Best options for PMHNP


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.
