Hi all --
I graduate in a few months as a PMHNP and have started the job search. I interviewed for a private practice job in an office that takes insurance & found out that it takes at least 3 months to become credentialed with the insurance companies. Some take longer (up to 5 months). I'm wondering what the heck I'll do in between the time I graduate and am able to work. What do people do during this time? Go back to working as an RN? What will happen to everything I've learned? ARRGGG. It really bothers me that I didn't know this before I started interviewing too, I must say.
