyone!
