I think PMHNPs can get gigs that involve some counseling (or at least most involve assessment and some talking that goes along with med mgmt). Just like psychiatrists, right?

Yeah we do sneak in some psychotherapy but like with psychiatrists during a 20 minute medication check it really doesn't leave much time for chit chat.

Specializes in Critical Care. Has 8 years experience.

its hard to, a Psych NP in my city who has her own practice (not common for my state) does hour long sessions with therapy and med management. She told me she isnt making enough to make a family well off, but is making some money. her husband works so it works for her, but wouldn't work for many of us.

she doesnt do insurance billing, just cash. my guess is getting on board with companies as an NP as well as billing for both psychotherapy which doesnt pay much and med check together is complicated.
