I am a BSN, currently working in outpatient psych. I am trying to determine which is the best fit for me for advanced practice options. I am debating between CRNA & PMHNP or FNP w/ psych certs (but I plan to exclusively practice in psychiatry. I would only go FNP w/ psych certs because I would have more flexibility with training options.)I gravitate towards psych over anesthesia because I work in military hospitals and am sadly privy to an immense need for more psych providers, and I am passionate about helping people seek help for MH issues, destigmatizing MH, etc.Of course, I am financially motivated by both these options as well. In my area both are the highest paying nurse specialties... I am looking for career longevity and feel like I will have a much longer practice life with psych than I will with anesthesia.Quality of life outside of practice is also important for me. I would like your feedback as practicing providers on call schedules, weekly hours worked, time spent documenting, stress level, etc. Are you satisfied with your decision to practice MH or do you have some regrets? Any advice is sincerely appreciated.
