Hi. I'm interested in pursuing a PMHNP but not sure of my best options. I've read that I would mainly be prescribing meds and not doing therapy. I want to be involved in therapy as well. Would adding a FNP degree increase my options or should I also become a CNS?

So basically I'm trying to decide if I should look for a dual FNP-PMHNP program or start with a FNP program and then pursue a post masters certificate in psych or a DNP. I'm afraid to just ask specific schools because I feel like they will just promote which ever options they have. So any advice on this and/or programs available to achieve my goals would be greatly appreciated. I'm currently living in NE Florida.

Thank you in advance.

Psych CNS is no longer an option. The credential has been "retired."
