Hello, Has anyone made the switch from FNP (primary care) to PMHNP (psychiatry)? If so, what were your reasons, and was it worth it? I graduated as an FNP in 2020, completed a yearlong residency, and though I'm doing fine at work, I'm struggling to find work-life balance and am really disillusioned with how little time I have with patients and how rushed our visits are. I am considering the post-master's PMHNP certificate because I want to have the luxury of time to spend with patients--at both of my jobs, psychiatry gets 30-60 minute appointments with patients versus 15 minutes for primary care. I also like the idea of flexibility. It seems psychiatry has more options for remote work. Becoming an expert in one area, rather than a jack of all trades, also appeals to me. I'd love to hear the perspective of people working in the field. Perhaps the grass is not greener--I want to know before I drop another $40k on school 🙂 Thank you for insight!
