So I know I want to become a nurse practitioner, I just cannot decide on going FNP for more flexibility or PMHNP because I enjoy learning about the mind. Everyone always tells me to go FNP to be more flexible. I graduated with my BSN from the University of South Alabama in May 2011. After passing boards, I worked in the Air Force as a RN on an orthopedic-surgical unit. I have experience working with trauma, orthopedics, geriatrics, acute rehab, med-surg tele patients. I currently work in a VA hospital in acute rehab taking care of patients with traumatic brain injuries, anoxic brain injuries, mental illnesses, PTSD, strokes and so on. I float to our inpatient psychiatric unit often. After taking care of wounded warriors following IED blasts in Afghanistan, I felt like psych NP was the right route for me. I started a psych NP program via University of South Alabama Spring 2014 but withdrew after one semester. I did not like the learning format. In the Fall of 2015, I started Simmons College online FNP program. I enjoyed the learning format at Simmons however it did not work with my job. I work a panama schedule. I left Simmons after one semester. Now I want to start NP school again and everyone tells me to do FNP. I have been accepted to UTA's FNP program. I was thinking about applying to EKU's PMHNP program but I am not sure. I feel like if I go FNP and I am seeing 13 patients per day. I probably will not enjoy it. I want to have time to listen to my patients, educated them and come up with a treatment plan. I also thought about pursuing FNP and later going for a post-Master's certificate in PMHNPHow do I decide which route to take?
