Reviews on Mizzou's online PMHNP program, both DNP and MSN.

Is the psych NP field saturated? Would it be wise to go the BSN-DNP route instead of the MSN route?

 

I am aware that there is no significant pay difference between DNP vs. MSN in the NP role.

Yes the field is saturating. If your concern is income and you don't LOVE psych I would become an FNP so that you have more options. 

 

At this point I only recommend people do PMHNP if they love psych. It's the fastest growing NP specialty and it has saturated quickly. If you love only psych then that's fine but if you're chasing the money you may end up miserable making the same or less compared to an FNP while doing a job you dislike.

Did you end up going to the University of Missouri? If so how is it? I am applying to the Spring 2023 PMHNP MSN program.
