I am soon to begin an RN/MSN program to become a psychiatric mental health np. I'm very excited! I have spoken with several PMHNPs who work in hospital settings, but am interested in going into private practice doing psychotherpay and prescribing in WA state, where NPs can practice independently. I would love to hear about how PMHNPs in private practice structure their schedule (psychotheraly/med check) and how many clients they typically see in a day. Thanks in advance!
